The Gospel Is Not An Offer

Every declaration of God to the sinner is on the principle of grace and gift, not an offer, which implies there is some capability in man to make use of the benefit offered.

The offer of salvation is a denial of man’s total depravity as born in Adam’s fall, and “dead in trespasses and sins”; it ignores the Gospel truth of the new birth and puts in its place man’s acceptance of the offer as the condition of the divine life.

By John Hazelton (1909)
