jannloBlandon, PAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5May 14, 2011jannloBlandon, PAAge: Over 65Gender: maleThe author examines four views on the warnings and assurance and offers another view that uses and explains the Greek first-class conditional if clause. He examines five verses in Hebrews corcerning God's warnings and admonitions and how they fit with Paul's already but not yet view of the eschatological goal of Christians. The author offer another view which uses the warnings and admonitions to put them in their true prespective and to show how God uses these warnings and admonitions to enrich and enlarge our faith and to build our confidence in God's promises to save and presere his people to the end.
David Leary4 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2006David LearyGood thourough treatment of the subject. I hold to the test of genuiness theory and while the book disagreed with that position, I came away even more solidified in that view. I really do believe your theory teaches a works righteousness. You say, that Justification doesn't do enough, we have to do works (be obedient) to justify ourselves before God (pg. 293) in order to obtain the salvation that is not entirely ours yet. But you say, the works are all done by the grace of God so that doesn't make them works any more. Whatever. I'll stick with Calvin, Luther, Owen, Sproul and MacArthur and the Protestant Reformation view of the Bible texts rather than adopt your unique positions. Faith = Salvation + works. NOT Faith + works = salvation. To be fair your equation would read: faith = partial salvation + works = the rest of salvation.
P. Chase Sears5 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2006P. Chase SearsThe Authors are Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner, professor of New Testament at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Ardel B. Caneday, associate professor of Bible at Northwestern College. They have set out to write this book in manner that the author of individual chapters cannot be discerned (9). As noted in the subtitle of this book, the authors objective is to offer a biblical theology of perseverance and assurance. The first chapter of the book explores four of the major views on warnings and admonition in Scripture.
