Have you ever seriously considered what salvation really is? Do you struggle with doubts about whether you are saved, or whether you ever could be saved?
If you’re not quite clear about what eternal security or assurance of salvation means to you, and how that relates to what God expects of you, you’re not alone. But God did not leave us to wander in confusion on this vital issue.
Who can be saved? Can someone who believes in Jesus ever be lost? What does the Bible really say about the Reformed theology of salvation known as Calvinism? These are the questions Paul Shirk addresses in our latest article, An Examination of Calvinism. Whether you’re familiar with Calvinism or not, this article speaks directly to every believer—and everyone who wants to believe—about salvation.
It is our hope and prayer that this article will be a stepping stone in your journey to drinking freely from the water of life by fully receiving and embracing God’s gracious gift of salvation. Our primary goal is not to lift up or put down Calvinism (or any other theological system per se), but to point each reader to the living Christ, Who continues to offer the invitation: “Let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17)
