I am drawing your attention to two articles that appear at the Free Grace Believer blog. This is a fairly new blog that is administered by a man named Dave.
I found this blog through a link from JP’s Free Grace, Free Speech blog. I posted some questions/comments on Dave’s article on Lordship Salvation and his experience with that theology.
Later in the Lordship thread another blogger who is strongly sympathetic toward, supportive and defensive of the Grace Evangelical Society’s reductionist Crossless gospel and its most extreme advocates posted a comment. The comment was not a problem, but I felt Dave deserved a word of caution about this persons leanings in the Lordship/Crossless debates. I sent a note of caution about that bloggers support of the Crossless gospel in case she were to introduce that teaching or its advocates into the Lordship Salvation discussion.
The last thing we need in our debates against Lordship Salvation is the equally heretical Crossless gospel presented as an acceptable alternative. My caution touched off a new discussion, which Dave titled the, Crossless Gospel by Lou Martuneac, which was opened yesterday.
In that Crossless gospel thread you will much the same mantra claims of “misrepresentation.” In any event, it is a good read.
Be sure to see my comments and especially KnetKnight’s irrefutable proof that Zane Hodges and Bob Wilkin do indeed hold to a Crossless gospel. You will find KentKnight’s comment posted here.
Dave at his Free Grace Believer blog will be closing the article and thread shortly. Dave plans to follow that with a closing article with his findings on the GES's Crossless gospel.
Please Note: I am preparing a follow-up series to share some of the exchanges that are currently taking place at the Free Grace Believer blog over the Grace Evangelical Society’s Crossless interpretation of the Gospel. Many of the comments I am going to reproduce in this series clinch the deal on the teaching of the Crossless gospel as they are defined by Dr. Bob Wilkin.
