Thirty Seven things which accompany Salvation.

By L.S. Chafer; R.B. Thieme Jr.; Roger Price
I take no credit for researching this list, merely it’s transcription editing and validation.
The proceeding list is compiled from work done by L.S. Chafer, R.B. Thieme Jnr, and Roger Price (Chichester Christian Fellowship, UK). It is not intended as a ‘formula’, merely as a bible study guide.
Niether do I lay claim to it’s completeness.

I do however, pray that it will be a blessing and encouragement to all those who read it. I thank God for the wonderous plan of Salvation, it’s revelation in the Word of God, and for efforts of faithful Christian servants such as those listed above. Finally, I invite further bible study in expanding / revising the list.
