Caller: How can people believe they can “accept” Christ if they are dead, spiritually dead?
Mr. C.: They can believe it because that is the kind of salvation program they wish to have. The idea that you have to “accept” Christ to be saved is not found in the Bible. The first principle that is necessary to follow through on that idea is that Christ went to the cross to pay for the sins of every human being, and that is fallacious; it is totally incorrect. The Bible does not teach that, but they must have that doctrine because they say that Christ has done His part, He has paid for your sins, but now it is up to you to accept it. Frankly, it is totally faulty; it is a salvation program that will not get you into heaven; it is man’s kind of salvation which is why in those same churches people fall away all the time. They “accept” Christ and then they fall away; they “accept” Christ and then they fall away.
Caller: I have heard you say that if we seek the Lord with all our heart, we will find Him, but how can we seek Him or do anything if we are spiritually dead?
Mr. C.: The transition from death to life does not happen instantly. At the moment of salvation, we receive our new resurrected souls and eternal life, and we will never fall away. But prior to the moment of salvation, God can be drawing us. A key verse is John 6:44:
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
We tie this verse together with Philippians 2:13:
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Then God gives us an illustration of the Roman centurion who was a devout man long before he was saved; he gave alms, prayed to God, and feared God. We read in Acts 10:1-2:
There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.
This language might normally be ascribed to someone who had become saved, but he definitely was not saved. God was drawing him; God was doing His will in this man’s life before he was born again. In the case of this man, we know the exact moment he became saved, which was when Peter came to him with the Gospel. There are people God is drawing, and they begin to turn away from their sins, and they increasingly want to obey God; a fear of God is in their soul. They beseech the Lord with all their heart and ask for God’s mercy. If this happens, it is only because God is working in their lives. They can take no credit for any of it. These things in themselves will not save them; these are not the means by which God saves them. These are simply indicators that God might be drawing them. The faith of Christ Himself saves us.
Caller: I have a lot of loved ones in the charismatic movement, and I find it hard to accept the idea that they are not saved because I love them so much. Is that what you teach? Only God knows who is saved.
Mr. C.: God gives us indicators, of course. Consider ancient national Israel where there were a lot of devout and wonderful people, as for example, when they were in the wilderness, but they perished because of unbelief. This is true of any time in history; many people who are dead in their sins are very lovely people, and they think that all is well. Remember the warning Jesus gives in Matthew 7:21-23:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
That is ominous! That is scary! The Bible says in Revelation 22 that if we add to the words of the prophecy of this book, God will add to him the plagues written herein. And so, by God’s definition, they are still subject to the plagues written in the Bible, that is, the wrath of God. We cannot turn them around; only God can turn them around. Wonderfully, we can still pray for them.

The translator is a good one, he knows the language only that he uses a little bit of his dialect in very few places (which is pardonable) as you can see in the red notes I made but generally he’s a good Igbo translator.

NEXT CALLER: I Corinthians Chapter 12 and Chapter 14 seem to say that speaking in tongues is a gift from God. Why do you say that we should not speak in tongues? God does not change.
Mr. C.: The Bible was written by God in such a way that you can find some verses that seem to teach or back up almost anything you want to believe. You can say, “What I believe is true because the Bible says so; listen to these verses.” This is the reason why people believe they have found the truth in sects, cults, and false gospels, which are far from the truth.
The Biblical rule is that we must test our conclusions against the whole Bible.
I Corinthians Chapter 12 and Chapter 14 tell us that in the church in Corinth, at that time, there was a phenomenon called “speaking in tongues.” Also, at that time, certain individuals received revelations from God in dreams and visions. For example, the Apostle John received a series of visions that became the Book of Revelation in the Bible. When those in the church at Corinth spoke in a tongue, in a language they did not understand, which was frequently in the form of a prayer, God qualified others in the congregation to interpret so that the message would edify the congregation. That is the nature of a revelation from God.
A few decades later, God came to the last chapter of the Bible, and near the end of the chapter, He says, and this is Revelation 22, verses 18 and 19:
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
In this statement, God indicates that there will be no more revelation from Him, no more visions, no more angel visitations, no more dreams, no more voices, and no more messages in tongues from God. That has all come to an end. So, if we want to know God’s will, we read the Bible; we have the whole Bible.
Today, because of man’s rebellion against God, and because man wants his own kind of gospel, some individuals read I Corinthians 12 and I Corinthians 14, and they say, “That is what I want!” They are convinced that God will accommodate them, but the fact is that God will not accommodate them. God will not violate His own rules.
If there is a supernatural accommodation, it is from Satan. Satan comes as an angel of light. It is a very dangerous business to want to speak in a tongue. It is a violation of the Word of God because you are trying to add to the words of this prophecy, and God says His plagues are still on you. You are still subject to judgment day.
You are listening to what your church teaches. You are reading I Corinthians 12 and 14, but you are not reading the whole Bible. When you read I Corinthians 12 and 14 alone and not the rest of the Bible, it looks like speaking in tongues could be for today. When you read these chapters in the light of the whole Bible, then you know it is not for today.
It is not accidental that wherever you find an interest in speaking in tongues, normally, you find an intense interest in signs and wonders and miracles. In the Bible, every citation or reference to signs and wonders near the end of time, where we are, is to Satanic activity. We read in Matthew 24:24:
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
This emphasizes the fact that you have to watch out and not get involved with that kind of activity. You might be convinced that speaking in tongues is from God, but if you read the whole Bible, and read it carefully, you will know that it is not from God; it is not the Gospel of Christ.

This is an excellent translation. The translator adhered to the original English text on a sentence by sentence basis without any additions, changes nor deletions, while maintaining the original meaning and good quality Igbo language. The translator did not summarize or paraphrase the English text. The translator did not add further explanation beyond what is in the original English text. It does read like natural text. There were no spelling errors or grammatical errors. I noted my opinion in bold italics within the text.
