heaven, will enter and is therefore eternally secure.
2. Conditional security would mean that the "savee"
would keep himself saved by doing all he should be
doing and abstaining from all from which he should
abstain. That would be impossible.
3. There's no record in Scripture of anyone ever being
saved more than once. This implies that either there's
only one chance to "hold on" or else eternal security is
true. (In the chorus of the hymn "Ye Must Be Born Again"
the tenor sings, "ye must be born again". The bass
sings, "again" and "again" and "again". George
Boyajian quipped that he agrees with the tenor but he
disagrees with the bass.)
4. Salvation by grace and eternal security go together.
If salvation is by grace, eternal security naturally follows.
Salvation "by grace" means that salvation is something
that's done for us. If salvation could be lost, where
would be the salvation by grace in such an
5. If eternal salvation could end, the word "saved"
wouldn't really mean saved. It would only mean
probation. "Probation by grace" for eternal life isn't
taught in the Bible.
6. Eternal life is a present possession. It's bestowal
doesn't await physical death.
7. Eternal life cannot end. It isn't something separate
from the believer like a piece of clothing that can be put
on and taken off. If God gave someone only 5, 10 or 20
years of "eternal" life and then took it away, why would
He call it eternal?
8. To deny eternal security and at the same time to
believe ones self to be saved would be to say that one
is keeping himself saved. That is, he would be making
himself out to be his own savior.
9. Eternal security is in keeping with the gospel being
good news. Conditional security is not.
10. Eternal Security honors Christ by recognizing Him
as the only Savior.
