Salvation by obedience

He is the source of salvation to those who obey Him (Heb. 5:9).

Now what is involved in obeying Him so that one might experience eternal salvation?

That is a fundamental question in Idaho Falls.

Certainly, if you are not obeying Jesus Christ, you are in big danger.

  1. “That is a fundamental question in Idaho Falls.”

    Hopefully not only among Mormons, but also among Baptists.

    “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Adam and drink His blood, you shall not have life within you.”

  2. If Baptists in South Carolina do not eat His flesh and drink His blood, they have no life in Christ. It doesn’t matter what they call themselves.

  3. “If Baptists in South Carolina do not eat His flesh and drink His blood, they have no life in Christ. It doesn’t matter what they call themselves”

    True enough, and nowhere are Baptists known for actually doing this.

  4. Christopher: Forgive me, but that video is over an hour long. Can you summarize it for me? Are “the fathers” in question the Church fathers or OT patriarchs?

    I am afraid, in all seriousness, that between age, a “minor” brain injury a few years ago, and spending too much time online, my attention span has become somewhat impaired.

  5. Todd, or anyone else who has watched Christopher’s link, please feel free to weigh in. I am really interested in what is said, but as I said above…

  6. Sorry for not getting back earlier. Busy week.

    The video is of Ligon Duncan at the Together for the Gospel Conference. He is answering the question of whether the fathers, especially in the first three centuries, had the same understanding of the gospel as the reformers. It is a lengthy, but helpful, summery of how many Evangelicals understand and study the patristic church.
