Bible Teaching aimed at helping you enjoy the Scriptures which are the Word of GOD!
Preaching by: John J. Malone, Sr - JABSBG*
This week I am attending the Grace Evangelical Society Conference (GES) for the first time.
It’s an interesting conference in one way just for its existence. It is something of a commentary on the state of the Word of God as it is held today that a society and a conference is specially formed for people to reinforce that salvation comes “by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.”
After all, that is the only good news and hope there is in the world, and I wonder what other basic teachings that believers would gather unto? Of course, we believers are not called to gather unto a doctrine, but the Lord Jesus Himself, but something as basic as salvation-by-grace-through-faith really determines whether we have life at all or not, so it seems an issue to proceed ANY gathering.
There are really two principles contested today, and for which it appears this organization and conference are about.
The first is around the simple gospel message . This is a life and death issue. Holding fast to it is one reason the epistle to the Galatians is written.
But there is a second issue, the MAIN reason the epistle to the Galatians is written, and that has to do with whether or not the grace-through-faith principle changes for those who already have life. Of course, it does NOT .
Failure to follow the grace-through-faith principle in the Christian life is what renders Christians immature, and thus ineffective.
