A Daily Study in the Scriptures with Pastor Ray Viola

Weekdays at 6:30 PM on WZXV - The Word

Not Law, Not Legalism, But Lord

Something in our self-righteous flesh convinces us that salvation is earned by good conduct, or by observing religious practices like keeping ‘holy days’ or other rituals. Grace and human effort do not provide forgiveness of sin. Salvation is not the result of the law...

Who is Right?

Accept the fact that believers do indeed disagree and have different opinions on non-salvation, day-to-day practical matters. Pray that those differences will not divide you. Pray that God would allow you to see the opposite view and not interpret it as them rejecting you.
