Burning Up the Internet

I strongly encourage you to check out Pyromaniacs this week.
But the idea of "saving faith" apart from good works, is ridiculous. The saved man is not a perfect man; but his heart's desire is to become perfect, he is always panting after perfection, and the day will come when he will be perfected, after the image of his once crucified and now glorified Savior, in knowledge and true holiness.
This quote, from CH Spurgeon really details the other part you should check out...

Phil wrote an article entitled Why the Lordship Debate Died. Naively, I thought this debate had died a long time ago, but lately, I've been hearing some scary and Biblically twisted statements that seem to be trying to resurrect the faulty "Free Grace" perspective. I invite you to read the article, but more importantly, read the comments. This is too important a conversation to miss out on.

(However, give yourself some time...it's up to 410 comments now!)

    I have been reading some Brethren history recently, and am intrigued that Alexander Mack clearly espoused Lordship Salvation in his tract, "Rites and Ordinances" published around 1710. He evidently caused a little stir with the area Lutherans over his rejection of what we call "free grace".

    i'd be interested in exploring the words of Mack as well....i didn't know there were any that were published.
