This modern gospel is presented with no hint that God is sovereign and active in drawing to Himself those whom He has chosen. In Scripture these truths are not hidden lest they should cause offence; they are declared and even emphasized, since God is glorified when man can boast of nothing in himself as the cause of salvation. ‘I contribute nothing to my salvation except the sin from which I need to be saved’ (Acts 13:48, Matt. 11:25–30, John 6:63–65; 15:16, Rom. 9:14–24).
