A FREE Chapter of From Death to Life

by | Sep 17, 2018 | Theology

“Don’t compare yourself to others who call themselves Christians. 
Compare yourself to Scripture.” —Paul Washer[1]

Dead men live among us. Waiting in line for coffee. Cheering beside us at the ball game. Selling insurance. Liking our posts on social media. Eating at the corner table in the restaurant. Some are in the next pew over every Sunday. Some teach small groups and fill pulpits.

Perhaps one is reading this book.

And I’m not talking about a physical zombie apocalypse. I’m talking about those living among us who are spiritually dead.

There is a pandemic in America of false conversions to the Christian faith. Many people claim to be Christians who don’t exactly fit the biblical definition of what a Christian is. They have a reputation for being alive but are in fact dead.[2] This spiritual zombie apocalypse isn’t coming. It’s already gone viral and if the tide is not stemmed the church in America will fall mightily.[3] The alarm bells have been ringing for quite a while and we have no time left to hit snooze. It’s time to wake up. The urgency for biblical fidelity has never been greater. Our opportunity is now…

The above is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of my new book From Death to Life: How Salvation Works. In this chapter, I lay out some of the misunderstandings we see today, even in conservative evangelical churches, of how salvation works and lay out some of my reasons on why a book like this is necessary in the first place.  I’d like to offer you the opportunity to download the whole chapter in .pdf form for free. Just click the link below. (Seriously, it’s free. You don’t have to sing up for anything or even tell me you got it!).

[1] This comes from a sermon Paul Washer preached at the True Church Conference in 2007.

[2] Revelation 3:1

[3] Yes, we do have Matthew 16:18. But we must not think that this promise guarantees the church in the United States will forever endure. Jesus has the right to remove our lampstand (Revelation 2:5).
