I want to thank God for using you to open my eyes to the true gospel taught by the original believers in Christ. Because of your book, The Believerís Conditional Security, I have come to not only love God more, but to fear Him as well, which was greatly needed in my walk with Christ. I was initially saved 3 years ago ... in jail. I was always taught that once I was saved, I could no longer lose my salvation. If I sinned I would be disciplined or killed and brought to heaven with the loss of rewards. This false teaching caused me to never once question my salvation. I later fell into sexual sin, drunkenness, partying and drugs, but still, I never once questioned my salvation! I had no willingness to repent or ask for forgiveness! I became another victim of the lie, "Ye shall not die"!
A Prisoner's Testimony
Later I was arrested again, and thanks to Godís mercy and kindness, I did repent and asked for forgiveness of my sins. Then God showed me your book and almost instantly it felt like scales were removed from my eyes. To look back at my fall now and realize how spiritually dead I was, sheds a whole new light on the patience, mercy, and love of God! To know He could have taken my life then and sent me to hell according to the true gospel of grace brings me to my knees with tears. Iíve never felt so alive in Christ as I do now and itís thanks to you and allowing God to work through you to expose this deceptive and destructive teaching!
I Thought Eternal Security Kept Me Safe As An Occasional Drunkard
I pray that God will pour out his blessings and shower you with his mercy and love and that He may continue to use you to change the lives of others like myself ... I am still currently incarcerated and we usually have a quick church service about 3 times a week ... almost every preacher or teacher who comes teaches eternal security! I have tried reasoning with them through Scriptures but Iím always attacked, not only by them but other inmates as well! I donít mind the persecution, but I canít stand to see others buy into the lie of OSAS as well as teach it! But God is good and He has used me to bring others to the truth of a conditional security. Praise God!
Again, I thank you...for the impact youíve made in my life and allowing me to be used by God like never before! ... may God continue to use you to contend for the faith.
