LISTEN: YOUR SALVATION WITHOUT RESTITUTION IS A JOKE!
If a man abandons his wife with children and moves with a strange woman, after he is saved in Christ, is he not going to detach himself from the strange woman and move back to his family? If your neighbor steals your phone, and you know but just keep quiet, and later the neighbor becomes saved in Jesus and comes to preach to you while still using the phone he steals from you, are you going to accept his faith as genuine? If after you retired at the age of 60, and you use your retirement money to buy a land, then a dubious man with his influence, displaces you of your piece of land and claims it for himself, then later he become born again and still claim your land for himself, will you believe his salvation in Christ to be real?
Though even if you do not believe the teaching of restitution, but I’m sure you can’t believe a husband who abandons his wife and children and still living with a strange lady is truly saved; you will not take a neighbor who stole your phone and still using it after he claims to be saved serious; you will not listen to sermon of a person who hijacked your landed property and refuse to return it after he said he has been born again; you will see such people’s salvation as a joke, so also is your salvation without restitution is a joke.
