Rick5 Stars Out Of 5Kept for JesusFebruary 16, 2022RickSam Storms provides a clear New Testament teaching about a true believer's assurance of salvation. Given that many teachings on the subject are centered more on experience than Scripture, this book helps dispel much of the confusion that too many Christians are plagued with in today's culture. This is a must read and I recommend it for the new as well as the seasoned Believer. One of the reasons many Christians do not more fervently share the lifesaving Gospel is because of their own lack of confidence in it.
CaseyCovenant5 Stars Out Of 5One of the best books ever written on the security of God's elect sheep!March 3, 2017CaseyCovenantQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Storms has done it again with this wonderful book. He deals with all of the relevant texts of scripture that talk about eternal security and the texts that synergists/Arminians/Wesleyans/Pentecostals like to use to attack eternal security. The implication that these Christians must accept is that God fails to ultimately save, guard, and protect His children to the very end, He fails to secure their perseverance in the faith (If you reject the Bible's teaching on eternal security). You can have assurance of salvation for today but maybe not tommroow, who knows maybe God will fail to keep you tomorrow and you'll lose your salvation. For the synergist God can and has failed in some cases to finish what He started in saving His sheep. Jesus can never finally and totally lose one of His sheep. He will cause them to walk in holiness and He will keep them and preserve them. Everyone and especially pastors should read this book.
The Biblical Basis For Eternal Security Is So Clear!: Gen 7:16, Job 1:8-12, Ps 19:13; 37:23-25, 28; 94:14, Ezek 36:27, Jer 32:40, Isaiah 48:9-11, Matt 7:15-23; 13:18-23; 24:24, John 3:15-16; 4:14; 5:24; 6:35-40, 44, 51, 54; 8:31-32; 10:27-30; 11:25; 14:16-17; 17:9-26, Luke 22:31-34, Eph 1:13-14; 4:30, Heb 6:9; 7:25; 10:14; 12:2-7, Phil 1:6; 2:12-13, 2 Tim 2:16-19; 4:18, Tit 1:15-16, 1 Thess 5:23-24, 1 Cor 1:7-9; 15:10, Jude 1:1, 24, 1 Pet 1:3-9, 23, 2 Pet 1:10, 1 John 2:19, Rom 4:3-9; 5:1-10; 6:1-23; 8:1-2; 8:28-39; 11:29, 1 John 3:8-10; 5:18-19
contemplativereflections4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: Kept for JesusMarch 25, 2015contemplativereflectionsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This review was written for Kept for Jesus: What the New Testament Really Teaches about Assurance of Salvation and Eternal Security - eBook.In "Kept for Jesus," Sam Storms tackles the critical topic of the saints' assurance and perseverance in a readable way. The book focuses on exploring the passages of Scripture that are most often attributed to this important doctrine. While discussing the different perspectives of perseverance, Storms unapologetically argues for the Reformed tradition throughout the book. In the first half, Storms lays the groundwork by explaining how God's love and grace keep all those that are His till the very end. Drawing from different texts and contemporary illustrations, the author makes a convincing argument that there is no reason a genuine believer should ever worry that he or she will lose their salvation as God is the One who emboldens and empowers the Christian to believe and persevere in their faith. Through a pastoral approach, Storms offers comforting words to those who doubt their assurance while staunchly warning readers against the dangers of antinomianism. In the second half of the book, Storms investigates the challenging portions of Scripture where the eternal status of Christians seems to be questionable. In each passage, Storms gathers the wisdom of different scholars in considering the various positions that could be considered in each passage. I appreciate how Storms attempts to remain objective and provide perspectives that lead me to think more deeply on these passages. Despite not being able to prove the Reformed viewpoint conclusively on all the passages, Storms appeals the reader to consider God's character and the entire counsel of God in thinking through the doctrine of assurance and perseverance. Given His faithful nature and everlasting love for His elect, Storms asserts that those who are genuine believers have no fear that they will ever be cast away from God.
I would recommend this book for those who are unfamiliar with this important topic that Christians need to wrestle with. Storms' writing style is accessible and the tone of the book is pastoral allowing lay people to easily follow the arguments. The fact that Storms insists on working through tough passages of Scripture is admirable and will allow readers to gain a birds-eye view on the key arguments of the text. After reading this book, I cannot help but praise God for His loving kindness and amazing grace in saving and keeping His sheep safe in His arms.

Brazencross1 Stars Out Of 5Kept for JesusMarch 24, 2015BrazencrossI find that mainline protestants have to be constantly assured that they can't lose their salvation, they KNOW something is VERY WRONG and there are a great many reasons for that in the bible. You must discard just about everything Jesus said, along with most of the New Testament to hold on to that false teaching.
