DR. CRAIG S. KEENER’s review of MacArthur’s Book Strange Fire

Posted by Asen Shudov in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

An interesting comment by Keener in his review of MacArthur’s book:

“…we are justified by faith in Christ, not by faith in justification by faith; it therefore should be possible for many people to trust Christ as their savior without understanding their church’s doctrine or even Paul’s explanation…If, because we depend solely on Jesus as savior, it is heretical to believe that one must belong to the Catholic church to be saved, it is therefore also heretical to believe that one must belong to the Protestant church to be saved.”

Hi my name is Jacqueline and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I discovered your DR. CRAIG S. KEENER’s review of MacArthur’s Book Strange Fire | Pentecostal Theology page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors. I have found that the key to running a popular website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter….

    Does this mean that I can be a Christian even though I am no longer a member of the COG?
