Welcome to “Seek & Find with Dr. Marc Rivera,” where we explore the big questions of faith, life, and meaning. In today’s episode, we’ll be diving into a topic that has sparked controversy and debate among Christians for centuries: “once saved, always saved” or the belief that salvation cannot be lost.
The concept of eternal security is grounded in the Christian doctrine of justification, which holds that believers are made righteous through faith in Christ. However, there are different interpretations of the biblical passages that relate to the issue, and these interpretations have led to varying theological positions.
Some Christians believe that once a person has truly been saved, they cannot lose their salvation no matter what they do, because their salvation is secured by the grace of God. Others believe that a person’s salvation is conditional on their ongoing faith and obedience to God, and that a person can fall away from their salvation if they reject or turn away from God.
In this episode, we’ll be exploring the biblical and theological basis for the belief in eternal security, as well as the perspectives of those who hold different views. We’ll also be discussing the controversy surrounding this topic, and how it has impacted the way that Christians understand their relationship with God and the role of faith and obedience in the Christian life.
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and join us as we delve into this important and fascinating topic.
