The church in America needs less contemporary pastors, and more preachers like Paul Washer. For there is no salvation without repentance. For more about “salvation and eternal life’ click here.
Side note: In the ‘context of salvation,’ yes we’re saved by grace thru faith alone. However, a truly born-again Christian would have constant repentance and the evidence of a new life. Some churches or pastors place a huge emphasis on ‘grace,’ but what shall we do with that salvation once we’re saved by His grace? The Bible asks ‘shall we continue in our sins?’ Of course not. We must grow, and commit, and surrender our lives to Christ. We must die to ourselves; we must deny ourselves and pick up His cross daily… etcetera.
