I believe that once a person becomes a genuine Christian, they can never “lose” their salvation. They are saved by grace and they are kept by the power of God. Along that line, I recently read Charles Stanley’s book Eternal Security: Can We Be Sure. In the book, Stanley shares about growing up in a Pentecostal Holiness Church that did not believe in the eternal security of the believer. Not only did the church not believe that a person that is saved is always saved, they often preached against that doctrine.
Stanley’s book is well written and the doctrine of the eternal security of the believer is strongly supported. The book is understandable and written to a wide audience.
Do you believe that you can “lose” your salvation? Well, so did Charles Stanley! But in the book, he documents how he came to believe differently when he began to dig into the Scriptures.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue of eternal security, I believe the book will be a blessing to you. Pick up a copy today and decide about this doctrine for yourself.
