Strawman Fallacy Against Conditional Security

A primary false accusation or distortion against those who reject eternal security seems to be that a person who embraces a conditional security is believing in a works salvation or cannot have salvation assurance. Both charges are absolutely untrue and unfair. The straw man fallacy applies here:

The straw man fallacy occurs when a person distorts an opposing position in some way, then attacks and demolishes this distorted position. By demolishing the distorted position, he or she claims to have demolished the entire position. (Henry Virkler, A Christian’s Guide to Critical Thinking, p. 227)

Regarding good deeds, it is not that good deeds will save, but sin can bring forth spiritual death (Jam 1:14, 15 cf. Lk 15:24,32). After initial salvation, we must persist in doing good to get eternal life (Rom 2:7).

The Bible teaches a present tense believer in Jesus has a present-tense assurance of salvation (1 Jn 5:12, 13). On the other hand, even if there was not any salvation assurance for the present tense believer, this still would not refute the believer’s conditional security. Only Scripture can do that, but instead of refuting such, it affirms it.

Once Saved Always Saved Contradictions

A contradiction is one of the surest ways to know error exists. In other words, it is absolutely impossible for two conflicting messages to both be right. Either one of the messages is wrong or they are both wrong; but they cannot both be right!

Anyone who has read much on the subject of Once Saved Always Saved has certainly read contradictory interpretations of key verses. This must imply error! Somebody is apparently wrong, and therefore, misleading their following. If this wasn’t related to God’s eternal truth, it wouldn’t be as serious as it is. Unfortunately, it does and, therefore, it must be addressed.

Evangelist Dan Corner boldly addresses the obvious contradictions of the once saved always saved teachers in his 801 page volume refuting eternal security entitled, “The Believer’s Conditional Security” which can be purchased at a 15% discount for a limited time at his website http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org

Eternal Salvation Is Not Eternal Security | Dan Corner

Can a person who loses his eternal salvation ever get saved again? Some erroneously think that eternal salvation means eternal security but the two terms are NOT the same. Eternal salvation is only for those who OBEY JESUS (Heb 5:9) whereas eternal security teaches one is saved forever regardless of what he does or fails to do. Once saved always saved is a popular myth having nothing to do with Biblical facts. Many are in hell now because of this snare to the soul. The real plan of salvation is repentance towards God and faith in Christ Jesus. Christians must endure to the end to be saved (Mt 10:22; Heb 3:14; Rev 2:10,11, etc.)
