How do you know that you’re truly saved? That’s a vexing question for many churchgoers.


And as John MacArthur rightly points out, the modern epidemic of decision-based evangelism has only served to escalate the confusion.

“Why is discipline important? Discipline teaches us to operate by principle rather than desire. Saying no to our impulses (even the ones that are not inherently sinful) puts us in control of our appetites rather than vice versa. It deposes our lust and permits truth, virtue, and integrity to rule our minds instead.”
John F. MacArthur Jr.

“Once I was free in the shackles of sin:
Free to be tempted, just bound to give in;

‘Til Someone bought me and called me His slave:
Bound by commands I am free to obey;
Captive by beauty I’m free to adore--
Sentenced to sit at His feet evermore.”
John F. MacArthur Jr.

“You can’t confuse childlike faith with childish thinking.”
John F. MacArthur Jr.
