Salvation is a gift from God that cannot be taken away. When a person is saved, he is always saved. Nothing can separate him from eternal life in Christ and he can live with full assurance of Heaven as his future home.
"Nobody ever accuses Jesus of lying. Truth is always the barometer of innocence. You can lie with your mouth; you can lie with your actions; you can lie by beguiling; you can lie with deception—truth never allows you to do any of that.
It is great that you have this on your side. Everybody always believes Jesus told the truth, and that is a perfect lead in to take them to the Bible and show them the truth Jesus told. “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” This is the perfect antidote to the false doctrine that all paths lead to God.
You can never underestimate the effects of sin and you can never overestimate the value of truthfulness. We can claim a saving gospel because Jesus always told the truth." (excerpted from the sermon Agonizing Admission)
