In continuing with our blog’s “wee-kids Wednesdays” here’s a review of a Christian Children’s book.

Ken Ham and Cindy Malott. Answers Book for Kids Volume 3: God and the Bible.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, March 27th 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Out of the first four volume in the Answers Book for Kids series by Ken Ham this is probably my favorite one thus far, exceeding my delight of the third volume.  A big reason is the topic of book four: Sin, Salvation and the Christian life.  These themes are related to the Gospel and one can never go wrong with going over the Gospel to one’s children!

For this is the will of God your sanctification

ὑμῶν ☉›

ELABORATION ‹☉ ἀπέχεσθαι ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς πορνείας”
you abstain from immorality

Here are some observations:

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.
