For the most part of the 20th century, altar calls and other prominent “offers” of salvation have been utilized to draw millions to a so-called gospel only to see that a majority of those millions still have no assurance of eternal life. This podcast discusses this issue and what the church should understand in history and in practice of these techniques. When it comes to these practices, Edward and James both have extensive experience with ministries who employed them. Edward was once with the Power Team, an evangelistic, altar-call ministry. Most of all, the scripture teaches us what we should know about the traditions of men concerning the call to faith.

The King James Bible is one of the most important published works in the history of the world. For centuries it was the only access to the Scriptures for English speaking peoples. Just as contextual criticism and manifold sources were used in its production and translation, the same type of processes and ‘sciences’ are used today. Many purport that the KJV is not just a blessing to the English language but it is also a divinely inspired and “authorized” text. In reality, the “authorization” of the printing is Parliament and there is nothing divine about the text. In this podcast, Edward and James consider the preferential King James reader and the “darker side” of King James Onlyism.

What type of knowledge is required in order for someone to have eternal life? Sufficient vs. exhaustive, what is the difference? Believing in Jesus Christ is not about what one “knows” but rather trusting in the truth of Christ as revealed in Scripture. Let us never forget that salvation comes through the regenerative work of God through His grace. He gives understanding and grows His people.
