 List of Scriptures that validate and do not validate your salvation -MacArthur


[b]List of Scriptures that validate and do not validate your salvation[/b]
[i]by John MacArthur[/i]


This is taken from John MacArthur's Study Bible. I originally got this from one of my sisters in Christ before I got the Study Bible. People who are not genuine believers can have what is on the first list. Genuine believers can have characteristics of the qualities on the first list as well. If you are saved, according to Scripture, you will definitely have what is on list number two. We need to examine ourselves daily.

"Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?..unless indeed you are disqualified." -- 2 Corinthians 13:5.


List 1 ( neither proves nor disproves one is saved):

1.Visible Morality (Matthew 19:16-21, Matthew 23:27)
2.Intellectual Knowledge of the Bible (Romans 1:21, Romans 2:17)
3.Religious Involvement (Matthew 25:1-10)
4.Active Ministry (Matthew 7:21-24)
5.Conviction of Sin (Acts 24:25)
6.Assurance (Matthew 23)
7.Time of Decision (Luke 8:13-14)

List number 2 (you are BORN AGAIN):

A. Love for God.
(Psalm 42:1, Psalm 73:25, Luke 10:27, Romans 8:7)

B. Repentance from Sin.
(Psalm 32:5, Proverbs 28:13, Romans 7:14, 2 Corinthians 7:10, 1 John 1:8-10)

C. Genuine Humility.
(Psalm 51:17, Matthew 5:1-12, James 4:6, 9)

D. Devotion to God's Glory.
(Psalm 105:3, Psalm 115:1, Isaiah 43:7, Isaiah 48:10, Jeremiah 9:23-24, 1 Corinthians 10:31)

E. Continual Prayer .
(Luke 18:1, Ephesians 6:18, Philippians 4:6, 1 Timothy 2:1-4, James 5:16-18)

[sidenote from Nicole.. (me). . please see this sermon about the Biblical way to pray ].

F. Self-less Love.
(1 John 2:9, 1 John 3:14, 1 John 4:7)

G. Separation from the World .
(1 Corinthians 2:12, James 4:4, 1 John 2:15-17, 1 John 5:5)

H. Spiritual Growth.
(Luke 8:15, John 15:1-6, Ephesians 4:12-16)

I. Obedient Living.
(Matthew 7:21, John 15:14, Romans 16:26, 1 Peter 1:2, 22, 1 John 2:3-5)

J. Hunger for God's Word.
(1 Peter 2:1-3)

K. Tranformation of Life !
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

Scriptural and very hard to argue with, though some will try.

When one's salvation is based on feelings, emotions, then that salvation has to be questioned.

As it is, scripture says we are to examine ourselves as to whether we are in the faith.

Let's pray that examination proves true.

God bless.

I actually presented this list to someone in my immediate fellowship who I thought was a bit fishy with regards to their testimony and its fruit.

The response wasn't pretty. :knockedout:

 Re:

I find this is a great list to go over with carnal believers or those that are "false converts." Praise God for the truth and men like this to bring it to us unashamedly.
