Well, ok. Perhaps I was making a few assumptions and reading past what he was saying. When I heard the man I combined with what he saying the notion of faith alone ([i:39nrpp1z]sola fide[/i:39nrpp1z]) which basically says that you don’t have to do anything but believe in Jesus and you will be saved. And it goes further to reject the notion of doing “good works” (see my article on good works[/url:39nrpp1z]) because of their misconception of what the Bible actually says about good works.
But it doesn’t stop there. It’s that nothing can take that salvation away once you have “asked Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior” – not even murder, lying, adultery…[b:39nrpp1z]nothing[/b:39nrpp1z]. It doesn’t matter what sin you do after you are “saved”, Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary takes care of it. There is no penance you have to pay. Now to me this is ridiculous!
So, combining all these things I already know about the preacher’s theology, when I hear the words that we have to do nothing to be in this covenant I think what I thought in the first post. That is where I am coming from. ” title=”Smile” />
However, Pam, I think you do bring up a good point. I wish I had a chance to re-watch that tv show, but I guess I won’t know for sure. Maybe if I watch more of his shows I will be able to gather from it what he really meant.
