Standing in the Judgment

Part 2

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves?


In a survey conducted in the US where people were asked to name one of the Ten Commandments, a top answer was “God helps those who help themselves.” This idea typically refers to a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” attitude and seems to resonate with the intrepid, independent American spirit. And the response to this survey indicates it as a notion that’s baked into the fabric of American culture--but is it Biblical? Isn’t salvation a work completely of God? Is there a part for us to play too?
