The Absurdity of Rejecting Eternal Security
by Trevor McNamee
Please note,if loss of salvation was possible,ALL that God Had done in the Born Again saved person would have to be undone by God Himself.ie God saved us He would have to UN save us.
People who hold to loss of salvation,say its because of what we do,that would lead to loss of Salvation
NO,It is God who has to do it.We dont save ourselves,God does.Therefore if we cant save ourselves we cannot un save ourselves,God would have to do it.
They place a huge amount of power in their abilities to undo,overcome the power of God to undo what God has done.
See all the things that would have to be done to become UN saved.
Seriously ask yourself,am I placing myself above God in thinking I can do all this to become unsaved ? To undo what God has done,will do in the Born Again person

Everything in Romans 8 would have to be reversed by God
NONE of these things can seperate us from the Love of God,God would have to reverse this who statement so that all of them could seperate us from Gods love.
For I am persuaded, that neither
Nor principalities ,
nor things present
nor things to come,
nor anything else in all creation……..
Most people who say,that losing salvation is possible,is that what we do or dont do can seperate us.Problem with this is that,WE ARE of Creation,we are Created beings.
So not even we ourselves as created beings,can seperate us from the love of God
The true believer is safe and secure in Christ forever. The only other alternative is to say that God is guilty ofbreaking His Word repeatedly. Godforbid! Keep in mind, however, that the doctrine of eternal security does not give a person a license to sin. All of these statement and promises apply only to those who are in the family of God (regenerated/born again of God and true members of the body of Christ. Christ’s sheep are safe forever (John 10:27-28
“The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” (2 Tim. 2:19).
