A few questioned prompted by this passage, and John Piper's Sermon from T4G, listen here: http://t4g.org/media/2012/04/glory-majesty-dominion-and-authority-keep-us-safe-for-everlasting-joy-3/ 1. If you do NOT hold to OSAS (or Eternal Security, or Perserverance), how do you reconcile your beliefs with verse 24? 2. If you DO hold to OSAS...etc, why is it that many Christians DO stumble? Is he ABLE to keep us from stumbling, but not WILLING?
