The Journey from False Profession to Assurance of Salvation

Saturday, October 18, 2014


Guest: Pastor Greg Lundstedt, Equipping the Saints radio program

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:21-23)

One pastor called the above passage from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount the scariest statement in Scripture.  Imagine the horror of going through life thinking you’re a Christian and headed for eternity in heaven, but then standing before Christ on Judgment Day and hearing Him declare, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.”

According to this passage, a person can profess Christ as Lord and do amazing works in Christ’s name, yet not possess a genuine saving relationship with Him.  So the question is: When we examine own our profession of faith, how can we know if we are truly saved?  Is it a matter of praying the right prayer or doing the right things?

Pastor Greg Lundstedt of Vancouver (WA) Bible Fellowship and Bible teacher of Equipping the Saints radio program will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss his own journey from being a professing—but unsaved—Christian to being a true follower of Christ with assurance of salvation.  I hope you will join us for this important discussion.

Professor But Not Possessor? (Oct. 20-26, 2014)

Monday, October 20, 2014



Professor but not possessor?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Jesus says in Matthew 7 that many will call Him “Lord” and do great works in His name, but that he will still declare to them on judgment day: “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.”

How can this be?  Well, there is an eternal destination of difference between professing to be a Christian and actually possessing genuine saving faith.

The Bible says that those who repent of their sins and place their faith in Christ, and not their own good works, are the ones Jesus’ saves.  Good works are the evidence of genuine conversion, not the basis for it.

This weekend, we’ll talk with author Jerry Bridges about the pursuit of holiness.
