God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:9)
I reject the human insistence among us that Christ may sustain a divided relationship toward us in this life.
I am aware that this is now so commonly preached that to oppose it or object to it means that you are sticking your neck out and you had best be prepared for what comes.
But, I am forced to ask: how can we insist and teach that our Lord Jesus Christ can be our Savior without being our Lord?
How can so many continue to teach that we can be saved without any thought of obedience to our Sovereign Lord?
I am satisfied in my own heart that when a man or a woman believes on the Lord Jesus Christ he or she must believe on the whole Lord Jesus Christ—not making any reservation! How can a teaching be justified when it encourages sinners to use Jesus as a Savior in their time of need, without owing Him obedience and allegiance?
I believe we need to return to preaching a whole Christ to our needy world!
