I remember the first time someone asked me if I believed in the once saved, always saved doctrine. It was completely foreign to me. I had grown up hearing about things like backsliding and falling away.
But I didn’t just hear about it once. It was like it came up six or seven times within the same month. Enough that I felt I shouldn’t discount it, but no one took the time to explain it to me, so I was baffled.
I could explain why I believed the way I believed, but the would just roll their eyes at me and give me a short, half-sentence reason they were right and I was wrong. I could back mine up with Scripture and they didn’t even try. They felt like they didn’t need to because they were right and I was wrong. It was beyond frustrating. Mainly, because I thought they might be right, but I wasn’t sure why.Once we're saved, we're always saved… right? Click To Tweet
Once Saved, Always Saved
Which brings me to today’s featured post. Ashley found herself in a very similar situation. Only she was much younger than I was… younger and smarter.
Instead of getting flustered, Ashley dug into God’s Word. And what she discovered there is the answer all of us need. Find out what it is by visiting her website, His Sparrow Blog.
