Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Today, many who profess Christianity ask "How close to the world can I get and still be a Christian?" In 'The Almost Christian Discovered,' Puritan author Matthew Mead shows from Biblical examples just how close one can get to Christ and still NOT be a Christian. Mead takes example after example of people who demonstrated great signs of spiritual life but were never truly converted to Christ or as he puts it be "an almost Christian". Each example is taken from Scripture. For example, Mead shows us that one can have great and eminent spiritual gifts such as healing, cleansing and casting out demons but not be a Christian. Certainly this describes Judas. Like the other apostles, Judas is sent out in Matthew 10:7-8 to preach the gospel, heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Yet, Judas was not saved. Other topics covered by Mead include the possibility of having great hatred for sin and still being be an "almost Christian", or that some show great signs of repentance and are still "almost Christians." True to Puritan pastoral form there is also a section dealing with those who have an overly sensitive conscience. Mead desires to convict the hypocrite, not break the bruised reed. For a generation raised on grace, where everyone can claim to be "born again," his book offers much to ponder. It is a great book for home Bible study, discipleship class, Sunday school or for personal edification. It also makes a great gift for pastors or any serious student of theology. Mead's point: it is possible to be zealous for God and still miss heaven. His book helps expose this truth, together with ways to avoid such an eternal disaster. Codice inventario libreria

L'autore: Matthew Mead (1630?1699) was an English Independent minister. Mead succeeded John Owen in September 1683 as one of the Tuesday morning lecturers (presbyterian and congregational) at the merchants' lecture in Pinners' Hall. Pleading there on one occasion on behalf of poor ministers, he got a collection of £300., ladies putting their rings and watches into the plates. In 1686 he was again in Holland, preaching at Utrecht; he returned on King James's declaration for liberty of conscience in 1687.
