A Cardinal Error

March 12, 2007

The cardinal error against which the gospel of Christ has to contend is the effect of the tendency of the human heart to rely on salvation by works. The great antagonist to the truth as it is in Jesus is that pride of man which leads him to believe that he can be, at least in part, his own savior. This error is the prolific mother of multitudes of heresies.

    It is a direct attack on the love of God for a person to even begin to consider this idea. But alas, it is true. A few weeks ago I was out soulwinning with a fellow Californian and this person just refused to believe that they had to do nothing (works orientated nothingness of course). They could not fathom the idea that a complete stranger (as they put it) could be willing to give him anything for nothing. But I guess the guy put it right. To the unsaved person Christ is a stranger and so a free gift would be weird. Still though, I believe it is a direct attack on the love of God, one of Satan’s primary targets to cause doubt in our lives.
