God says in the bible salvation is only through Jesus and God does not lie

The reason God won't go beyond his word the bible on salvationor any other issue, is because God is not a liar, so does not lie.  If God said salvation is only through repenting and believing in Jesus in the bible, and then went beyond the bible and allowed people to be saved some other way, then that would make God a liar. And we know God is no liar. God gave his written word to speak his truth and tell us how he operates. So people can't say, "God told me", when he didn't. It is a check on claims. Salvation through Jesus verses: Acts 4:12 "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" John 14:6 "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'" John 3:16–18 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life"

Killing Sin by Changing Our Heart

By Kirby Harris The Spirit really spoke to me today. Thought I would share it with you. We try and kill sin and the flesh by controlling and modifying our behavior, when that doesn't kill it. Our heart desires feed the flesh and our sin.  We need to let the Spirit change our heart, our desires by focusing on what Christ did for us and how we are only holy because of what he did, not what we do. Colossians 2:20-23: Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
