A Solid Place to Stand: A Doctrinal Survey Of The Book Of Romans (33 of 42)
The Peril of Unbelief
Romans 10:16-21; 11:13-24
Introduction: Today were going to get back to the basics . . . I mean the real basics . . . Foundational basics.
If you were to boil the Christian life down to its most basic, essential, fundamental ingredients here is what it comes down to . . .
Belief . . . or . . . Unbelief.
Today I want to talk to you about "The Peril of Unbelief."
Would you be locating Romans chapter 10 in your Bibles, where we are going to see the Nation of Israel is a tragic and frightening illustration of . . .
"The Peril of Unbelief."
Belief and Unbelief are so basic to the Christian that they actually define the distinction between authentic Christians and non-Christians . . .
• In the Bible, Christians are referred to as "Believers" and . . .
• Non-Christians are referred to as "Unbelievers."
Think about it . . . The thing that will make the difference between heaven and hell for every person in this room and on this planet is simply this . . .
• Belief, or . . .
Acts 16:31 says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved."
Revelation 21:8 tells us "Unbelievers . . . shall have their part in the lake of fire and brimstone which is the second death."
The ultimate question for every person here today is simply this . . . "Are you truly a believer or an unbeliever?"
NOW . . . We are going to see from the Bible today that saving belief (the kind of belief the saves a person from eternal damnation and destruction) is more than just giving mental assent to the gospel, or nodding your head "yes" that you believe in God.
Text: James 2:19
When we talk about "Believers" and "Unbelievers" we are talking about something of far greater consequences and impact than merely talking about "atheists" and "non-atheists."
