  • What is Easy Believism?

    04/16/2010 10:29:19 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 89 replies · 1,042+ views
    "Easy Believism" is the idea that having a mental belief in Jesus Christ is the same as obtaining salvation. In other words, this false doctrine teaches that people only need to believe correct doctrines about Jesus and salvation, rather than to actually trust Jesus Christ Himself for salvation. The Bible refutes this heretical false teaching, noting that the "devils also believe and tremble". (James 2:19) Easy-Believism is related to such terms as “Decisionism", "Quick Prayerism" and “Salvation by Works”. The heresy of Easy Believism has been popularized today by such men as Billy Graham, the late Jerry Falwell and Rick...

  • Soulwinning or Salesmanship?

    "Do you believe you have ever done anything wrong, and that you are a sinner?" "Yes." "Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross to take away those sins?" "Yes." "Then will you bow your head with me, repeat a short prayer, and ask Jesus to come into your heart?" "Yes." (This is done.) "Now, you are saved!" "I am?" "Yes, the Bible says you are saved. Don’t you believe the Bible?" "Well, of course I do." "Then you are saved, right?" "Right." At first look, the method and message of the above illustration might seem beyond criticism. As...

    The Gospel According to Hybels & Warren (By Nathan Busenitz) Copyright 2003, Pulpit - Shepherds' Fellowship. All Rights Reserved. For more information about Shepherds' Fellowship and how to join go to: INTRODUCTION Preliminary Considerations The numbers are certainly impressive, the buildings expensive, and the congregations expansive. And there is plenty of reason to be enthusiastic— lost people are attending weekend services, the "unchurched" are being reached, and auditoriums once empty are being filled. But does the evangelistic philosophy behind the so-called "Church Growth Movement" (hereafter CGM) match up to the biblical model? Does it meet Scripture's standards or does...
  • Obedience: Love or Legalism? (John MacArthur)

    Grace To You European web site ^ | N/A | John MacArthur
    Obedience: Love or Legalism? A few years ago I wrote a book that became the subject of widespread controversy. That book, The Gospel According to Jesus, argued that Jesus is presented in the gospel as Savior and Lord, and He demands obedience. Those who remain obstinately unwilling to obey Him are actually guilty of rejecting the Christ who is offered in the gospel. So the person who claims to accept Jesus as Savior while persisting to refuse His lordship has actually spurned the true Christ and therefore is no Christian. That, of course, is nothing more or less than what...
