Product Description

"Throughout his many years of teaching and preaching, Dale Moody has consistently warned Baptists that an anemic notion of 'eternal security' has displaced the biblical teaching of 'the perseverance of the saints.' In this passionate exhortation about the danger of apostasy, readers will hear what generations of students heard in Moody's classroom- a fresh examination of biblical texts too often neglected or domesticated for confessional purposes. Never one to mince words or to fail to point out his disagreements with other scholars, Moody's exegesis illumines the starkness of the warning and the urgent call to holiness in persevering faith." -Molly Marhall, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Dale Moody, taught for thirty seven years at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the last twenty seven as the Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology. His education includes Baylor University (B.A., 1941), Southern Seminary (Th.M., 1942; Th.D.,1947), and Oxford University (Ph.D.,1965). He has also studied at Columbia, Union Theological Seminary (with Tillich), Zurich (with Brunner), Basel (with Barth), and Heidelberg. In addition to teaching at Southern Seminary, Moody has taught at the Gregorian University in Rome and at the Institute for Advanced Theological Study in Jerusalem. Ordained as a Baptist minister in 1932, he has served churches in Texas, Indiana, and Kentucky.

    I 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.

    Moody 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.

    This 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.

    This book takes the position that you can lose your salvation. I bought it to "prove" eternal security to someone and it backfired on me.
