Charles Stanley may be the only Southern Baptist who was a part of the so-called "conservative resurgence" that I can listen to. Indeed, I have been blessed many times by his sermons. But some things he has said and believes I just can't take -- the following, for instance: "Even if a believer for all practical purposes becomes an unbeliever, his salvation is not in jeopardy… believers who lose or abandon their faith will retain their salvation." And this: "The Bible clearly teaches that God's love for His people is of such magnitude that even those who walk away from the faith have not the slightest chance of slipping from His hand." And further: "You and I are not saved because we have an enduring faith. We are saved because at a moment in time we expressed faith in our enduring Lord." This is a false and damaging teaching. Here in Southern Baptist OSAS land, I feel like an alien. I wish there was a General Baptist church nearby, but the closest one is an hour and a half away.
