ROMANS: Standing in Grace and Truthby Neil Anderson
"ROMANS: STANDING IN GRACE & TRUTH" is a concise exposition of Paul's letter to the Roman Christians, emphasizing key verses, with their theological implications. The unity of the Bible with regard to God's grace is vigorously defended. False teachings of the antinomianism of Modern [Chaferian] Dispensationalism are documented and refuted. The significance of the doctrinal errors of Dispensationalism regarding faith, repentance, sanctification, law and grace is emphasized. The false supposition that grace and law are antithetical is identified as the point of departure of Dispensationalism from the orthodox faith of the Bible.
The consistency, integrity, and unity of all of God's revealed truth-law, prophesy, gospel, Christ Jesus-is exemplified by use of appropriate Scripture and discussion; and the reality that these work in concert for the reconciliation of fallen man to the Creator and for man's general benefit is stressed. The ways that the term law is used by the Apostle Paul and the absolute necessity of understanding these usages are discussed in some detail. The hermeneutics of Dispensationalism, with its inherent and unwarranted fragmentation of Bible doctrine is soundly criticized. These separations or divisions are characteristic of the non-lordship, 'cheap grace gospel' and its related 'carnal Christianity' preached by many today, in these days of apostasy.
This book concludes that saving grace has been available through the obedience of faith ever since the sin of Adam, and it shows that God's gospel of grace recognizes no so-called dispensational or ethnic barriers. It emphasizes that, without holiness (that is, practical righteousness, as well as imputed righteousness) no one will see the Lord.
