There appears to be much confusion in the world of Christianity. Since I joined into the fray, I've heard people complain about other Christians and churches being too strict, too modern, too lenient, too tough, too pansy, or a zillion other "too" problems. I've heard one church teacher comment how most in his day and time became believers out of fear - they were afraid of hell. Is that what saves someone? Fear? Does fear of hell honestly spawn love and belief? I've heard others not accept salvation testimonies because the testifier couldn't name an exact time and place. Some people relax a little on this issue and say one can still be saved provided that person recalls a general date. Those professing themselves to be Christians often can't even agree on how salvation is obtained! How can the supposed saved apply Christian doctrine to their lives or teach it to others if the very qualifier of Christianity STILL isn't known?! It's amazing that this far into history, the plain truth still isn't very plain to plain old people. Can anyone explain why the issue has become so confused? Was it ever clear after physical efforts were no longer required?
