Confess Christ With Your Mouth

What it really means to confess Christ with your mouth.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary: 10. For with the heart man believeth unto—justifying righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation—This confession of Christ's name, especially in times of persecution, and whenever obloquy is attached to the Christian profession, is an indispensable test of discipleship.
Keep in mind what it would have meant to confess Christ as Lord and Savior during His time on Earth and what happened to the Apostles. All but one were executed for their faith. Saying I believe, walking an aisle, repeating a prayer, or raising your hand is meaningless. Salvation is a gift from God, not something you do or earn. In fact in the time of Jesus if you did any of those in His name, it could have meant your death.

How many today would do such if they thought it meant their being beheaded, ran through with a spear or nailed to a wooden cross?
