Sent to heal the brokenhearted

The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed MeTo preach the gospel to the poor;He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captivesAnd recovery of sight to the blind,To set at liberty those who are oppressed (Luke 4:18)

JP: Blog post by Paul Fuller (former student at Central). It is better to have a false hope shattered that one can be healed by the Savior than to have a false hope and die in ones sins!

Approaching North: Is It Good to Shatter People’s Hope of Salvation?

Is it kind to shatter a person’s hope of salvation? Yes, because without scriptural grounds, it is nothing more than a false hope. A hope of acceptance by God based on such things as going forward in a meeting, praying a suggested prayer, imitating the experience of others, joining a church, attending many Christian meetings, being baptized, studying the Bible regularly, helping others, [being confirmed,] feeling good in a religious service or having a strong conviction that they are right with God is a hope not founded on biblical truths.
