The Teachings of

Zane Hodges, Joseph Dillow, Robert Wilkin
(The Grace Evangelical Society)

and the extreme teachings of J. D. Faust

Saved But Not Led?


"For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Rom. 8:14).

The Teaching of Zane Hodges and Joseph Dillow

The fruitful believer
The partaker or heir
The believing believer
The overcomer

The barren believer
The carnal one (non-heir)
The saved person who stops believing
The non-overcomer

This faithful believer is led by the Spirit of God. He is a son of God indeed!

This unfaithful believer is not led by the Spirit. He is a son of God but he is not a son of God indeed.


    See Dillow’s discussion of the two sons on page 368 and following. Again we see the constant attempt by Dillow and Hodges to divide all saved people into two distinct classes. Romans 8:14 says nothing about being "a son indeed." It simply says that "as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." It’s unthinkable that Christ, the good Shepherd, should not lead His sheep! All of His sheep are LED. And all that are LED are His sheep, His sons. "All the way My Saviour leads me!" Compare John 10:27.
