Salvation by Osmosis

Conformists believe relationships, camaraderie, and affability will lead people to Christ.  It’s a sort of salvation by osmosis.  In their view, redemption will be subjectively induced without verbal definition.

The problem is, it doesn’t work that way.  Jesus’ command to preach the gospel to a lost and dying world is an absolute, not an option.  We can and should be pleasant folk, but you can’t smile people into heaven.  Remove the message of life-transforming salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and there is nothing left but another emaciated religious faction.” ~ Elwood McQuaid, ‘The Changing Face of America’
