Great Sermon! How can so many Christians be so aggressively opposed to such a thorough, clear, encouraging, hope filled, Bible unifying, God glorifying message as the message of eternal security. To put it crassly, I think man can't handle the idea of God getting all the credit. Time and time again throughout Christendom's history and present circumstance, men of position try to assert themselves in some way, shape or form as additional mediators between men and God. We are to bow to no man, only Christ is worthy. I feel so free because I feel no need to live up to the demands of men but rather am motivated by the indwelling Holy Spirit of Christ, towards what is truly love.
Losing salvation is a convenient idea for those preachers who have synthetic authority masking the fact that their gospel is false, and their congregations are depressed.
