The doctrine of “eternal security” (sometimes described as “once saved—always saved”) is widely accepted with Christianity. There are however some who deny this important teaching of Scripture—by pulling verses out of their context to make them say something other than intended. In this series we look at what the Word of God has to say about the subject. “Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy” (Jude 24).
What is your definition of “have” / “has”?
