Eternal Security has always been a tough subject because it’s impact on our everyday life is significant. It affects, how we act, how we view others, and how we view the scriptures.
Let us first take a look at the three scenarios that exist for this argument (assuming I’m not missing anything). Usually three different opinions can be supported by scripture. 1) Once saved always saved based on God’s promises. 2) Once saved you can still turn your back on God because of free will (conditional salvation). 3) Once saved you are a new creation and will not be able to turn from God. I am not necessarily advocating any of these 3, just listing them for the readers.
I am sure a more in-depth examination could be had on this subject. This is just an overview. If you wish to add to the discussion please use the comments section below.
