Truth - Satan Rules!

Phew! I'm so glad that someone finally told me about Satan, because I'd never heard about him before! Poor God! How can He exercise His omnipotence with that Satan guy in the way?!!!!!

For you,

Sinners, confronted with their need of salvation, frequently stumble over the simplicity of the salvation which God offers. Since Satan cannot take away anything from the conditions of salvation or the plan of salvation - for God has already reduced it to an irreducible minimum - if Satan is to confound the minds of the sinners he must do so by addition, not subtraction. If conditions were placed by God to salvation, Satan might take away those conditions so that men would not be saved. But since there are no conditions, and salvation is a simple fact to be believed, Satan's method of deceiving men has been to add to the simplicity of the gospel. That is why some will teach that salvation is by faith and good works; or, salvation is by faith and baptism; or, salvation is by faith plus church membership; or, salvation is by faith plus repentance. These are all attempts to darken the mind of the man who needs to be saved concerning the central issue and the basic plan of salvation.

There is only one word that represents all a sinner can do and must do to be saved and that word is believe.

Repentance is not the means by which we acquire eternal life. Luke’s testimony on this point is crystal clear.

This is probably not the place to post this, but everyone else seems to have gone walkabout, so i'm sure its not bothering anyone. First, i'm a great admirer of yours. Second, i'm a great admirer of the once influential but now sadly neglected Australian philosopher Samuel Alexander. While researching a reference to him in a long defunct (1921) newspaper i also came across this (book review see page 11) and thought it would be of interest.

Cheers, and keep up the good work.
