sermonette: Almost Persuaded
Given 01-Dec-12; Sermon #1132s; 19 minutes
Charles Whitaker, reflecting on an old Protestant hymn, "Almost Persuaded," a kind of altar call, hard sell Protestantism incorporating two standard Protestant lies (eternal security, and today as the only day of salvation), focuses upon the adjective "Almost" in Acts 26:28, a word which distorts the correct meaning. The terms "almost" and "altogether" refer to periods of time (suggesting different periods of salvation) rather than insufficient or puny proofs. God can bring about salvation on His own timetable rather than as a kind of used car salesman, hard sell, "now or never" pitch suggested by the Protestant hymn.
