Without any question the most important issue determined during every person's life is where he or she will spend eternity. The Holy Scripture is the only reliable source of instruction on how that determination is made. Every person that is capable would be wise to do a serious personal study of Scripture to determine for themselves the "truth" about their own salvation. This topic holds the key to a person's eternal destiny and therefore far too important to be dependent on any other person's idea of how to "receive" salvation. This book is not a complete study of the salvation issue but it is meant to be of help in your study of the security aspect of salvation. It is vitally important to fully understand how salvation is received and the responsibilities that come with it. Basing your belief about this topic on just a few scriptures or even on the teaching of someone you respect could be a disastrous mistake. If you do just one in-depth Bible study, do it on the topic of salvation. Your eternal destiny depends on knowing, understanding, accepting and living the "truth" about this issue.
