The Best of 2009- Is Christ’s Resurrection Part of the Saving Message?

Dear Guests of IDOTG:

Over the past 2+ years I have documented any number of egregious reductionist heresies coming from the Grace Evangelical Society. Most of them were originated by the late Zane Hodges. Although the Grace Evangelical Society has become an isolated cell of theological extremists they do, however, perpetuate the legacy and reductionist soteriology of Zane Hodges.

The two part series from 2009 by Phillip Evans considers how Bob Wilkin, Executive Director of Grace Evangelical Society, representing the Crossless Gospel strips belief in the resurrection from the saving message. For example,

Wilkin’s fourth reason for apologizing for his prior Statement of Faith is the most troubling for those who hold to the truth of the Gospel. He writes: “Fourth, the term ‘risen Christ,’ though accurate, has caused some to wonder if we are saying that to be born again a person must believe that Jesus rose from the dead.”

Let there be no misunderstanding. Wilkin does not consider belief in Christ’s resurrection to be necessary in order to be saved! With seeming relief, in reference to the resurrection he writes, “The statement doesn’t say one must believe that to be born again.”
For a compete expose of this Hodges inspired error please continue to-
