[We are] not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. (Romans 1:16)

New Member / New Blog Link / Interesting Theological Question

by Antonio da Rosa

Hello, you couple of readers of Unashamed of Grace (all 2 of you). Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I want to introduce to you the newest member of the Unashamed of Grace team, David Wyatt. I have known him for about 5 or 6 years now, as he has been a regular contributor to the discussions on the Grace Evangelical Society's Chat Forum, where I have nearly 1,200 posts. He is not so controversial, as Rose is (lol, JK, Rose!). He is extremely thoughtful and encouraging. I am sure that he will do great balancing out Matthew's non-dispensational post-trib position (jab!), Jodie Sawyer's re-occuring hiatuses, Rose's pillow-padded power punches, and my myopic, bigoted, stubborn, unrelenting, and misogenist (jk!) forays into blogdom.

David, welcome to Unashamed of Grace! You may begin posting at any time, man!

As you can see, there is a new blog link on the right. Jeremy Myers, editor (among other things) at Grace Evangelical Society. He is my free grace anti-thesis. Please go look him up. The name of his ministry and blog is "TILL HE COMES".

Right now, he has an interesting theological question concerning the gospel. It is titled, "You be the judge". He tells a true story of a woman. He relates the details and asks, based upon the information, if you would consider her saved through the lenses of your theological/soteriological grid. It can be a very intersting discussion if you go over and participate.

His link is here on the right, click on it and answer his question: You be the judge!

xaris soi kai eirene,

Antonio da Rosa

  • I cannot post on that blog, not having an account.

    It would appear that his hypothetical woman (seems familiar..) is a redeemed person.

  • Antonio,
    That is one of my favorite blog posts by you ever! What colorful word pictures you use when clowning around! (although you do do this when being serious, too, once in a while - I remeber the pastrami sandwich) :~)

    "Rose's pillow-padded power punches"

    "Matthew's non-dispensational post-trib position "

    "my myopic, bigoted, stubborn, unrelenting, and misogenist forays into blogdom."

    hahahahahaha

  • Antonio,

    Thanks for the link! I've added two of your blogs to my page as well. So far, you're the only links I've got! I really like your post on Checklist Evangelism, and will recommend it to Bob as a Newsletter article. We'll see what happens.

    BTW, excellent comment on my blog about the woman.

    And Dyspraxic Fundamentalist, I agree with you that I think the woman I talk about is redeemed, but she is not hypothetical. She is a real person who has the beliefs I list. If you wanted to weigh in, you can register in one quick step by following this link. Here on blogger, you try to limit spam with the "Captcha." On Wordpress, I try to limit spam by asking people to register.

    And David...I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

  • Matthew,
    My post at that site.........

    No. Blending Christianity with false Gods and false religions does not provide salvation. Romans 8 tells us that Christians are indwelt by God the Holy Spirit and I am certain that the Holy Spirit brings all regenerate Christians to understand that syncretism is no more valid today than it was in the time of Elijah. “1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.

    Adding a false religion and a false God to faith in Christ is no different than adding works to faith in Christ. Why would anyone believe that faith plus works does not save but assert that faith plus false religion and false Gods is OK.

    Matthew, if you believe that faith in Christ plus false Gods and religion is a saving propostition, why do you have a problem with faith plus works?

  • Bro. Jim,

    I am with BBN. What a phenomenal ministry, but I do not speak on the air anymore. I am now with the BBN Bible Institute, a free online Bible Institute with BBN & also BBN Chat, an online evangelistic chat ministry. Are you a BBN listener?

    Bro. Jeremy,

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Jazzycat, you have a point.

  • Jazzycat, if one believes that one must do works to be saved, then what has denied the sufficency of Christ's work and one has not believed that He is the guarantor of eternal life. There is no saving faith.

    However, if a person believes a few heresies that do not inpinge on the free offer of eternal life, it does not necessarilly negate their faith in Christ for His free gift.

    We are not saved through doctrinal knowledge. We are saved by appropriating the free gift of eternal life in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    God Bless

    Matthew

  • Matthew,
    The person in question believes:
    (1) The Trinity is fiction.
    (2) There is only one God, Allah the same as the Muslims worship.
    (3) The Koran is on equal footing with the Bible
    (3) Humans are divine like Jesus, but to a lesser degree because humans sin.

    The Jesus such a person has put her faith in is not the Jesus of the Bible. To assert such a person is saved and regenerated is to make a mockery out of the ministry of the Holy Spirit and insults the holiness of the true God of the Bible. This God as you know does not answer to the name Allah.

  • Jazzycat, how many errors can one make about the person of Christ before they believe in a different Jesus to the one in the Bible?

    Did John F MacArthur believe in a 'different Jesus' when he denied the eternal sonship of Christ?

    OKay, maybe that is a minor error.

    How about the Taylorite Exclusives? They believe in the Trinity and the deity of our Lord, but they deny that He has a human soul, as the Apollinarians did. Do they believe in a 'different Jesus?'

  • Hi David, I listen to BBN on occassion and remember hearing you speak before the prayer time.

    I have enjoyed a lot of programs thanks to the internet as I live in Canada far from the nearest signal.

    God bless,
    Jim
