In the Statement of Faith of a church I was trying to find out some details about, they have "Eternal Security" listed. In that section, it has three points. The first simply affirms eternal security. The second says it is not an excuse to sin. However, the third says "Those who do not understand or believe in eternal security do not understand or believe the GOSPEL. They are lost." Haven't they taken belief in eternal security too far? Does anyone here agree with their statement and would be willing to explain? I have written to the pastor of that church, and will summarize his response here (after I receive it) if anyone is interested.
