Eternal Salvation & Saved by Faith

Salvation

"The test of the Gospel is grace. If the message excludes grace, or mingles law with grace as the means either of justification or sanctification (Gal 2:21; 3:1-3), or denies the fact or guilt of sin, which alone gives grace its occasion and opportunity, it is 'a different' gospel, and the preacher of it is under the anathema of God" (Scofield Study Bible, footnote at Galations 1 8-9).

Eternal Salvation

I believe three of the best books ever written on the subject of salvation are:
  • God's Sovereign Grace, which explains God's sovereignty and Mans inability to come to saving faith by himeslf;
  • Justification by Faith, which shows how justification does not come from man's works, but faith, which is itself a gift from God; and also,
  • Drawn by the Father: A Study of John 6:35-45, which shows how Christ will never lose one of those whom God Himself has given to Him.
All three books (although out of print now) were written by James White, a Christian Apologist and Director of Alpha and Omega Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona.

Dr. S. Lewis Johnson has a very good study explaining the differences between the Armenian view of Salvation (that you can loose it) vs Eternal Salvation from his study of Hebrews (choose #16 "the Disaster of Dullness" a free Mp3 download).

Dr. J. Vernon McGee has a very good study on Is it Possible for a Saved Person Ever to Be Lost?

Saved by Faith

For a list of scriptures that explain salvation check out Saved by Faith Through Grace by Lori Eldridge.

Word of Truth ministries has numerous tapes by Chet McCalley that clearly outline Saved by Faith through Grace not by Works (see the series "Security of the Believer"). They also explain very clearly why Lordship Salvation is not Scriptural, i.e., "making" Christ Lord of your life before you become a believer.
