Quotes (942)

How is it that the Gospel can move one man to wade through an army of opposition to publicly identify with Christ in a deadly winter baptism, and yet in another man who confesses the same Gospel, it has no power to make even the most insignificant changes in his life? When will the church in the West regain the fundamental biblical truth that faith is evidenced by works; that a tree is known by its fruit; and that not everyone who confesses ‘Lord, Lord’ in the comfortable confines of Western evangelicalism will enter the kingdom of heaven?

  1. Because, as brother Paul has pointed out on the past, people out faith in their faith and not in Jesus. Relying upon a memory and not a pattern of life is exhausting and often wrought with the very legalism that person claims to abhor.

    Luke 7:47 “Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little”.

    We cannot see the depths of our sins as we ought. As it is, we seem to think, we have no need of nothing, as the Laodicean church in the book of Revelation was told. It is, because we have so much, that it blinds us to our own wretchedness and depravity.

    We live as we love. And if we do not love much, it will show.

    I’d highly recommend Mr. Washer’s 121 minute sermon entitled “10 Indictments Against the Modern Church.” Compelling, convicting, and correct.

    I think that there is much of the gospel that makes sense through the ” lens” of election , and the question posed by Paul Washers is one example. The gospel has the power to change the life of the predestined man , as for the man who is left to wallow in his sin , there is no change.
