(Romans 10:9-10)
George Whitefield, the great British evangelist, was speaking to a man about his soul. He asked the man,
“Sir, what do you believe?”
“I believe what my church believes,” the man replied respectfully.
“And what does your church believe?”
“The same thing I believe.”
“And what do both of you believe?” the preacher enquired again.
“We both believe the same thing,” was the only reply he could get.
A man is not saved by assenting to a church creed. He is saved by trusting Jesus Christ and bearing witness to his faith.
