Many religious orders hold on to it As a a one passage we of the Church of Christ know that the Bible does not contradict itself hence this passage must be harmonized with All other scriptures. Lets take a look at it. From the Start of the verse Down to the first j comma there is a a whosoever Beli Eveth in him should not perish a. This scripture does not say will not or 11 shall not perish of i have a headache and take an j asprin the ache should go away not definite but May j be. The greek Interlinear new testament George Ricker i Berry pad. Renders it a May not perish but May have eternal Faith wily is used but once in the new testament and that is in James 2 24 and it says a a not i by Faith it is often repeated that Abraham was s justified by Faith. However it was not by Faith a a Only. He had Active Faith one which moved him to obey. J James 2 21,22. The Bible teaches that Faith without i obedience will not please god. And is a dead Faith James j 2 17-24. Whether ifs obedience in Faith or confession j repentance or baptism All must be consummated in i obedience Luke 6 46. Abrahams Faith was an Active Faith for it moved him to leave All and go into the land that god would give to him. Also his Faith moved him to offer his son is amp acas a sacrifice to god As god had commanded him. Gen. 22 11-14 James 2 17-20. As Beautiful As the passage of John 3 16 is done to rest your salvation on it alone. Blend it in with other passages of scriptures that Are essential to one s salvation. And discover what god would have you do. No one will Ever reap eternal life by simply believing in Jesus Christ.
