A man with valuable possessions but without understanding
Is like the animals that perish (Psalm 4:11)
The understanding spoken of here has to do with the understanding of God and His ways set forth in the Bible.
Have you such understanding? If not, you first need to understand the way of salvation. Without that understanding it is impossible to understand the rest of God’s ways.
You ask, “How, then, can I be saved?”
By faith in the Gospel (good news) that Jesus Christ died and rose again in the place of guilty sinners who would believe that fact. Have you ever done do? If you need more information, see your pastor. If he can’t help, please write for more information.
