Are You Saved Or Self-Deceived?

The Most Important Question We Must Each Answer

John MacArthur

Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


There is no greater risk to the people of our time than the risk of self-deceit as to whether or not a man indeed knows God. Almost every person calling himself a Christian has learnt enough from the Bible that they pass themselves off as Christians. Their Christianity has not barred them from adultery, fornication, stealing or covetousness or lying: but they comfort themselves in their Christianity all the same! Some secretly or openly wish or pray for death on their enemies. Some are pastors or bishops or high church officers but they know they are in it for the money, and, yet, they believe they are Christians!

We now have people who never knew what godly sorrow for sin meant parading themselves as Christians!

The Winners Chapel aka Living Faith Church, the Catholic Church, the Love World Church aka Christ Embassy and thousands of similar Devil’s enterprises have taught them that repentance for sins is no longer a necessary criterion for God’s forgiveness. So we now have people all over the place styling themselves Christian without a foggiest idea of what it means to be a child of God!
