Right, Wally. Unfortunately, works religionists put the proverbial cart before the horse!

Thanks, Tom, and yes they do. I watch a lot of conversations about this, and folks make it far too complicated. Clearly we are saved completely by grace apart from works; just as clearly, works are expected from saved believers for God’s glory and only powered by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

Right. They will seemingly agree by saying, “Yes we must accept Christ as our Savior, but then…” It’s the “but then” that is the difference between being saved and lost.

There is also another,”but then,” and that is the polar opposite mindset that salvation is the end of things…those pesky antinomians.(Thanks to my friend Tom for that fine word LOL.)

Right about the other extreme, Wally. Between some recent readings from John MacArthur and our conversations (and maybe watching arch-example, Joseph Prince, a few times as I channel surfed) I think I’m pretty well versed in “antinomianism.” I picture myself being deep in the throes of Alzheimer’s someday but when somebody asks me about “antinomianism,” I’ll be able to roll it off my tongue like a sophomore seminarian thanks to my friend, Wally!
