IS IT NOT PRESUMPTUOUS
TO SAY  YOU ARE SAVED?

Answer: Paul's reply to the most important of all questions was very explicit: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." He did not say, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will have a good chance of being saved"; but "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.

Many people say it is "great presumption" in anyone to "go to the length " of saying he knows that he is saved. They affirm that no one can be certain," and that all we can do is to have a "humble hope."

How different this is from the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles Paul says, "We are always confident" (II Cor. 5:6).

The Apostle John says, "I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His Name's sake" (I John 2:12).
"We know that we have passed from death unto life" (I John 3:14).

Every sinner who believes on the Lord Jesus is bound to believe that he is saved. It would indeed be "great presumption" in anyone to doubt the Word of the living God.

"He that believeth not God hath made Him a liar" (I John 5:10, 11), and he who believes on Jesus has the divine promise, thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31).
