Once saved, always saved...(OSAS)  seems to be a burr under the saddle of people that reject the words of Christ.  The Lord Jesus Christ makes clear in the Gospel of John, (John 5:24) that the preservation of the saved soul is in the hands of the Saviour!  The doubter shows his distrust in God and His word by not believing in Eternal Security.  If God can not save and keep a soul and usher him all the way to Heaven, safe in the sweet arms of Jesus, then He is a powerless and impotent God.  If a saved person, with all his sins forgiven, (Colossians 2:14) can die and go to Hell...then the question would have to be asked....What are the charges against him?  Festus sald to King Agrippa in Acts 25:22-27 regarding the Apostle Paul being sent to court and the charges against him;  "For it seemeth to me unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not withal to signify the charges laid aginst him."   (Acts 25:27)      Romans 8:32 says;  " Who shall lay anything to charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth." If a sinner whose sins are forgiven through the cross of Calvary (1 John 2:12) can die and go to Hell...then the question must be asked of those that disbelieve in OSAS, "Where is your trust/faith in God?" Opponents of this doctrine use the terminology "Once Saved Always Saved," when in reality the truth lies in your definition of Eternal Life!   My belief is this; Once eternal life can not end, just as I believe in the eternal destruction/punishment of the unbeliever!    Faith conquers doubt!          (Romans 8:37/14:23(c)                                        DGL
