What Is Salvation? (In two minutes) by Paul Washer


8 thoughts on “What Is Salvation? (In two minutes) by Paul Washer

  1. I was disappointed to hear nothing of ‘obedience’ here. Obedience seems to be evidence of salvation – I John 2:3-6 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands.
    The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
    But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:
    Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.


    1. You are right that obedience must be emphasized. Usually Paul does just that. This video isn’t meant to be a complete representation either of the Gospel or of Paul Washer’s teaching. In the video that brought him to the forefront as a preacher he preached hard against the modern church’s lack of understanding of the necessity of obedience. I posted this video because, as to what it is–a very short video on salvation–it is good. On its own it doesn’t go far enough but it really isn’t meant to stand alone. However many of Paul’s other videos offer a complete understanding of obedience to the Gospel. Thank you for taking the time to respond. May God bless you! 🙂

  2. Obedience is a by product of being hand picked for salvation. As we know, we can do nothing to earn salvation, but as through my story, God broke me and showed me my sin and rebellion in light of His holiness. Obedience?…that was a natural by product of having my eyes opened. How can I not obey, when God in His love and grace, did not strike me down but embraced me and saved me in spite of myself? Paul Washer knows salvation and can explain salvation better than most I have ever heard. He, more than most others knows for a FACT that obedience is an integral part of salvation, but obedience as a by product of the Holy Spirit, not of man’s works.

  3. To think that God went through a room, as it were, and said, “No, no, no…yes. This one I will save.”

    Three people die every second in this world. I could be next, or you or anyone else. We don’t know when our time is up. We truly don’t know if we have another 10, 20, 50 or even a hundred years; we just don’t know. Today is the day of salvation. If God has picked you (in spite of yourself), come to Him without delay. The only reason a man can come to God is because he has been compelled to by the work of the Holy Spirit…so come.

    1. Hi Joyce,

      Looked up the link you sent along and yes, that was a good article. Couldn’t have put it better myself if I tried. I posted an excerpt on my blog with links back to the site and hopefully this helps others understand salvation the way God intended it to be. Bless you and thanks again.
