The message proclaimed today by many Christians is not the gospel according to Jesus. It is true that Jesus taught good news, but he did not teach the easy-believism that is ravaging the American evangelical movement. Many today take salvation too lightly by ignoring the warnings of Jesus that the cost of discipleship is high, the way narrow so that few find it, and that not all who call Jesus Lord will be accepted into the kingdom. MacArthur looks at the condition of the "church" today and sees weak churches, many conversions and much enrollment that has less and less impact on our world today. He tackles issues such as: 1. there is no justification without regeneration. 2. Faith without works is dead and that no one will ever be saved by a dead faith. 3. The mark of true justification is persevering to the end. 4. Without holiness no one will see the Lord. etc. This is an accurately shocking analysis of the modern day church, and his description of conversion is wonderfully radical. - Publisher.
