If you are supporting TSTL or placing advertisements therein, then you are helping to promote a false gospel. On purpose, TSTL leaves out biblical repentance as a necessary prerequisite for justification or salvation. Even if some of the participants of TSTL believe in a scriptural view of repentance, the paper itself leaves it out in part because many of its supporters would oppose repentance. Someone can't really believe in biblical repentance and still support TSTL in any way. You can say you believe in it, but when you continue supporting in any way those who don't, then you don't believe it either.
As it stands, TSTL avoids preaching a true gospel and doesn't care that it proclaims a false one. If you read TSTL and you can't tell that it preaches a false gospel, then you either don't understand the gospel well enough or you don't care about the gospel enough. TSTL sends a free copy to me every two weeks. Sometimes I don't look at it at all. Other times I leaf through it to see if there is anything I might want to read. The most recent of the latter was the February 24, 2017 edition and its top fold, p. 1, sermon by Oliver B. Greene, entitled, "God's Plan of Salvation." I wondered, what would TSTL be willing to publish (if Greene preached a true gospel)? I've never heard Greene on the radio, but for a long time, he had a national radio program called the Gospel Hour. So I also wondered, was the gospel preached in that hour? My conclusion, not always, at least.
I'm going to move to the end of Greene's presentation on p. 21 of TSTL. He prints the heading: Salvation Is God's Gift to the Sinner. To explain that, he writes, "Salvation is bestowed upon the Hell-deserving sinner when that sinner believes on Jesus and trusts in His shed blood. The only possible way to come into possession of a gift is to receive it from the giver." All of that might be true, depending upon how it is explained.
Greene's next heading reads, Three Things Make a Gift Possible. "First, there must be someone who is able to purchase the gift to be given, which means that he must also be unselfish and willing to give the gift." God "provided enough grace and supplied enough blood to save the entire world if the world would receive Him by faith."
Greene continues. "Second, to make a gift possible, there must be a gift to give; and Jesus was that Gift -- the only Gift God could give to settle the sin question." "Third, before giving can be complete, there must be someone to receive the gift; and that is where man comes in. Man is the recipient of God's gift."
The crux of Green's message comes in the last paragraph of the section:
We need only receive the finished work of Jesus, and God will save us for Jesus' sake. The only way for any sinner to be saved is to accept God's gift, the salvation purchased at the cost of the precious blood of God's only begotten Son.
Is what Greene preached correct? There is no doubt that our salvation, justification, depends on the finished work of Jesus and His precious blood. However, nowhere does the Bible teach that justification or salvation comes by receiving those two things. They are necessary for salvation, but salvation will not result from receiving them. Someone must believe in Jesus Christ or receive Jesus Christ, which is to "believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God." When someone receives Jesus Christ, He receives Jesus Christ for Who He is, Lord and God and Savior. When someone receives Jesus Christ, he turns from his way to the Lord's way, from his sin to the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
TSTL adds a final section to Greene's article, entitled, Receive God's Free Gift, which reads:
You have just read "God's Plan of Salvation" by Oliver B. Greene. He has very carefully explained God's plan, showing why salvation must be a free gift and how God can justly offer it as a gift.
Will you call upon Him now? From your heart say this prayer sincerely and with a repentant spirit.
Dear God, I'm a sinner headed for Hell, and I need to be saved. I cannot save myself, but I know You can do it for me. I do believe that Jesus in His death, burial, and resurrection paid my sin debt and purchased salvation for me. I believe it, and right now I submit myself in full trust to Him. Please, God, forgive my sin and save me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
If you have at this moment turned to Christ in faith and received Him as Saviour, would you fill out the decision form and mail it to me so that I can pray for your success in your new Christian life?
TSTL uses the words "repentant spirit," as its only representation of repentance, which is in tune with its regular understanding of repentance being merely a change of mind about belief. Greene himself doesn't use the word repentance in his sermon. He doesn't include it at all. By the time someone finishes reading his article, he wouldn't know what it is to receive Jesus Christ or to believe in Jesus Christ. From what I've read of TSTL, it doesn't understand that itself.
Salvation is characterized as a free gift in scripture, but if you get wrong how that gift is received, then you still don't have the gospel. TSTL gets it wrong again and again.
