The Bible says “with the heart one believes…

The Bible says, “with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” That is two things, not one. The first is made with the heart and the second is made with the mouth. Where does that leave the “faith only” folks? It leaves them begging. The next verse continues, “for the scriptures says, whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” In other words, believing involves more than one’s mental or heart choice, it also involves confessing. Confession is part of “believe and you will be saved.” But not only that, a verse or two later, we learn “calling on the Lord” is also involved. Thus, faith involves more than just “faith alone”; it involves actions that must follow is salvation is to be realized. This is Just-A-Minute.
