Quotes (712)

A W Pink Christendom has not fallen into its present condition all of a sudden; rather its present state is the outcome of a long and steady deterioration. The deadly poison of error was introduced here a little, there a little, with the quantity increased as less opposition came against it. As the acquiring of “converts” absorbed more and more of the attention and strength of the Church, the standard of doctrine lowered, sentiment displaced convictions, and fleshly methods were introduced. In a comparatively short time many of those sent out to “the foreign field” were rank Arminians, preaching “another gospel.” This reacted upon the homeland, and soon the interpretations of Scripture given out from the pulpits moved into line with the “new spirit” which had captivated Christendom.

- A.W. Pink

1886 – 1952

  1. “Arminians, preaching “another gospel.” ”

    This, I find, is an idea most people in the church have either never learned or have forgotten. Arminianism – by any name or style, is heresy; the result of the creature trying to justify himself. This is a stench to almighty God.

  2. Manfred; Even though I agree with you (and Pink), couldn’t arminians say the same of the “calvinistic gospel”?

    Having said that, the strength of seeing in print;

    “In a comparatively short time many of those sent out to “the foreign field” were rank Arminians, preaching “another gospel.””

    was shocking in its truth!… “another gospel” wow, the Apostle Paul had NO patience for these preachers and we seem to let them preach in our churches!

    Thanks Defcon for a great blog!

  3. Terry,

    There’s no limit to what Arminians might say. The Truth is not in the Arminian doctrine, no matter what its defenders proclaim. :-)
