Lost, but with Works

Matthew 7:21-23


The folks in Matthew 7:22,23 were lost, but cast out devils by the name (power and authority) of Jesus Christ. They did not use exorcism, chants, or incantations.  Because these lost people used the name of Christ, and Christ honored their requests, they believed they were saved.  They were trusting their works to get them to heaven, and not the pure blood Christ.
