Excursus
• God keeps saved to the end the people He has saved.
• John 10:28-30
• Romans 8:28-39
• Hebrews 7:23-28
• Ephesians 1:13-14
• No perseverance indicates no salvation.
• The Bible teaches preservation of the elect. Apostasy is only possible for someone who has not been truly saved.
• So long as a professing Christian is in a state of carnality, no pastor or Christian friend, has the slightest ground for holding that carnal person.
