Why additional sacramental graces needed, IF jesus paid it all, all to Him we owe?
Or was there sin that His death failed to atone for, and we have to cover that part in order to be saved by God?
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."

17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,
18 do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
