In an appropriate follow-up from yesterday’s post, Testimony of Regeneration, Wretched provides the below excerpt from Paul Washer regarding the view that being morally upright saves a person. Changed behavior saves no one. It is only the grace of God, by the new birth, through repentance grounded in godly sorrow and faith alone in Jesus […]

Testimony of Regeneration

February 22, 2012


One of the blessings that comes with posting articles to the internet is the unknown impact they will have in the future. Last week I learned that Amy Spreeman from Stand Up for the Truth had republished my February 2011 article titled, People Who Will Not Go to Heaven. The reposted article generated some traffic […]

Denver Bronco’s quarterback Tim Tebow has been in the news a whole lot lately.  Since I don’t follow the NFL very much anymore, the only thing I really know about him is what I pick up in various news stories, whether they are condemning Tebow for so actively and publicly sharing his faith, or giving […]

The Lordship Salvation Controversy

September 12, 2011


As a new contributor for Christian Research Network, this article was originally posted at CRN.  Lordship salvation continues to be a controversial topic in evangelicalism. The battleground tends to take place mostly, it seems, in dispensational circles where easy-believism or “free grace” theology has firmly taken root. Opponents range from those who believe the “sole […]

The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. – Matthew 13:45-46 “I want this pearl. How much is it?” “Well,” the seller says, “it’s very expensive.” “But, how much?” we ask. “Well, […]

Comments Off on What Is Wrong with NON-Lordship Salvation? – Part 5

Had it been possible for you to have had salvation without sanctification, it would have been a curse to you instead of a blessing. If such a thing were possible, I cannot conceive of a more lamentable condition than for a man to have the happiness of salvation without the holiness of it; happily, it […]
