John Gill on Philippians 3:13


When I read John Gill's commentary on Philippians 3:15, I was shocked that he would be so blatant in his heresy:

and if in anything ye be otherwise minded; as to seek for justification by the works of the law, or partly by Christ and partly by the law, and to imagine and expect perfection in this life:

God shall reveal even this unto you; such errors will be made manifest sooner or later; the day will declare them, and such wood, hay, and stubble, will be burnt up by the fire, which will reveal every man's work, 1Co 3:12.

Gill believed that the errors of justification by the works of the law or justification partly by Christ and partly by the law or perfectionism were "wood, hay, and stubble"! And just to make sure, I went over to see what Gill said about "wood, hay, and stubble" in 1 Corinthians 3:12:

wood, hay, stubble; by which are meant, not heretical doctrines, damnable heresies, such as are diametrically opposite to, and overturn the foundation; for one and the same man builds the former, as these, and is himself saved at last; neither of which is true, of such that deliver doctrines of devils

So he believed that the errors of justification by the works of the law or justification partly by Christ and partly by the law or perfectionism were NOT heretical doctrines, damnable heresies, doctrines of devils, such as are diametrically opposite to, and overturn the foundation!!!

Incredible!!!
