A business group holds weekly seminars. They have a Sunday morning devotional, using Romans Chp.10 vs 9-13,and a lot of people get saved. Is this the real salvation message?
In Romans 10:9,10 there are two common errors in presentation. Confess Jesus as Lord means to acknowledge His deity and not make Him Lord over your life which would make ‘works’ a necessary part of salvation. Secondly, we are not saved by our public confession. But, our confession is our witness to the salvation that we receive at the moment of belief. Verse 10 tells us that we ‘believe unto righteousness’. I do not normally use this passage in evangelism because of the confusion and conflict with many presenting the wrong meaning.
