Hello,

I read your response on David Platt's Radical sermon (giving), and wanted to say I agree with you. I keep going back to the point that - the rich young ruler could have sold all he had, literally followed Jesus and not been saved. Selling goods doesn't save. Receiving Christ does. Do you take from the sermon that Platt is preaching sanctification to the lost, something that will not save them?

Hi Mike,

No, I don't think that Pastor Platt is trying to preach sanctification to the lost. I think he really, really believes in getting the gospel to the lost and also doing good works along the way. I also think that he sees that laziness and unwillingness to sacrifice are serious obstacles to getting the gospel out. My opinion is that, in this sermon, his zeal caused him to err in this particular sermon.

Brad,
Read your comment over at GC on the burning of books thing. I could hug you man!! Perfect.

Freedom is under attack and many Christians are not sure what that means.

Keep it up.
Blessings,
Chris

Brad,

Loved your comments on Kevin DeYoung's blog and fully agree.

I went to high school with some Albertville boys, the Hannah brothers. Serious athletes! (But I try not to tell them that I got my doctorate at Auburn.)
