still seeking

I believe salvation, justification, regeneration, and adoption are God’s work. I believe, as Paul wrote in Romans 5, “we are made righteous by Christ’s obedience.” Therefore, I want to believe in absolute security of salvation.

I want to believe believers could fall away, but won’t.

I want to believe that God’s grace prevents believers from apostasy, even though we are fully capable of it.

I believe that “victory over sin” is not the mark of salvation; we will continue to struggle with sin. However, our struggle is for holiness. To be holy as He is holy because “In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation – having also believed – you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise.”
