Wednesday Testimony – Leonard Ravenhill 

This short video below does an excellent job depicting Leonard Ravenhills conversion and life. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a conversion story in Ravenhills own words, if you know where one is I would be blessed to hear of it. I realize Ravenhill was an Armenian. I think perhaps it’s like the Armenian leaning brothers and sisters that love a good Spurgeon sermon, as a Calvinistic leaning believer I do love a good Ravenhill sermon. Am I the only one? As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Thanks, sister. Lloyd-Jones called himself a “Calvinist Methodist” because he was Calvinist in theology but desired to be on fire for the Lord and to pursue holiness like the Wesleyans. I love my Arminian brethren although their doctrine that a genuine believer can lose their salvation is very dangerous because it seems to make works part of justification. Also, as we know, being “on fire” for the Lord can drift into experientialism and emotionality. Then there’s the apostolic gifts of the spirit being practiced today. I get Lloyd-Jones’s point which is why I walk down the center line of the Calvin-Arminian debate.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, brother! I didn’t know MLJ felt that way also, very fascinating. The sovereignty of God in salvation is why I could never count myself as an Armenian. It is, like you’ve said, a dangerous doctrine. Particularly in light of mans desire to earn what God freely gives. God bless you brother, grace to you!

  2. I hear references to Ravenhill favorably among Calvinists like how AW Tozer is mentioned favorably but that’s a good point of how Spurgeon is often a Calvinists that even an Arminian likes to read…
