Eternal Security
What is the doctrine?
“Eternal security is the present possession of
eternal life. In other words, from the point of
salvation, it is the irrevocable and unfailing
condition of eternal life guaranteed the true
believer in Christ in both time and eternity.”
Ankerberg and Weldon, Knowing the Truth About Eternal
Security, p. 5.
Why do we care?
“If salvation can be lost, it is vital that Christians
not be given a false sense of security. If
salvation is secure, it is vital that Christians not
anguish over a nonexistent possibility.”
Ankerberg and Weldon, Knowing the Truth About Eternal
Security, p. 5.
“…others do not believe the doctrine [of eternal
security] is scriptural because of the existence
of problem passages. But biblically, this is easily
resolved, because only one teaching can be
true. Either Christians can lose their salvation or
they cannot. Both teachings cannot be true”
Ankerberg and Weldon, Knowing the Truth About Eternal
Security, p. 10.
“Theologian Robert Glenn Gromacki is correct
when he writes, ‘I recognize that God is one and
that His revelation is harmonious with His
character. It is absolutely impossible to find
fifty passages that teach eternal security and
fifty others that deny it. The Bible teaches one
doctrine, not two contradictory positions. Only
one can be correct’ ”
Ankerberg and Weldon, Knowing the Truth About Eternal
Security, p. 14.

If the Bible:
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
F.
Reminds us that our salvation is conditional,
Gives us examples of those who did lose salvation,
Specifies actions that lead to loss of salvation,
Warns us not to lose salvation,
Instructs us how to avoid losing our salvation, and
Tells us what to do if we lose our salvation.
Then how can some say it is
“irrevocable and unfailing.”
