They speak as if the whole matter is about notice

*They speak as if the whole matter is about ________________________.Notice these quotes:“Those who never hear the gospel are judged on the basis of what they know or should have known.” 199“People are judged based on what they know.” 210What are they missing by claiming this presupposition?Salvation is from saving _________________ . HOWEVERcondemnation is because of ______- not because of __________________2. The editors mischaracterize Luke 12:47-48. (p 210)Can you tell how?47And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, 48but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.They assume that _______________________ excuses completely.3. The editors assume that the only fault for which people are condemned is their lack of ___________________ or their lack of _____________________John 3:18, “18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Sonof God. “4. The Bible also teaches that people are condemned for their lack of _________________ to a _____________ standard which they should already ________.Romans 2:14-15b, 14 For when Gentiles, --- even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, …3:19-20, “19 --- the law --- speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the lawcomes knowledge of sin.God’s wrath comes upon people because of their sins, Eph 5:3-6)
86III. Biblical Observations1. ________________ revelation contains enough information for _________________.See Rom 1:20 and 2:6-92. Those ______________ of Christ will be judged for use of ____________ revelationSee Rom 2:14-163. A strict reading of Rom 3:9f would teach that no one sufficiently _____________ natural revelation.4. God has ______________________ deep ignorance in the past.Acts 17:30, "…the times of this ignorance God winked at…"Note: Only Christ saves, but He apparently has saved some who did not know the Gospel the way we know it today (exas, O.T. believers -- like Abraham. See Jn 8:56, Heb11:13 Rom 4:17-22. It seems that Abraham was justified for believing God would make him a "father of many nations.")5. The New Testament offers some ______________________ phrased promises.Tit 2:11-3Rom 5:18Jn 1:9I Cor 15:22-25I Pet 3:19; 4:6 (Did people in the past have a second chance after death?)6. Descriptions of hell are ____________________Rev 20:10Rev 20:157. ____________________ is still most compatible with a strict reading of the New Testament.Jn 3:18 - ________________________ are already condemnedJn 3:19 - men loved _______________ rather than light because their deeds are evil.
87Final Note (Mr. Leverett's personal view.)1. If we should ever wish our conservative view to be ______________, this is the issue.
