Item description for Salvation Is More Complicated Than You Think: A Study on the Teachings of Jesus by Alan P. Stanley...
Overview Discussing how obedience-not perfection-is the fruit of genuine saving faith and produced by God's enabling grace.
Publishers Description In looking at the complex but important topic of what it takes to truly be saved, Alan Stanley asserts that contrary to what so many church-going Christians believe today, there is more to salvation. He argues that today's notion of salvation as a decision tantamount to "accepting Jesus in your heart" falls short of what Jesus and the rest of the Bible teaches. Furthermore, he shows that for the first eighteen hundred years of the church, orthodox men like Augustine, Martin Luther, John Calvin and John Wesley understood and taught a more well-rounded view of salvation as do most scholars today. But Stanley feels this message is not always clearly communicated. With a genuine heart of concern, Stanley inspects the Scriptures to see how Jesus describes those who are saved. The reader will discover what it really means to be a Christian. The goal is not perfection but a personal relationship - to know and love Christ. The reader will also discover that God's grace is greater than what they perhaps had ever imagined.
