On the other hand, no Christian could remain alone [have no works, no life in Christ] if he were a Christian. Right? Self cancel the effect of who he was in Christ? A very dangerous tack. How long could he do so, if he could? Is it a matter of us making a decision to fall into the ground and die after we have seriously decided for Christ?
The Major was an excellent speaker but he could speak over his listeners in his eloquence. This sermon is a superb sermon but you have my reservations.
