Many have always argued, “No man can be confident in his salvation.” But what does the Bible teach? Is there such teaching as “once saved, always saved?” What about perseverance? Edward and James discuss this important doctrine and how the believer should understand that security is all of God, not of man.
We live in a day and age where many cults exist. Sadly, many people don’t realize they are in a cult that has used the Scriptures for their own purposes and gain. Some use it for financial gain while others use it for the gain of self glory. Scripture reveals that in the redemption of His people, God has eliminated any possibility of “personal” boasting before Him in that He has purposed, provided and completed and work of redemption by His mercy (Grace) and nothing can thwart His work and no man can be lost if Christ has paid for their sins. This episode deals with the holistic teaching of God’s grace as effectual and the implications of its power.

For the most part of the 20th century, altar calls and other prominent “offers” of salvation have been utilized to draw millions to a so-called gospel only to see that a majority of those millions still have no assurance of eternal life. This podcast discusses this issue and what the church should understand in history and in practice of these techniques.

Most of all, the scripture teaches us what we should know about the traditions of men concerning the call to faith.
