A Good Man Lost, a Bad Man Saved
Author: John R. Rice
In a world that says, Get good to become saved, Dr. Rice shows the reader that Christ taught just the opposite - get saved to become good.
In this powerful pamphlet, the author explains the parable of two men who went to the temple to pray. One was a man of high moral standards who knew there was a God and had come to the temple to pray. And yet he left as a lost man. The second man - a bad man - frankly admitted that he was a sinner. And yet he left the temple as a saved man for all eternity.
Dr. Rice states, "When Jesus preached and taught among men on earth, He found that there were many 'which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others.' To them He spoke this parable. If He preached in America today, He would need to preach it again!"
