Quote to Consider:
Herman Hoeksema: "Our immediate concern is
... with those who , while they loudly and emphatically proclaim that
‘Jesus saves,’ yet deprive Him of all power to save unless the sinner
gives his consent. This is a great evil, and a very general and
prevalent one in our day, all the more dangerous because those that
thus preach Jesus ostensibly emphasize strongly exactly that which
they, nevertheless deny: that Jesus saves. The name of Jesus is on the
lips of many a preacher today, who, nevertheless, proclaims a Jesus
that is impotent to save ... For they do not mean that Jesus actually
saves, but that He is willing to save provided the sinner gives his
consent, will let himself be saved by Jesus; if not, their Jesus is
powerless to save. In other words, they do not find in their Jesus
absolutely all things necessary to save a sinner, and that, too, not a
willing, but an unwilling sinner that is dead through trespasses and
sins. And, therefore, it is not only proper, but urgently necessary
for the church that prizes and would preserve the truth as it is in
Christ, to emphasize that Christ is a complete, a perfect and only
Saviour, and that He is not only willing, but powerful to save even
unto the end. His name is called Jesus, ‘because he shall save His
people from their sins’" (The
Triple Knowledge, p. 454).
