MacArthur Retrospective on the Lordship Controversy
Today, Pulpit Magazine continues its series on Lordship Salvation with John MacArthur's "A 15-Year Retrospective on the Lordship Controversy." I do not plan on posting a link for every entry in the series, but I do hope people will continue reading MacArthur's thinking on this crucial issue. While I have posted a series on Lordship Salvation myself, no one handles this issue better than MacArthur. Here is an introductory excerpt:

Apparently, no-lordship doctrine no longer dominates Dallas Seminary the way it once did, but controversy over the issue is by no means dead. The past year or so has seen publication of a few new books touting the no-lordship view, attempting to revive the debate yet again. At least one organization, the Grace Evangelical Society, was founded in the heat of the controversy a decade and a half ago and regularly publishes a journal and a newsletter devoted to defending no-lordship theology. The question evidently remains unsettled for many.

My own views on “lordship salvation” have not changed, and if anything I now see the issue as larger and more far-reaching than I did when I first wrote The Gospel According to Jesus. Much more is at stake than just the question of how we proclaim the gospel. The lordship issue has serious ramifications for a number of crucial points of theology.
