Decisional Regeneration

armI heard it said from the pulpit one Sunday morning, “you must be born again, what are you waiting for!” I knew it was time to move on.

The framing of the Gospel in this manner places God’s free salvation within the clutches of sinful man making him sovereign. To say God is trying to win your soul and Satan is trying to corrupt it, as if it were a battle between equals, misses a very important point of the Gospel. Satan is not God’s equal. Scripture is abundantly clear that man is dead in trespasses and sin, we are sinners by nature and by choice.

Below is a short post by Tim Challies about decisional regeneration worth looking at.

Tim Challies, “We must not deviate from the Scriptures in order to win more bodies while we give false assurance to souls.” (article is found here)
