"Paul a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the Truth which is after godliness; in hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifest his word through preaching...(Titus 1:1-3)
We must see the fundamental truth in this passage. First, all must relate to God by faith or not at all. No one may use statues, pictures, visions or beads which false religions promote, "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate." (Titus 1:16)
So as one can see by this verse one may very well have good intentions, but before God, works or worship may be an abomination to him.
Second, how is faith obtained? I have heard it may come through visions, tongues, plays, priest, prayer, or singing No doubt a lot of religious people have received their faith in this manner but God's elect have received faith through the preaching of God's word. "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.'' (Rom. 10:17)...it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. (1 Cor. 1:21) I am very aware of the popularity in going to a church that says faith, belief, and salvation is received from Baptism, sacraments, tongues, plays, or dramas. Therefore, I must preach the fundamentals of scripture. Relate to God by faith, that is to say, faith in His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, through this, one will find the sure hope of eternal life.
