Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. I just came across this verse here and somehow it's simply so frustrating. Some christians claim that you can use these promises and get your family saved. They even make it look as if it's absolutely sure. All you have to do is stand on the promises and pray the right prayers and then they will be saved. But others say that this verse means something totally different and that they are using it out of context. It's simply always the same. Some christians say this and others say something else. How can you have faith in something when you don't even know what it means? What if this verse really means that you can get your whole family saved and Satan laughs about the christians which say that it means something else? What if this is his strategy? Simply always saying: "Nah, this means something totally different, it doesn't mean that you can get your whole family saved." What if this is his strategy? Always coming like a grinch and planting doubts about what a verse really means under the cover of being "accurate" or "scriptural"? What if this is his tactic? Doing as if he wants to help us "understand" what the bible "really" means and the truth is that he simply destroys all promises and says "No, this means this and that." I mean isn't it exactly this way? No matter which promise you take wether it is Isaiah 53:5 or this one here it's always the same. Some christians say it means what it says while others say: "Nah, it means something different." And then you stand there looking pretty dumb.
