God causes to be proclaimed to us that there is nothing the corrupt intellect of man—an intellect fully darkened by sin and increasingly blinded by Satan—more readily does than carelessly and erroneously trust in the mere external proclamation of the gospel. Such a man considers it to be sufficient unto salvation that he has intellectually comprehended the gospel, and therefore, he has truly believed and will certainly procure eternal salvation and deliverance through Christ and by God’s grace.

This is the lamentable and wretched faith of almost all our Reformed lip confessors, who stake their immortal souls on such a faith and thus enter into eternity with a mere intellectual and superficial affirmation that Christ is their saviour and that they will certainly be delivered and saved by Him. Sadly, the majority of them will not discover their grievous error and dreadful self-deceit until, being actually in hell, they then find it to be eternally impossible for them to retrace their steps and to restore what is amiss.

For the reference, see Theodorus VanderGroe: The Reformed professor’s intellectual assent will not save him from hell.
