Sin, the Gospel and Grace

Today we’re asking you to take your focus off of the usual “discernment” topics we usually talk about here at Stand Up For The Truth, and grab your Bible. In the Book of James, Jesus’ brother says in James 2:19: “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.” (NLT)

We’re asking this question: What is the difference between how the demons know who Jesus is, and the true saving faith that regenerated Christians have?    We’re going to reference this now-famous and controversial sermon Pastor Paul Washer shared with youth a few years back.

    The difference is new birth, we must be "born again."

    Deomons know in their heads – not in their hearts who Jesus is and they tremble – unlike the vast majority of those in the church today.

    Head knowledge versus heart knowledge – the saved versus the lost.

    Paul Washer' message is one of the best I have heard – wish more pastors would speak truth instead of goody goo that leaves the listener lifeless, listless and lost.

      Indeed. The greek word for "Believe in Jesus" are improperly translated. it is actually believe ON Jesus. The word Believe is used as a trusting, or putting faith in type of believe.

      The verse for the Demons is a different greek word for head knowledge.

      Indeed!

      I believe the difference between how we know the Lord and how they know Him is in that we have been born of Him and love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength; that we now have fellowship with Him in the Light, and we know Him because He is our Shepherd!

    True, saving faith is taught by Jim McClarty at http://youtu.be/o3dodm97SY4

    This short video goes into the Greek grammar construction of the sentence [verses from Ephesians 2:8 {and 9}.

    This is one thing I ask those who profess to believe in Jesus, 'even the demons believe, how will God distinguish you from a demon?' Trusting fully in Christ for the redemption of one's soul is definitely a faith no man can possess apart from being given the ability to do so.
