We are eternally secure in Christ, but only if we have a vital relationship with him. Nowhere does it teach that we are secure regardless of how unfaithful, unbelieving and disobedient we are.
There are two Gospels being preached today:
Ø Salvation by Grace through Faith
o Faith is manifest in obedience… belief=> obedience.
o Gospel of self-sacrifice, self-denial, changed behavior and obedience.
o Run the risk of being labeled a legalist.
Ø Salvation through Grace alone
o Gospel that ignores the need to be a New Creation and downplays the responsibility of humankind.
o Bible always talking about people making choices
