A BacksliderI got up early Saturday morning and read John Wesley’s sermon on A Call To Backslidders and enjoyed it so much that I put it into booklet form and printed a short run.

He deals with those that doubt that the mercy of God can be extended to them after they have failed from a high state of grace.

He explains the “sin unto death” in 1 John 5:16; comments on “impossible… if they fall away to renew them again unto repentance” in Hebrews 6:4-6; deals with “there remains no other sacrifice for sins” in Hebrews 10:26-31; and goes over the “blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven” as recorded in Matthew 12:31,32 and Mark 3:28,29. I suggest you give it a read.

Interesting enough, the Wikipedia article on Arminianism states “upon resisting to the point of unbelief, one is unable again to believe” which I didn’t know was the Classical Arminianism view. I hold to the Wesleyan-Arminian view but I don’t like the explanation of this view in Wikipedia.

Google Book Search has the full text of Four Views on Eternal Security which looks like some interesting reading on the Reformed Arminian and the Wesleyan Arminian view of Eternal Security. I would hold that Unconditional Eternal Security is a unbiblical teaching.
