Dake taught the opposite to Hagin in the area of salvation. Hagin did not teach that sin damns the soul of man and separates him from God as Dake taught.Spiritblade Disciple wrote: ↑Wed Dec 19, 2018 10:56 pmHagin's position, if I recall correctly, was to focus on the righteousness of the born again human spirit, regardless of how the flesh behaved and then to train the soul (mind/will/emotions) to be in agreement with what the Bible says about the born again man. Then, together, the human spirit and soul would overpower the flesh.
Hagin, unlike Dake, saw the wretched man of Romans 7 as a saved man who was flesh-ruled instead of spirit-ruled. Therefore, Hagin could accept a person as saved who was actively sinning, because it was the flesh that was sinning, not the human spirit (which was almost incapable of sin, once born again*).
* Hagin allowed for a person to willfully reject their salvation, if they met certain qualifications, such as being a mature believer. The immature could not lose their salvation.
Hopefully, I'm remembering what Hagin taught correctly.
Here is a excerpt from Hagin on rhema website (bolding is my emphasis):
"Whenever a person accepts Christ as his Savior, his spirit is recreated and his sins are remitted once and for all. You may wonder, What happens if the person misses it after he is born again? What if he sins? Any Christian who commits sins receives forgiveness. If he were to receive remission, everything he had ever done in the past—both good and bad—would be wiped out. Even his New Birth would be erased. But that is not the case, because the Christian—the person who is already born again—does not receive remission; he receives forgiveness.
Thank God for that word forgiveness. It is a fellowship word, speaking from a New Testament point of view. When a child of God sins, he breaks fellowship with the Father but he does not break relationship.
An example of this is when a husband and wife quarrel. They don’t break their relationship—they are still married. However, they have broken their fellowship, and they need to ask one another for forgiveness.
Similarly, when Christians sin, their fellowship with God is broken. They are still part of His family. They simply need to ask for forgiveness. Their way back into fellowship is found in First John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” When we do this, we once again stand in the presence of God as though we had never done wrong."
If unrighteousness is not of God, how would an unrighteous person still be "in the family" of God? That would imply that God's family is full of unrighteous people and not righteous saints. That would indicate that they are not made the righteousness of God through Christ.
