“We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.”
There are a lot of things people believe the Bible says that it actually doesn’t. For instance, people think they’re quoting the Bible when they say, “Money is the root of all evil.”
Actually, the Bible doesn’t say that. Here’s what it does say: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows” (1 Timothy 6:10 NKJV).
Here’s another one: “God helps those who help themselves.” Not only is this falsely attributed to the Bible, but it’s also not biblical. The truth is that God helps those who can’t help themselves. To put it another way, God helps the helpless.
