Have Christians Reduced Salvation to 'Get Out of Hell Free' Card?

Has salvation been reduced to a "Get Out of Hell Free" card? That's what one Southern Baptist believes.

Ken Keathley, professor of Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C., says many Christians are presenting salvation as a "commodity that Jesus purchased and now offers."

"Christ is presented as having bought salvation by His death on the Cross, and if you ask Him then He will give it to you," he wrote in a recent commentary. "Salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are understood entirely as a purchase, a business deal, or a transaction. Salvation is reduced to the offer of a 'Get Out of Hell Free' card." ...

The apostle John was mistaken then?

Partially right?

What part of "The Lake of Fire is another name for Hell." is right?

As for Rugh's sermon summary....

"Has salvation been reduced to a "Get Out of Hell Free" card?"

The Roman Catholics and Liberals have reduced it to this nonsense.

Real Christians know better and teach the truth.

While we can't deemphasize hell, Catholics carry it one step further and have a place a non-existent purgatory, Purgatory: An Essential Roman Catholic Doctrine and Purgatory—A Grave Rejection of the Gospel. There are no second changes after a person's physical death.

Apparently some Protestants have been, again, been contaminated by the false teachings of the Romish Church.

No, John Y. Rufus is right.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Only Enoch and Elijah were known to escape hell.

. . .

" "Salvation," he underscored, "is not something Jesus gives; salvation is something He is. One does not receive salvation from Jesus. You and I receive Him – the Lord Jesus Christ – for Who He is, and in receiving Him we receive salvation, redemption, and eternal life.

"We are not simply being offered a really great bargain; we are called to enter into a covenant relationship with Christ." "

A distinction without a difference. While the former sounds mechanical, it is, none the less, true as is the latter. This is not the solution to false conversions. While men plants and waters, it is God alone who gives the increase.

those who follow Christ do so because they do not want enmity between them and their righteous heavenly Father. They want to know Him as they are known.

Its not just about where you're going but who you are, for many, the Kingdom has already come through Christ, has already begun within. So CHrist would not be the means to an end but the means and the end, yes?

What happens when your whole extended family was saved and baptized but now no one seems to care about Jesus? Perhaps they all see the gospel as a commodity/transaction (past tense) instead of a relationship (present and future tense).
