My generation of Christians love rationalistic debates. And one favorite debating point is the question of salvation: among professing believers who is truly saved? Whenever that question is raised claims and counterclaims fly: “You don’t have any right to judge us!” Or, “You’re bending the Bible to build your view!” And again, “Our faith offers the only true doctrine because it represents two thousand years while your church believes all sorts of new nonsense!” And so on. Stimulating, maybe, but not very fruitful!
