Bible Study Outlines

Volume 3, Lesson 9
by C.I. Scofield

Believers and Unbelievers

  1. The Believer
    1. Is saved
    2. Is dead unto sin
    3. Is a child of God
    4. Is nigh to God
    5. Is sure of heaven
    6. Waits for Christ and glory
    7. Has God's favor
  2. The unbeliever
    1. Is lost
    2. Is dead in sin
    3. Is a child of Satan
    4. Is far from God
    5. Is sure of hell
    6. Waits for death and judgment
    7. Is under God's wrath
      • John 3:36 - "The wrath of God abideth upon him"
      • Romans 1:18 - "The wrath of God is revealed... against all ungodliness"

      Note carefully the contrast between the blessedness of the believer in Ephesians 2:4-10, and the wretchedness of the unbeliever in Ephesians 2:1-3,12.

      In which of these classes are you? The one certain thing is that you are in one of them: "He that believeth... and he that believeth not" (John 3:18). These, and only these, make up the host of all who are living now or have ever lived. There is no third class of the "pretty good" or of the "partly saved." You are a child of God or a child of the devil.
