An Old Snippet From Bobby Grow
Bobby had this on one of his old blogs.
I miss Bobby. Don't you?
This is the wrong emphasis in salvation. The biblical framework of soteriology is built upon unconditional accomplishments, not a conditional covenant. An important consequence of current day nomism/Lordship Salvation/hyper-Calvinism, is that the Calvinist/Nomist concept of perseverance of the saints/and Arminian/Pelagian concept of "losing salvation" can be reduced to the same functional understanding. They are both based upon a concept of the "Law" that is thoroughly conditional in nature. Thus the outworking of this is seen as these two theological constructs constantly are absorbed by individual ethical performance (thus proving their election) and the resultant emphasis upon man's work in salvation, rather than elevating and magnifying the work of Christ in salvation.
