"I Believe in Jesus, Not Doctrine"

For Dr. Armstrong and all those who claim to believe in Jesus, but don't want to talk about doctrine:

You cannot separate what a man believes from what he is. For this reason doctrine is vitally important. Certain people say ignorantly, "I do not believe in doctrine; I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; I am saved, I am a Christian, and nothing else matters". To speak in that way is to court disaster, and for this reason, the New Testament itself warns us against this very danger. We are to guard ourselves against being "tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine", for if your doctrine goes astray your life will soon suffer as well.

-- Martyn Lloyd-Jones (HT Old
