From: The Gift Nobody Wants

In the Apostolic invitation we see, “Repent and believe”.  ~Paul Washer

Most men [in the history of the church], were discipled through the preaching of the word of God. ~Paul Washer

The invitation we give cannot even be found in the New Testament. ~Paul Washer

If you notice in the New Testament, the invitation comes in the form of an authoritative command.  Repent and believe! ~Paul Washer

We wonder why the church is in such a state when it doesn’t even have the Gospel right. ~Paul Washer

The evidence … the raw-bone, biblical evidence that there was one time in your life that you repented unto salvation, is that you continue repenting until today and continue growing in repentance. ~Paul Washer

Christianity is not a once-and-for-all flu shot. ~Paul Washer

A person who can show no mark in the sanctifying work of God in their life has no assurance that they have been justified. ~Paul Washer

Repentance, at its most basic root means ‘a changed mind’ with regard to reality itself. ~Paul Washer

When God comes into the heart of man, what happens?  He sees God and, in the light of that, he sees himself and he’s broken. ~Paul Washer

In that revelation of God, and in that revelation of sinfulness, comes the revelation of the salvation of God through the face of Jesus Christ. ~Paul Washer

Your joy is no longer going to be your performance, your joy is going to be in the thinnest work of God in Jesus Christ. ~Paul Washer

Supposed gifting and supposed signs and powers in ministry are not necessarily the same thing as fruit. ~Paul Washer

You are struggling to DO … you need to struggle to BE. ~Paul Washer

There are certain characteristics of true discipleship.  If you lose those characteristics, you may replace them with other things but its not true discipleship. ~Paul Washer

What does a real disciple of Jesus Christ look like?  He’s poor in spirit; he mourns over sin; he’s gentle; he hungers and thirsts for righteousness; he’s merciful; he’s pure in heart (in the sense he has no undivided loyalties); he is a peacemaker; and he is marked by persecution. ~Paul Washer

A false prophet is known by two things; the fruit that they bear, and the gospel they preach. ~Paul Washer

It’s absolutely absurd to say you are a disciple of Jesus Christ yet not bear the fruit of Jesus Christ. ~Paul Washer

How is it we can believe that someone can be Christian and yet live a life of continuous rebellion against God? ~Paul Washer

How can you say you’ve had an encounter with God and not be changed? ~Paul Washer

They ought to kick most pastors out of their practice because, out of cowardice or self-preservation, they will not preach the Gospel. ~Paul Washer

Salvation is a supernatural work of God whereby someone really does become a new creature. That’s not spiritual poetry, its reality. ~Paul Washer

You can judge a book by its cover, in the same way you can judge a tree by its fruit. ~Paul Washer

It’s a spiritual impossibility for a true Christian to bear bad fruit. ~Paul Washer

This salvation thing is a work of God to show His glory.  That’s why He’s not going to let it fail. ~Paul Washer

The evidence of your salvation is going to be God beginning to work in your life, directing you towards scripture, pointing out sin in your life, making you contrite. ~Paul Washer

Truth is meant to wound. ~Paul Washer
