A Doctrine of Men

There is a doctrine of men that is once again coming into vogue after centuries of quiet gestation. It is among the most hideous of the cults because it has the respectability of the "spiritually" and "intellectually" elite, claiming for itself the banner of Reformation truth. And yet it mimics the popular doctrine of Unconditional Love that also teaches that man must do nothing to be saved. Both the doctrines of Calvinism and Unconditional Love forget that there is a "condition":

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
