Assumptions In The Body Of Christ

The Wrong Assumptions Vs The Right Assumptions

Assumptions are important.
But of course the right assumptions help us. And the wrong assumptions lead us into trouble.
We assume the sky is blue.
That water is wet.
That fire is hot.
That the winter is colder than summer.

Assumptions are important.

But the question is, what do we assume about God?
That He has a long, white beard?
That He sits on a throne?
That He gets angry when things go wrong?

Life is full of assumptions that are flat out wrong. Misleading. Confusing.

If we assume that Paul is the apostle of the nations… that he was given the evangel of the uncircumcision… that his message is unique and special and FOR US TODAY…
…so today’s question: What does Paul assume about God?

For the moment, I want to point to two things—two assumptions in Paul’s writings.

And they both begin with this unique phrase:

“This is a faithful saying…”

I TIMOTHY 1:15 Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all welcome, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, foremost of whom am I.

I TIMOTHY 4:9 Faithful is the saying and worthy of all welcome (10)… (for for this are we toiling and being reproached), that we rely on the living God, Who is the Saviour of all mankind, especially of believers.

Two Amazing Assumptions:

  1. Christ came into the world to save sinners.
  2. God is the savior of all mankind.

If you read the Bible… and especially Paul’s letters with these two assumptions, you’ll have a better idea of God’s purpose and plan.

Christ did not come into the world to TRY to save sinners, but to indeed… SAVE THEM.

And God is not the POTENTIAL Savior of all mankind… but He is indeed THE SAVIOR of all mankind.


The assumptions of the “christian” religion is that man has a “freewill” and God merely wants to save all, but it’s not not possible… and Christ came into the world to save sinners, but He must factor in man’s freewill.

Yikes. Bad assumptions. Especially considering “freewill” is a man-made idea and cannot be supported in the scriptures.

Check your assumptions.
Water is wet.
God is the savior of all.
Grace to you.
