This is a great video. Sadly many post-modern evangelists use Revelation 3:20 in their evangelism efforts, as well as in altar calls. It’s a crime against God to knowingly and willfully take Him out of context. Not too mention how this unbiblical practice creates many false converts.
This precautionary principle should also apply to John 3:16, and the many other ‘whosoever’ verses.
I don’t want to have this blood on my hands. Just before the Apostle Paul was martyred, in Acts 20:25-31, he gave the following dying death declaration.
“And indeed, now I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, will see my face no more. Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the ‘whole counsel’ of God. Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.”
Soteriology is an essential doctrine difference, and we must repent from cutting and pasting God’s Word out of Biblical context. I am thankful for the Christians that once pointed out my errs in regards to this. Only by the grace of God so go I.
