Watch as Trent Horn of Catholic Answers and Dr. James R. White of Alpha and Omega Ministries debate the theology surrounding the topic: “Can A Christian Lose Their Salvation?” This debate was moderated by Michael O’Fallon on January 18, 2017. Sovereign Alliance sponsored the event at the 2017 G3 Conference in Atlanta, Georgia with over 1,300 audience members in attendance.
The material principle of the Reformation was sola fide, justification by faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God alone. But the Reformed tradition likewise affirmed that since salvation was an act of God focused upon the elect, performed by the Son in obedience to the Father, as a divine act it cannot be reversed. That is, salvation cannot be lost, for to say otherwise is to say Christ can fail to do the will of the Father.
The Roman Catholic Church has historically affirmed the ability of the justified to lose the grace of justification through the commission of mortal sins. Few topics focus the attention more upon the grounds of salvation than the question, can it be lost in those who once are truly saved? This will be the focus of our debate.
Join us for a thorough debate with Dr. James White and Trent Horn as we openly discuss the issues surrounding this highly debated issue.

This week on Theology on the Go, our host, Dr. Jonathan Master is joined by Dr. Thomas J. Nettles, retired Professor of Historical Theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Dr. Nettles is regarded by some as one of the foremost Baptist historians in America today…
This week on Theology on the Go we are continuing a series on the Doctrines of Grace. This week Dr. Nettles has joined us to talk about the “P” in Perseverance of the Saints.
Now, grab that cup of coffee and meet us at the table!
That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21 (KJV)
It seems as though in the year 2015 there has been many challenges facing us as Christians, both from outside our walls and from within.
The church needs to be encouraged with the reminder of the steadfastness and surety of God’s reign through grace,
which will not be thwarted by sin nor traitors in our ranks.
If it would please the Lord, we are hoping to achieve several things with this year’s theme: REIGN of GRACE.
Beginning on Friday we hope to provide an overview concerning a very important way in how to understand God’s redemptive plan which is interwoven all throughout the Scriptures – the Covenant of Grace. This Covenant is central to the 1689 Baptist Confession and is sure to provide God’s people with confidence and renewed hope that the Lord fulfills His promises!
Then on Saturday, following the reassurance and reminder of the promises and plans made to Christ’s people, we will offer teachings that have a more practical mood, in hopes they may exhort, encourage and equip those in attendance to continue to fight the good fight,
and not to grow weary in well doing.
So then, please join us that we may continue steadfastly unto the end in the most holy faith which we confess.
Come, gather and meet new friends who share with you in precious like faith.
We are pleased to announce the release of RP15’s promotional video for the conference this October 9-10. RP15 is a free conference on the Doctrines of Grace with many of the leader pastors and scholars of our day. Registration is required so we can be better prepared to serve you this October. Please register today!
Richard Barcellos […] posted his lecture given to an ARBCA meeting […] on the Lord’s Supper as a means of grace. I’ve linked them below because I think that they are quite instructive. Because they are his lecture notes, they are mostly point form. But he gives a good argument for understanding the “real presence” or “spiritual presence” in the Supper:
Pastor John, I see very plain statements in the Bible that show that Christ does not lose any of His true sheep. However, I am struggling to understand a passage in Revelation 3 where Christ says “because you are lukewarm… I will spit you out of My mouth.” Are you able to help me understand what these words mean?
