Many who take the sacraments religiously will go to hell

There are many unbelievers today who think that they are true Christians because they regularly take communion and were baptized in the church. But they do not have real faith in Christ and have not repented of their sins. They are children of the devil and not of God.

Do not in anyway trust your baptism as proof that you are saved: Jesus Himself said that those who do not believe will not be saved even if they are baptized (Mark 16:16). The Apostle Peter once told a baptized church-member that he had “neither part nor portion” of the kingdom of God (Acts 8:22). He told this baptized church member to “Repent therefore of this your wickedness and pray if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.” This man could not trust in his baptism to save him; his heart was still not right with God.

There are many people who have been baptized and take communion who go to hell because they refuse to trust and obey Jesus Christ. If you still think that these rituals will automatically turn you into a true Christian, read these strong words by the Apostle Paul:

For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea; and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and all ate the same spiritual food; and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was[a]Christ. Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for they were laid low in the wilderness. (I Corinthians 10:1-5)

What Paul is talking about is his Jewish ancestors who followed Moses in the Sinai wilderness three thousand years ago. They were “baptized” in the sense that they passed through the Red Sea under God’s protection. They witnessed the special presence of God in the holy Cloud that hovered in front of them. They ate the same spiritual food, that is the manna that God miraculously rained down from heaven for them. They also drank the spiritual water that came from the rock which was a picture of Christ. The food they ate was not normal food. They witnessed impressive miracles the like of which later generations have never seen. And yet, they were still not true believers. God was not well pleased with most of them; they died in the wilderness as punishment from God. Do you think that you are any better than them just because you have eaten communion and been baptized by a priest? God is not pleased with you either if you have not surrendered your heart to God. Your baptism is an abomination and a farce if it is not accompanied by faith.
