In John MacArthur's New King James Study bible on pg. 1416 in reference to Matthew 13.20.
NKJV Matthew 13.20 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;
John says in his notes and I quote " They remain interested only until there is a sacrificial price to pay, and then abandon Christ"
John says we have to pay???Would that then make it of debt?
Ro 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. Ro 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
John adds works to the gospel of the grace of God because John can careless about rightly dividing, context, about who Matthew is written too, Who Jesus was talking too and condemns souls to hell by violating Paul's writings! 1 Corinthians 14.37.
1Co 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
