239L Is "Lordship" Salvation Biblical?
The central tenet of Evangelical theology has always been justification by faith alone in Christ alone. Does that mean that a sincere profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is sufficient for salvation? Or does faith include works that the believer must do once (hopefully) saved in order to be sure he really has the right kind of faith that saves? And must our witnessing to the unsaved include warnings of eternal judgment for those who fail to demonstrate by their lives that they are regenerate? For centuries down to the present day, these questions have been debated. This course will demonstrate the importance of these issues as they played out in church history even apart from Roman Catholicism, and how they affect the believer's assurance of salvation.
