>More From "A Lover’s Quarrel"

>The previous post had a quote from “A Lover’s Quarrel with the Evangelical Church” (and challenged folks to read the book even if it might make them nervous or elevate their blood pressure)…Here’s another quote from the book, but this is from R. C. Sproul:

“Everyone who has faith is called to profess faith, but not everybody who professes faith has faith. A lot of people, it seems to me, in the evangelical world, believe that if they have walked the walk, raised the hand, signed the card – that is, made some kind of methodological profession of faith – that they’re saved.”

The author, Warren Cole Smith, continues, “This statement is an affront to much of modern evangelicalism, but it should be familiar to anyone who knows the teachings of Jesus: “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 7.21)

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
