Karla Robinett1 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2009Karla RobinettI have struggled with this issue for many years being taught that one can lose their salvation. While I don't believe one can lose their salvation as one might lose their car keys, I do believe we must be diligent in our walk with the Lord against a subtle drifting that may end in walking totally away from the Lord,having our hearts hardened beyond repair. Dale Moody makes his case from scripture clear. Having said that, I don't think the Lord would have us wringing our hands over this issue as I have. He is capable of keeping us as we focus on him,not as a Divine bolt thrower but as one who loved us enough to die to keep us from hell. I other words there is a balance. I realize I have said much more than you asked for but I hope that this book and my thoughts will help others who have struggled between grace and loss of salvation.
Bob McCollough4 Stars Out Of 5October 25, 2003Bob McColloughMoody does not deal exhaustively with the issue of perseverance in this brief (73 pgs) and easy reading work. However, he deals with the issue enough to show that conditional security is the most prudent position to take in light of the Scriptural evidence (he only deals with Hebrews) and that the "once saved always saved" crowd is standing on very shaky scriptural ground as they teach their spiritually dangerous ear tickling doctrine. Moody rightly illustrates that when faced with the overwhelming Scriptural evidence for the conditional security position, the usual reaction of eternal security proponents is to resort to creedalism (while they continue to give lip service to sola scriptura)--using the creed as a tool with which to exclude you from their midst. Moody exposes their position as being either ignorance, obscurantism, or intellectual dishonesty.
Roy Ingle4 Stars Out Of 5May 21, 2001Roy IngleThis book does not prove you can lose your salvation but Moody does deal with texts that are often ignored by those who teach extreme "once saved, always saved" teachings. Moody writes not to argue that perseverance of the saints is wrong but rather he writes to show that true Christians will not live lives of sin and seek security. His premise is this: There is no security for those living in sin. Only the holy will be in heaven.
Gail3 Stars Out Of 5March 31, 2001GailThis book takes the position that you can lose your salvation. I bought it to "prove" eternal security to someone and it backfired on me.
