Image .....Selected Scriptures

At some time in your Christian life you may have struggled with questions like:
When a sinner is saved, who chooses whom—does God choose the sinner, or the sinner choose God?
Did Christ die for the sins of everyone, or just the people He saves?
The vast majority of those kinds of thorny, persistent, mind-boggling questions are directly related to the sovereignty of God, election, predestination, perseverance, and the issue of “free will.”
Those, of course, are doctrines associated with Calvinism. All are vital to a sound, biblical understanding of the gospel, but they are not without difficulty.
In The Doctrines of Grace, John MacArthur takes you to God’s Word and walks you through challenging truth that’s often neglected, maligned, or mischaracterized,
but is critical for every Christian to understand. This series will help you come to grips with what you believe about God, the gospel, and the nature of man.

perseverance of the saints / the doctrine of eternal scurity

The Westminster Confession of Faith ----- 5 year study and colaboration / dialog ... a statement of doctrine

The Confession says this - and I quote.
“They whom God hath accepted in his beloved Son effectually called and sanctified by his Spirit can neither totally nor finally fall away from a state of grace,
but shall certainly persevere therein to the end and be eternally saved.”

Nevertheless, believers may, through the temptations of Satan and of the world, through the prevalency of corruption remaining in them, through the neglect of their

means of preservation, fall into grievous sins and for a time continue therein, whereby they incur God’s displeasure and grieve his Holy Spirit, come to be deprived of

some measure of their graces and comforts, have their hearts hardened and their consciences wounded, hurt and scandalize others, and bring temporal judgments

upon themselves.”

John 5:24 ----- Truly, truly I say to you,
he who hears my Word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and does not come into judgment,
but has passed out of death into life.

John 3:16-18 ----- For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
He who believes in him is not judged, or condemned.

John 6:37 ----- All that the Father gives me shall come to me,
and the one who comes to me I will certainly not cast out.
For I have come down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me, and this is the will of him who sent me,
that of all that he has given me, I lose none, but raise it up on the last day.

John 10:27-29 ----- My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish,
and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.
My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father's hand,
I and the Father are one.

John 4:14 ----- Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.
But the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

1 Corinthians 1:8-9 ----- confirmed to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-25 ----- Now, may the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely.
May your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Faithful is he who calls you and he also will bring it to pass.

1 John 2:19 ----- They went out from us, but they were not really of us.
If they had been of us, they would have remained with us.
They went out in order that it might be shown they are not all of us.
