Shallow Preaching = Shallow Conversions

"Shallow preaching that does not grapple with the terrible fact of man's sinfulness and guilt, calling on 'all men everywhere to repent,' results in shallow conversions; and so we have myriads of glib-tongued professors today who give no evidence of regeneration whatever. Prating of salvation by grace, they manifest no grace in their lives. Loudly declaring they are justified by faith alone, they fail to remember that 'faith without works is dead,' and that justification by works before men is not to be ignored as though it were in contradiction to justification by faith before God." (H.A. Ironside, Except Ye Repent)
