Words of Comfort: The Greatest Deception.


The greatest deception to fall upon humanity isn't atheism, communism, universalism, asceticism, or pantheism. It is by far the deception of self-righteousness--the erroneous belief that man can earn immortality through religious works. Hundreds of millions are deceived by it. But God in His great kindness has provided something that will remove the blinders. If you will allow it to, the moral Law will show you that a double-amputee has more chance of leaping across the widest part of the Grand Canyon, than you and I have of working our way to Heaven. If you want to live forever, simply repent, trust alone in Jesus, then relax. Rest in the Savior. He did it all on the cross: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
