The following question came today via email from a friend: I know that you (and presumably everyone at GES) do not believe that repentance is “necessary” for salvation. I have several of Zane Hodges’ books on free grace, and he appears to hold this view mainly based on his understanding of the Biblical meaning of repentance
I received a handwritten letter (yes, some people still do that!) asking the question which is the title of this blog. The question concerned a November-December 2017 Grace in Focus magazine article by Bill Fiess and me entitled, “Saving Faith Is Not Heartfelt Trust.” The article was not discussing trust per se, but heartfelt trust.
