John MacArthur Teaching of Salvation by God ALone


The title that the person who recorded this I believe, made the title, but John MacArthur did not mention David Jeremiah or Calvary Chapel. 

While I believe that many today make salvation a process that is up the person. If you want to be saved on your own you can be saved, and God will save you if you ask.  While I don't believe this in that God opens the heart unto His salvation. 

Sinners do not respond better if you change the method, if ;you just change the invitation to suit the sinners idea than he will be better to be saved.  This is not even biblical.
