A thread started by TC was just closed called Sovereign Grace as it should be and we were all witness to a lively discussion by TC and Jon... The following was taken from John Gill on his exposition of the whole bible from Hebrews 6. This is just a except upon the statement "If They Shall Fall Away"... I think a few of us will be surprised who this statement is directed to and Gill says it so I won't step on any toes here... If you are familiar with Gill you can read it further. What are they falling away from and falling into?... Brother Glen This is not supposed of true believers, as appears from ( Hebrews 6:9 ) nor is it to be supposed of them that they may fall totally and finally; they may indeed fall, not only into afflictions and temptations, but into sin; and from a lively and comfortable exercise of grace, and from a degree of steadfastness in the Gospel; but not irrecoverably: for they are held and secured by a threefold cord, which can never be broken; by God the Father, who has loved them with an everlasting love, has chosen them in Christ, secured them in the covenant of grace, keeps them by his power, has given them grace, and will give them glory; and by the Son, who has undertook for them, redeemed and purchased them, prays and makes preparations in heaven for them, they are built on him, united to him, and are his jewels, whom he will preserve; and by the Holy Ghost, whose grace is incorruptible, whose personal indwelling is for ever, who himself is the earnest and seal of the heavenly inheritance, and who having begun, will finish the good work of grace.
