Last month I posted Part I of a two part post (see here) on eternal security. I have been finding it difficult to motivate myself to complete the second post for which I apologize. So without making any more excuses I am going to put up the second, and final, post and bring this to completion.
The book “Eternal Security Proved!” by Phillip M. Evans has a lot of good arguments that the doctrine of eternal security (once saved always saved) is true. I do understand that by the time most people will read the quote below that their minds will already be made up. This post is really for those few who are undecided and are looking for some information in support of eternal security. I hope this extended quote is of use to you. If you have questions please leave a comment and I will do my best to provide a clear and competent answer.

God’s fiery judgment was about to come on Israel, for as a nation they had rejected and crucified their Messiah. For the saints to revert back to the old covenant sacrifices would mean that they would place themselves literally in the company of God’s enemies who were about to be destroyed. They would face the same destruction that would be revealed in 70 AD. (more…)
