Emmet Fox - Sermon on the Mount


The "Plan of Salvation" which figures so promantly in the evangelical sermons and divinity books is ... completely unknown in the Bible. There never was any such arrangement in the universe, and the Bible does not teach it at all. What has happened is that certain obscure texts from Genesis, a few phrases taken here and there from Paul's letters, and one or two isolated verses from other parts of the Scriptures, have been taken out and pieced together to produce the kind of teaching which it seemed to them ought to have been found in the Bible.

Jesus knows nothing of all this. He is indeed anything but a Pollyanna, as they say, or a cheap optimist. He warns us, not once but often, that obstinacy in sin can bring very, very severe punishment in its train, and that a man who parts with the integrity of his soul -- even though he gain the whole world -- is a terrible fool. But he teaches that we are only punished for -- and actually punished by -- our own mistakes; and he teaches that every man or woman, no matter how steeped in evil and uncleanness, has always direct access to an all-loving, all-powerful Father-God, who will forgive him and supply His own strength to him to enable him to find himself again; and unto seventy times seven, if need be.

Beautiful book that I'm halfway through. Emmet Fox is a champion for true Christianity. He presents the teachings of Jesus unadulterated by the creeds and confessions, doctrinal prejudices, bibliolatry and ecclesiasticism of mainstream believers.
