hawk and dunc
i believe that salvation is progressive. it doesn't have a point a and a point b. meaning that it is constantly moving forward. it doesn't mean that you're constantly working for it and earning it. by no means. salvation is a gift. which is kind of a cool thought because we are always surrounding by the principle of input and output. you study, you get good grades. you work, you get a paycheck. you practice, you get better. etc. etc. a biblical way of saying this is you reap what you sow. in salvation's case there is no output. we get an undeserved output from someone else's input. that's a true gift. the thing that baffles me is what did Christ get from the deal. how did he benefit at all?
the picture of duncan and myself has nothing to do with these musings.
