Give Me That Old Time Religion


WillWorkForSalvation I have a friend that would love this sign. She is a member of the restored Church of God and they love to work out their salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9 says that by Grace you have been saved through faith and not of yourselves. It is a gift of God not of works lest anyone should boast. I wonder what my friend thinks a gift is? Does she have to earn a gift? I think not. I have a chart that measures the old time religion of the restored Church of God in contrast to the body of Christ.Religion-vs-gospel for the life of me, I don’t know why my friend prefers the old time religion? The Book of Mormon says that you are saved by grace through faith and then adds, plus all that you can do. I wonder if the restored Church of God is an offshoot of Mormonism?
