Mankind has free will before initial salvation and also after salvation. Saved people can easily be deceived, turn to evil and then die spiritually. It is not God’s responsibility but it is man’s responsibility (under true Biblical grace) to hold on, keep what you have and continue to follow Jesus. Many fail this and therefore get back on the road to hell. A major advantage for the backslider to get off the road to hell is knowing that he is again on the road to hell. This is denied by the once saved always saved folks, and so multitudes continue to perish because of that teaching. Calvinism needs to be opposed for the sake of eternal souls because all five points are unscriptural, especially the last point known as eternal security or the perseverance of the saints.

What were the consequences of his great sin? Find out in this powerful audio message from Brother Dan Corner.
