There are a couple of threads on here where the OSAS believers are trying to give the retionale for believing in OSAS. It would be helpful if they would tell us which OSAS they are promoting. I started this new thread so as not to hyjack another thread. OSAS1 - The 5-Point Calvinist belief in OSAS, sometimes called Perservence of the Saints. This belief is connected to Unconditional Election/ Irresistable Grace as its basis for OSAS or perservence. OSAS2 - This belief says a True Christian will not (can not) stop believing; and therefore is assured of continued belief and will go to heaven. I think this is the most popular OSAS belief. OSAS3 - This belief says a True Christian can stop believing, but even if he dies in unbelief, he will still go to heaven. The best known proponent of OSAS3 is Charley Stanley. A distinction between OSAS2 and OSAS3 is important because they directly contradict each other in whether a True Christian can or will stop trusting in Christ. So when you promote the doctrine of OSAS, please indicate which OSAS you are promoting. Also please indicate why you don't believe in the other versions of OSAS.
