THE TRUTH IS — Preaching the Gospel is very important, but not for Eternal Salvation.
However it does tell us HOW we were Saved, and in so doing we are then Saved Timely from error and ignorance and knowledge, with such we can praise, honor and adore Jesus Christ. Solomon prophesied of such benefits in – Ecc. 12:9-11 – “And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs. The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd,” If you will read these above verses again, you will find clearly that they speak precise and details truth about the N.T. Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
