That Verse - Ephesians 2:8 Print

A decade ago, the Primitive Baptists endured a time of theological controversy, including a shift away from the precious truths of God's total Sovereign Grace towards the more Fulleristic (and I would demand, erroneous) view of Duty Faith. Because of this, verses such as Ephesians 2:8, which were so often and mightily preached in my childhood became seldom referenced in preaching and even mildly controversial. I feel this is a great shame.

 

In a current sermon series at Flint River Church, I devoted an entire sermon to this verse, Ephesians 2:8. What does it mean? What does it NOT mean? I share my thoughts with you for your consideration, admittedly pleading for the more historic ways our people, the Primitive Baptists, have understood this text. At the same time, my words are not intended to be an authoritative standard. As Paul reasoned, "consider what I say, the Lord give thee understanding."

 

The entire series may be to the sermon archive in the future, but for now we're adding this single sermon by request.

 

May God bless,

Ben Winslett
