Embracing the doctrine of eternal security, R.T. Kendall encourages the Christian struggling with legalism, bondage and fear and points us towards God's glorious promises. Once Saved, Always Saved is not a book for the complacent, as secure in our salvation we are challenged to live our lives with godly fear before the judgment seat of Christ.The New Westminster Pulpit Series is based on sermons preached weekly by R.T.

I discovered this book when looking for material on a proper interpretation of the problem passages in Hebrews (6 etc.). This book was one of the books that has what I believe to be the correct interpretation of specially the problem passage of Hebrews 6. I discovered a list of those who took this position on the interpretation of Hebrews 6 in a commentary on Hebrews by Dr. John Constable of Dallas Theological Seminary. Since my conversion in 1961 I have been gathering material on this problem passage. Also, the book as a whole is an excellent presentation of the doctrine of eternal security. For some years I was planning on doing a major research into the history and origin of the teaching of eternal security. At that point I only one that I know was John Calvin and the doctrine of perserverance of the Saints. Actually, he probably was not the one that formulated the terminology. His followers are probably the ones who formulated the concept of the TULIP in response to the Remonstrants five items. Most people that call themselves Calvinists are actually only saving that they believe in eternal security or popularly called "Once Saved, Always saved." Only those who have studied Calvinism in depth hold to the five points of formulated Calvism. Actually, John Calvin did not hold to L- limited atonement in the sense that Christ died only for the elect. In many of his works he clearly and unequivocally states that "Christ died for the sins of the whole human race". However, he would agree that the benefits and application of the atonement are only effectual to those who believe and are the elect. Mr. R. T. Kendall does make one statement in the book that indicates that he believes that regeneration takes place before a person exercises faith. This is a classic reform/Presbyterian position. I do not believe that this is consistent with other Scripture which I have seriously researched. All Reform/Presbyterian systematic theology books invarible put the discussion of regeneration prior to the discussion of faith and repentance. Kendall's book is excellent and should be read by all who are interested in the teaching of eternal security or even though who oppose the teaching. Per R. T. Kendall he for a long time held to what is known as "security of the believer". Security of the believer is the teaching that a believer is secure as long as he continues to believe. But this view teaches that a true believer can totally and finally fall away from the faith and faith and be lost forever.
