In a nutshell, MacArthur attempts to take on the concept that people can make allegedly sincere professions of faith in Christ and then be considered a Christian with certain eternal security even if their life bears no good fruit after their supposed conversion. This is an important question, both from a theological standpoint as well as from a Christian living perspective. An increasing number of churches, particularly a number of megachurches, have appeared to shy away from topics that remind people of the reality of sin, the need for repentance and forgiveness, and the important desire of being obedient to God and His Word because such sentiments are increasingly unpopular within the realm of comfortable Christianity. MacArthur argues that good works are not a precondition of salvation, thus affirming the historic Protestant position of salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ and relying on His grace. But having affirmed this position, MacArthur then goes into fabulous Biblical detail concerning the FRUITS by which genuine salvation can be measured. Critics of MacArthur's book have argued that MacArthur is preaching a works based salvation, but I think it's clear that MacArthur is not doing that.Read more ›
As good as this book is, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are even better. If you really want to know the gospel of Jesus, go there first and let Him speak to you personally.Read more ›
The bottom line and main point of the book is that you must receive Jesus Christ as everything or you do not receive him at all. You can't pick and choose which or what parts of Jesus you want. Its all or nothing. It's a hard read for those who want a Savior but not a Lord.
"Then his (Jesus) mother and his brothers came to him, but they could not reach him because of the crowd. And he was told, "Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see you. "But he answered them, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and DO IT." Luke 8:19-21
I recommend this book to all Christians. I believe MacArthur does an excellent job in defending the truth of Jesus' Gospel. If you are not a fan of John MacArthur, or you don't believe in the sovereignty of God; please do NOT let that stop you from reading this book. The truth contained in its pages alone is worth the read. :)
