In Gods‚Äôs Providence, He led me to this very sermon this afternoon.ūüôā.Found it on my Gospel of Grace podcast. Thank you for posting it up.brother Scott preached absolute truth.So many are deceived by a false self-righteous imitation of the gospel.
Dr. Tim wrote: The difference between Catholics and Anglicans is hardly noticeable to an outsider. When men in dresses, referred to as ‚ÄúFather,‚ÄĚ administer rites known as ‚Äúsacraments‚ÄĚ in both, it looks pretty much the same to me.
That‚Äôs why most in ‚Äėdenominational religion‚Äô don‚Äôt know the Gospel from a goose and can align with every heretic and cult in religious la la land. Confusion abounds because most have not been born from above.

Another worthwhile read to learn what ‚Äėgospel‚Äô Packer believed and aligned himself with: https://www.the-highway.com‚ÄĚThe Alignment of New Evangelicals with Apostasy‚ÄĚ. Richard M. Bennett. He was a false teacher. Matthew 7:15-20.
Ladybug wrote: Yep. Dead works include anything a sinner thinks they do to get saved. God granted the Gentiles repentance from their dead works as well, anything somebody relies on to get right with God is a dead work. Any self righteous act they perform, anything they think earns merit with God. Look at some people's testimony, they always talk about themselves 'i no longer do this, or that' as though God looks to their works as acceptable for salvation. God only sees the finished work of His Son as propitiation for the sins of the elect. False religion points you to 'self'. That's why I posted the latter half of 2 Timothy 2:25, if God peradventure will give them repentance to theūüĎČ acknowledging of the truthūüĎą. You (in general) haven't truly repented until God has brought you to this understanding. Please consider listening to or reading Randy Wages sermon entitled initial repentance. https://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=624191248191580
