<<When I was saved I didn't know anything about what the Bible taught about anything. I had heard about a person named Jesus and how he died on the cross but I didn't what he really died for. The preacher asked me if I wanted to be saved and I told him I did but I didn't know how to be saved. He told me to ask God to save me. He didn't mention Jesus' name at all. I asked God to save me and I was saved experimentally. I didn't know anything about how God saved a person before that.>>

Obviously, you were not saved then, and you are not saved now. You do not believe that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16). You do not believe that those who do not believe the gospel are lost (Mark 16:16). You do not believe that those who are ignorant of the righteousness of God revealed in the gospel are lost (Romans 10:3). Your so-called "experimental" salvation was, and is, a lie of the devil. In your "experimental" salvation, you didn't even know what Jesus Christ died for. The atonement is at the very heart of the gospel. No atonement, no gospel. Yet you were ignorant of the atonement. You didn't even know the person and work of Jesus, and yet you claim you were saved. You are deceived. What's worse, you're a preacher, meaning that you are also a deceiver. If you would like to know the gospel, please read the series of sermons on the gospel at www.outsidethecamp.org/sermons.htm . Perhaps God will use this truth to open your eyes.
