The Prodigal Son

The parable of the prodigal son is a familiar one, but many people have false concepts or misunderstandings about its message.  The story tells of a son who, after demanding his share of the estate from his father, left for a different country and took up an extravagant and wasteful lifestyle.  After spending his fortune, and finding himself hungry, he returns home to apologize to and serve his father, who welcomes him with open arms.

What Difference Does It Make?

The devil doesn’t care if you bite into the false gospel which
comes from Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses or
Calvinism! All he is trying to do is destroy you spiritually any
way he can. The paradise promises are held out only for the
overcomers. They alone are the ones who know the one real gospel
and implement it into their lives. To be deceived by a false
teacher or false prophet (who will point you in a different
direction from a submissive and enduring faith in Jesus as being
vital for final salvation) is to be lethally misled. Enduring to
the end for salvation (Matt. 10:22) is just as important as getting
born again and becoming a new creation in Christ. Learn the Bible
truth on this subject especially. Don’t take a chance. The stakes
could not be higher, since it is your own soul and your eternity,
which is on the line.
