VIII. MAIN BODY:

Romans 10:7 (Amplified Bible)

Or who will descend into the abyss? that is, to bring Christ up from the dead [as if we could be saved by our own efforts].

Romans 10:7 (New King James Version)

or, " 'Who will descend into the abyss?' " (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).

A. Who will descend into the abyss to bring CHRIST up from the dead?

"Or who will descend into the abyss? that is, to bring Christ up from the dead"

No creation of GOD can do this, even angels. What Apostle Paul is saying is that he wanted to confirm the mystery of salvation by faith to all humans, up to the extreme of Heaven and Hell. Salvation is not of works but by of faith. Simply presenting the gospel in it's purest form makes plain who is bound to go to heaven and bound to go to hell.

1 Corinthians 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of] the power of God.

It is made more simpler by the gospel actually, to those who will believe the LORD JESUS CHRIST of the gospel, the Center of the gospel, will go to heaven, and if you don't then you go to hell. It's as simple as that. Either black or white, but this wicked, perverted generation has made it more difficult for people to decide. Either you're male or female, but they made it, difficult, now you like a male, but you're a female. Disgusting, perverts, they made GOD's creation an abomination in GOD'S sight. It's either holy or evil, please stay within the vicinity of GOD'S love and creation for you to understand this. It's either heaven or hell, saved or not saved, believer or unbeliever, that's about it. It's that plain and simple.

B. As if we could be saved by our own efforts.

"[as if we could be saved by our own efforts]"

Romans 4:25 (Amplified Bible)

Who was betrayed and put to death because of our misdeeds and was raised to secure our justification (our acquittal), [making our account balance and absolving us from all guilt before God].
