Every heretic who teaches Lordship Salvation deceitfully claims to believe that salvation is 100% by God’s grace; but they do not. If they truly believed that God’s salvation is unconditionally offered to mankind on the basis of Christ’s blood sacrifice alone, then they’d stop teaching that sinners must be “willing to change” their life and stop living in sin to be saved. The Biblical truth is that sinners don’t have to “change their actions” to be saved. —David J. Stewart

  1. Hey, I believe that salvation is free that can be obtained by trust Jesus Christ for salvation alone. However, I guess we have another question here, that is, what’s the true meaning of salvation (“being saved”)? I remember AW Pink once said that true salvation means being saved from both hell and sins and many people just want to be saved from hell but not sins. What if an unsaved sinner just wants to be saved from hell but not sins?

    (I believe that it’s okay if one just want to be saved from hell at the moment when they trust. I believe that the Lord will eventually save us from sins, but it’s at the moment when we return back to heaven. What do you think Curtis?)

    1. When a person believes in Jesus, they are immediately saved from both Hell and sins. All sins are forgiven. The person may not be living a God pleasing life, but he or she has Christ’s righteousness as an imputed gift.

  2. Curtis, my concern is is it okay if one’s main motive (or the only motive) to trust Jesus Christ for salvation is to be saved from hell?
    Maybe at the moment that he trusts, he doesn’t think about or doesn’t expect to be saved from sins, he just wants to be saved from hell, is it okay?
