Almost Christian Discovered
Share |

The Almost Christian Discovered by Matthew Mead is a classic work written in 1661. The primary doctrine which Mead considers is this: “There are very many in the world that are almost, and yet but almost Christians; many that are near heaven, and yet are never the nearer; many that are within a little of salvation, and yet shall never enjoy the least salvation; they are within sight of heaven, and yet shall never have a sight of God.” Mead looks at twenty signs which most would clearly say were true of Christians and then shows plainly, using biblical examples, how each one of them may be equally true of non-Christians. Some of those signs are: A man may have much knowledge; he may know much of God, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may go far in opposing his sin, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may hate sin, and be but almost a Christian; A man may have great hopes of heaven, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may be under great and visible changes, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may be much in prayer, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may have faith, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may have a love to the people of God, and yet be but almost a Christian; A man may obey the commands of God, and yet be but almost a Christian.” John MacArthur has written of The Almost Christian Discovered: “This volume offers a much needed antidote to the shallowness and flipancy that characterizes today’s Christianity. It contrasts sharply with the modern tendency to embrace as a brother or sister in the faith everyone who names the name of Christ. It sounds an alarm that few today would dare even whisper. In fact, The Almost Christian Discovered provides sobering proof of how far the contemporary church had slipped from the moorings of her heritage.” Newly typeset with archaic spellings changed.
