The inclusion of the following in "Quotations" should not be viewed as endorsement:

     "The plan of salvation then is seen as an all-embracing divine plan which gives the credit for man's salvation to God alone. No glory, not even a reflected glory, may accrue to man in the matter of salvation. He brings nothing, not even the will to be saved, to God" - Jay Green (Five Points of Calvinism, pgs. 2, pg. 28). (Please compare this statement with Craig Bean...."Legalism," dm.)

    "Salvation is a free gift from God to certain individuals. We exercise faith in order to be saved, but even our faith is also a gift of God. Faith is the result of regeneration. Unless the Holy Spirit energizes the sinner, that sinner cannot exercise saving faith. Unregenerate man is not capable of turning to God" - William Cox (Amillennialism Today, pg. 33).

     "We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace…Justification, the pardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life…are solely though faith" - Baptist Church Manual, Art. 4, pg. 47, Art. 5, pg. 48).
