To answer that basic question, Matthew Mead raises four questions:
1.) How far in the Christian walk may a man go, yet still be an almost Christian?
2.) Why is it that so many go so far yet fall short?
3.) Why, if they've come this far, are they still almost Christians?
4.) what is the reason they only go so far and no further?
In short, the answer is in this: the almost Christian refuses either to rest solely on Christ alone for his salvation or to work out his salvation with fear and trembling. It is either a refusal to believe and thus to work for his own salvation or it is a refusal to pursue Christ in all of his offices of Prophet, Priest, and King.
The almost Christian will cling to a beloved lust even while fastidiously keeping NT the Law at points which do not trample on his true love. The almost Christian will not give up all for the sake of Christ.
Written in an age when men were critical thinkers, not lifeless hearers.
Surprisingly easy to read, considering the day in which it was written.
