It appears George may not have read the book before passing judgement. Dr. Stanley in no way attempts to say you can ignore sin after salvation. Please give it a read if you are seriously looking for encouragement and comfort in knowing you are secure in Christ, and if you would like to hear the explanation before you condemn it.
The Bible says in Hebrews 12:14 that without holiness no one will see the Lord. If you want eternal security accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior AND live a holy, repentant life. You cannot commit sin after sin without confessing them and make it to Heaven. To believe otherwise is to distort scripture. If you ignore sins after being born again you are trampling underfoot the precious blood of Jesus. Read Jude 4; 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:5-7; Rev. 21:8; 1 Jn. 2:3,4; 1 Jn. 3:10.
Dr. Stanley does a very good job of backing uphis view of eternal security. He also dealswith the verses in the Bible that others useto deny eternal security and explains why hebelieves that the verses are not written forthat reason.It will help to settle the questions thatyou have so that you can have peace on thevital question of the security that allbelievers have in Christ.
I have always listened eagerly to Dr. Charles Stanley. I have just started reading the book and find his reasons for Eternal Security compelling and assuring. Knowing this, I can relax in the Lord instead of fretting over every sin or defect in my character. I am covered with the Blood of the Lamb now and forever. My father just recently entered his home in heaven. What peace and joy I have knowing that he is at home with the Lord Jesus Christ, my Savior and his Savior.Thank God for people like Charles Stanley.Cindy
Dr. Stanley's clear and sound teaching of God's Word helps clear the doubts and questions of those who believe you can fall from Grace... So many are living in doubt and discouragement and yet the Gospel of Jesus Christ is one of hope, encouragement, security and freedom from the bondage of sin and man's requirements. If the message of the Lord's is positive and the doctrine of those spreading doubt and discouragement is negative... then where does such a doctrine come from?? It's a counterfeit teaching and I believe Dr. Stanley does an excellent job addressing the issue.
