There are many reasons people do not believe in the eternal security of the believer. In the next several articles, I want to address some of these reasons, though not particularly in any order.
In the first article in this series on eternal security, I set out to establish the theological basis for any clear understanding of the subject. That basis is that God is sovereign in all things, including salvation. Before moving on to the subject of sin and of man’s need for redemption, I want to add one additional thought to the concept of God.
Recently, I had an extended though pleasant discussion about theology with a new friend from a Pentecostal background who asked me if I believed in "once saved, always saved."
