Works Righteousness

The gentleman in the black is a Roman Catholic. Andre was able to point out the fallacies of Rome’s “works righteousness” system; the righteousness of Christ distributed through the Roman Catholic Church is a false gospel. And that the work of Christ is a finished work. Went through Gal. 2:16-21 to prove his point.

Gal 2:16-21 (ESV) “yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.

17 But if, in our endeavor to be justified in Christ, we too were found to be sinners, is Christ then a servant of sin? Certainly not! 18 For if I rebuild what I tore down, I prove myself to be a transgressor. 19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.”

Pray for the young man in the picture. His name is Mohammed, a college student. He grew up in a Muslim home and has some Muslim beliefs. As we witnessed to him, he had many questions. His words to me were, “I just want to know the truth.” I shared some scriptures with him and gave him my phone number so we could meet and talk later when he had time. I believe there are many college students, like Mohammed, who want to know the truth! That is why our mission as campus leaders in CCN is critical.

Pray for everyone that Jenifer and Gene have been sharing the gospel with at the University of Pittsburgh. We have a few ongoing conversations going with a couple of Muslims and a Sikh.

Pray for the Bible Study that is going strong in NC. The students are learning about Creation Science and having a Godly character.

Pray  for everyone that Tom shared the gospel with at the Texas State Capital.
