On Lordship Salvation vs Easy Believism

On Lordship Salvation vs Easy Believism Dear Fhris, Thanks for writing. My heart goes out to the situation that you describe. Although you seem to have couched your frustration with a label of “Lordship Salvation,” that teaching has little to do with the audacity found in the pastor that you describe.
