Default Re: Was Witness Lee a Calvinist?

The Calvinist view on rewards is that good works are necessary for final salvation, but according to A Puritan Theology (Mark Jones and Joel Beeke), "These works do not merit salvation, but they certainly will mark the difference between those in the church who loved Christ in sincerity (Eph. 6:24) and those who were only hypocrites. Those who performed good works in obedience to Christ can expect, according to Godís gracious covenant promise, to receive rewards based on their good works. In bestowing such rewards, Godís grace is magnified, for not only does He freely justify sinners by imputing to them the righteousness of Christ, but enables them by grace to do good works, and to reward them for the works they perform after having been justified."
