Beware Of False Teacher Dan Corner

Romans 4:4-7, “Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.”

The inspired Holy Bible is very clear in our text passage that God's righteousness is not by works, because that would make salvation of debt instead of grace. The lost sinner who comes to God as an admitted guilty sinner, and by faith receives Christ's sacrifice on the cross as payment for their sins, believing that Jesus raised up from the dead three days later, that sinner's faith is counted for righteousness. Nothing more is required or allowed by God for salvation. Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do.

In sharp contrast, Dan D. Corner of teaches something very different, effectively denying God's imputed righteousness. According to Mr. Corner, you must also live a holy life to get to Heaven. Read for yourself his blasphemous plan of damnation...
In a nutshell, the teaching of imputed righteousness from the eternal security view point is: a person once saved is holy and righteous without living holy and righteously. For people who believe in that false version of imputed righteousness, a Christian takes on Jesus' righteousness at the point of salvation and this righteous and holy standing before God can never be changed even by the most vile and heinous evils that could afterwards be committed. They also tell us sometimes: God can't see the Christian's sin. Instead, he only sees Jesus' righteousness, blood and grace, but never the sin! To them, Jesus' holiness and blamelessness is the Christian's forever holiness and blamelessness. That is their teaching of imputed righteousness, which is both demonic and lethal.

No, what Dan Corner is errantly teaching is demonic and lethal. Mr. Corner is foolishly saying that you cannot go to Heaven without works. That contradicts even the plainest teaching of the Scripture. ...

Romans 3:23-26, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.”

Titus 3:5-7, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Romans 6:1, “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
The more that a believer chooses to sin, the more God's saving grace will abound, so that there will never be any risk of losing God's free gift of eternal life. Dan Corner is 100% wrong!!! I feel sorry for him, because unless Dan repents of his counterfeit ideas of salvation, he won't make it to Heaven when he breathes his last dying breath someday. Only an unsaved man has the wrong mindset that you must perform self-righteous WORKS to get to Heaven.

When some people asked Jesus what “works” they should do for God, Jesus had this to say in John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. The ONLY work which God expects us to do to be saved is to BELIEVE ON JESUS!!! Dan Corner is preaching another gospel.

Pilgrim's Progress author, John Bunyan (1628-1688), well understood this great Bible truth. The following helpful quote from John Bunyan is my favorite preacher quote:
“If you do not put a difference between justification wrought by the man Christ without and sanctification wrought by the Spirit of Christ within, you are not able to divide the Word aright; but contrariwise, you corrupt the Word of God, and cast stumbling blocks before the people.” —John Bunyan
Sadly, ungodly preachers across the world today are mixing and combining sanctification with justification, and in so doing they are corrupting the Word of God and casting stumblingblocks before the people. A doctrinally sound preacher will put a difference between SERVICE and SALVATION. He will put a difference between DISCIPLESHIP and SONSHIP. He will put a difference between JUSTIFICATION wrought without by the man Christ Jesus (Romans 5:1), versus the SANCTIFICATION wrought within by the Spirit of Christ (Romans 15:16).

The heresy of Lordship Salvation mixes sanctification with justification, and in so doing confuses people. I receive emails on a regular basis, just yesterday in fact, from frustrated people who ask me if they aren't saved because of the sins in their life. According to Dan Corner they are not saved. Dan says eternal security is conditional upon turning from your sins and living a holy life for God. But he cannot support such wicked claims with the Scripture.

Dear reader, your sinful bad habits have absolutely NOTHING to do with God's free gift of salvation. Until you begin to understand that God's gift of eternal life is not conditional upon the way you choose to live, you'll never find perfect peace in your soul. Listen carefully and please don't ever forget this—ETERNAL LIFE IS ETERNAL SECURITY!!! Eternal Life and Eternal Security are NOT two separate Bible doctrines, they are one and the same. In other words, if you already have eternal life you have eternal security.

Dan Corner sadly doesn't believe in the eternal security of the believer. That means he is not wholly trusting Christ's sacrifice on the cross as being sufficient to pay for his debt of sin. Thus, he cannot possibly be a born-again child of God, since he is not fully relying on Christ's finished work of redemption.

Hebrews 4:10-11 plainly teaches that we are saved by ceasing from our own works, and instead resting in Jesus for salvation. Jesus is our Sabbath Day today! God ceased from His 6 days of creative work, and completely rested on the seventh day. The Sabbath Day (a ceremonial law intended only for Old Testament Jews to keep), symbolized Jesus, in whom we completely rest for salvation. This is just another truth from the inspired Word of God which proves that works are not necessary or permitted to get to Heaven.

I hope and pray for Dan Corner to repent of his false hope and get saved before it is too late. Thank you for reading.
