**Book of the Month (Top Ten Quotes)**

  1. For God pronounces a judgment on those who trust his Son. What is that judgment? They are declared righteous. In short, they are regarded by the Father as though they possessed all that Christ did and suffered. (Paraphrased)
  2. It is not great faith that saves; it is faith in a great Savior.
  3. Once saved always saved means that being saved is an unchangeable position. It is an irrevocable gift from God.
  4. The gospel on which ‘once saved always saved’ rests is by grace, through faith alone.
  5. The gospel is not merely ‘Christ died for you’ but believe that he died for you.
  6. In a word: grace is offered to all on the condition of faith confessed but no condition follows such faith.
  7. Believing in the doctrine of eternally security is not what makes you eternally secure-it is the gospel that promises it.
  8. If Christ’s sinless life and death on the cross did not secure our eternal salvation, then, presumably, we must fill in the gap with good works.
  9. The good news is that Christ alone, in and by himself, satisfied God’s eternal justice. All that is required of us is faith. Nothing more. That is the only reason we can affirm once saved, always saved.
  10. Things are never the same again once you believe in your heart that nothing, absolutely nothing, can sever you from God once you are saved.

All quotes taken from Once Saved, Always Saved by R.T Kendall (Crossbooks Publishing: Bloomington, IN, 2013)
