Some say the disagreement over "Lordship salvation" is simply a matter of semantics. Others (including folks from both sides) insist that it's a foundational gospel issue. I've argued that, far too often, it's the latter.
In a previous comment thread, I asked a couple questions that would seem to move us toward clarity—whether the issue is a matter of semantics or different understandings of the gospel. I thought it might be useful, since the answer proposed resembled a smokescreen more than a biblical explanation, to present them to a broader audience:
1) Is repentance essential to conversion?
2) How is repentance different from submission to Christ's lordship?
As Ross Perot used to say, "I'm all ears."
And for all the kids out there, this is who I'm talking about . . .
