A Good Response to Harry Ironside's Book on Eternal Security Dec 16, 2006
Christians have debated for centuries whether or not a believer in Christ is once saved, always saved. W.T Purkiser responds to a simarlly titled book written by Harry Ironside, and he concludes that instead of preaching eternal security, we should be preaching INTERNAL security. He discusses the New Testament and the Old Testament evidence, showing that the believer in Christ is secure as long as he abides in Christ.
Purkiser does a good job of championing the Arminian view against the Calvinist view. As for me, I trust Christ to carry my salvation on to completion (Philippians 1:6), and yet I also recognize that He is calling me to work out what He is working within (Philippians 2:12-13).
Read this book, along with Wayne Grudem's chapter on this subject in his Bible Doctrine book, and you will have a good overall perspective on this issue.
