Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

What Is Not Christian, Part 9
Escaping Damnation

In the Final Judgment of God, escaping eternal damnation will not be the Christian thing to do for Christianity will save no one in the day of God's wrath. Salvation is of God alone, and it can be accomplished only by walking in the Spirit instead of "in the flesh". Only those who are led by the Spirit of God are truly the children of God (Rom. 8:14). This means that being led by the Spirit, too, is not a Christian thing to do because every one who is led by the Spirit, is led by the Spirit out of Christianity.

To escape the damnation of God in the Final Judgment, one will have to please God by living a life of holiness (Heb. 12:14), and nothing but the holy Ghost enables one to do that. There is nothing on earth holy but by the holy Ghost – no building, no person, no city, no country – nothing! Only where the holy Ghost dwells is holy, and it dwells only in the hearts of God's people.

We are told that "God dwells not in temples made by hands"; so we conclude that no earthly building for worship is holy. We are also told that God's glory departed from Israel; so we conclude that the land of Canaan is no longer holy land, nor the city of Jerusalem, nor even the Jews who rejected their Messiah. Christianity claims to have succeeded Israel as the nation of God, but I do not believe it. I believe that Christianity is a fraud and that the true "Israel of God" is comprised of those people who are baptized with the holy ghost, with the evidence of "stammering lips" or speaking in tongues. Most of those people are within the walls of Christianity, trusting citizenship in that religion to save them, but it will not. Only the holy Ghost they have received from God will save them.

There is no hope of salvation in being either a Jew or a Muslim or a Christian. Escaping the damnation of God is not only not the Christian thing to do but it is also not the Muslim thing to do, nor yet is it the Jewish thing to do. Salvation is of God, who will save only those who submit to the one He has chosen and anoint as both Lord and Christ: Jesus of Nazareth.

And genuine submission to Jesus is not the Christian thing to do.
