Purpose: In this session we will look at three New Testament words used to describe sin so that we understand more biblically what sin is and see sin the way God sees it.

Is Security of the Believer a License to Sin? 

I think anybody who reads here knows that I believe in the Eternal Security of the believer, Once saved always saved, or Perseverance of the Saints. I believe God’s Word clearly teaches that the salvation of a truly saved person will never be revoked, nor can it be taken from us. 

This is problematic for some, as many consider this doctrine to be nothing more than the granting of a license to run out and sin all they want. Sadly, many who oppose the Doctrine of Eternal Security are made to feel this way by the conduct and lifestyles of those professing to believe. Sadly, some do actually believe that salvation is no more than getting their ticket to heaven punched and that they can, in fact, do as they wish with no repercussions.

I posted a little ditty on our Facebook page and Twitter but I thought I post this on the blog as well.  (If you haven’t followed us on social media feel free to like and follow us).

It turns out this book, which was originally a sermon by Spurgeon, is also available as an audio on Youtube!  This is for those who are busy although I always prefer actual reading of a book more than listening to audiobooks if one can.

So here it is below:

how-do-you-combat-the-love-of-money

Last Sunday I posted “How do you tell if you are a lover of money?”  But I don’t want to just end with people feeling guilty and just be left there.  Today’s post I want to answer the question: “How do you combat the love of money?”

This is the first of two parts.  For today’s post we will focus more on means that are helpful in “putting off” the love of money.  Part two will then look at what we “put on” instead in place of the love of money.

“Put off” the love of money by these means (Acronym: MARK):

Tommorow is the Fourth of July which for Americans is our Independence Day.  It comes once a year but there is also another freedom in the spiritual realm, freedom from sin and what Christ has done for our freedom is celebrated not once a year but once a week.

Here’s a verse from Galatians 5:1=
