Prior to the reign of the godly King Josiah, the law of God had been lost in the temple for many years. Has the same thing occurred among us? Has the evangel been lost among evangelicals?
~ Paul Washer

There is something worse than holding our silence while the lost of this world run headlong into hell: the crime of preaching a different gospel than the one passed down to the saints. For this reason, we must shun the gospel of contemporary evangelicalism, for it is a watered-down, culturally carved, truncated gospel that allows men to hold to a form of godliness while denying its power, to profess to know God while denying Him with their deeds, and to call Jesus, ‘Lord, Lord,’ while not doing the Father’s will. Woe to us if we do not preach the gospel, but even greater woe is due us if we preach it incorrectly!
~ Paul Washer

How would you like to have a happy life? How would you like to have an abundant life? Have a wonderful plan for your life? Want to know something? God has a terrible, wretched, ghastly plan for your life, apart from Christ.
~ John MacArthur

The worst thing you can do to somebody is talk to them about Christ, and when they’ve prayed a prayer and verbally invited Christ in their life, then to sit there and assure them they’re really saved, because you don’t have any idea whether they are. That’s the Holy Spirit’s work; He’s the one who grants assurance, and He grants it by the inward testimony, Romans 8, and by the outer exhibit of works that prove it, because faith without works is what? It’s dead.
~ John MacArthur

One of the legacies that we’ve had from the kind of evangelism that’s gone on in our country is that we believe salvation is attached to a decision, but the assurance of salvation has nothing to do with a decision in the past; it has to do with what’s going on in the present. Jesus put it this way in John 8: ‘If you continue in My word, then you are My real disciple.’ It’s always continuous; it’s always present tense.
~ John MacArthur
