I thought this article by Dan Corner of Evangelical Outreach was worth sharing:
Posted on May 24, 2013 by Eternal Life

WARNING! If you were a Christian then converted over to the security in sin gospel by eating the candy coated SOUL POISON of eternal security, you are finished! You are DOOMED. You will be damned, unless you come back to your senses and start to live holy again!candy coated poisonThough this is shocking rare truth to hear in our day, it is fact and important to remember. Tell those you love these things. The eternal security teachers are unrecognized dangerous cult leaders. They have slowly trained their followers to think and respond in a certain way, which is spiritually destructive to them and their families. Just as a brainwashed Jehovah’s Witness or Mormon answers a certain way regarding their doctrine, the eternal security proponents have been subtly brainwashed and programmed by blind guides to do the same! They have the same answers, because their false hope is built on the same distortions and lies. To believe in eternal security (once saved always saved) is to embrace a false grace and a counterfeit gospel, instead of the Biblical truth! It is to be oblivious to and blatantly reject the aspect of the Christian gospel that is revealed in 1 Cor. 15:2.

By this gospel you are saved, IF you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

After the brainwashing is completed, as an advocate of eternal security, you will still confess yourself as a Christian, but now you will also think Paul (as a Christian) was the worst of sinners! That alone will help extinguish all future Holy Spirit conviction in your life for sin. You will now argue that you are not righteous and not a good person, while you insist you are a sinner! You will unashamedly admit that you sin all the time (or at least every day) with NO fear of God or the deadly effects of sin! By doing this, you have distorted and smeared the holy and saintly image of Christianity, before others you contact, into a powerless empty form of godlinessmixed in with worldliness, lust, greed, lying and the like. You will profess to have eternal salvation, but in the same breath you deny that only those who OBEY Jesus get eternal salvation (Heb. 5:9). You now believe the same sins that were dragging you to hell before getting born again can be committed afresh but will no longer drag you to hell. You are that deceived and brainwashed!

Eternal security is like candy coated poison for the soul. It will spiritually poison to death all who partake! It will have you believe your future sins are already forgivenbefore they are committed — without repentance, forgiving others and/or confession of those sins to God. It is also to believe that God isn’t even able to see your sins after getting born again, yet somehow you will still lose rewards because of those same sins he supposedly can’t see. (You remain oblivious to contradictions like this.)

The heavenly Father and Son you now believe in are mythical and you unconsciously and unwittingly think God can be mocked regarding who will reap eternal life (Gal. 6:7-9). You deny God would ever cut you off from Christ for not bearing good fruit (Jn. 15:1-6). You deny Jesus would ever disown you for disowning him, like he said he would (Mt. 10:33), and you blindly deny that the lukewarm will be expelled out of the body of Christ by Jesus Christ himself (Rev. 3:15,16). You scoff at the idea of being afraid that God would cut you from Christ, as he did the Israelites over their unbelief (Rom. 11:19-23). Hence, you will remain deceived and arrogantin an empty and non-existent security. You magnify that you are saved by grace(Eph. 2:8,9), but deny you can fall from the same grace to the place where Christ is of no value to you at all (Gal. 5:2-4).

Because you have been taught by the blind guides that those who do not adhere to eternal security are believing in a works salvation, you have automatically dismissed the above truths and all others like them, as though they were ridiculous and unbelievably wrong because we aren’t saved by works.candy coated poison The harmless lookingeternal security cult leadershave almost certainly sealed your fate in the unquenchable fires of hell, unless you escape their grip!Remember these things — If a Christian converts over to eternal security, he:

  • Has been set up for a spiritual fall (1 Cor. 10:12);
  • Will lose his crown, for he isn’t holding on (Rev. 3:11);
  • Will NOT enter God’s kingdom because he isn’t even making any effort to enter God’s kingdom, much less making EVERY EFFORT (Lk. 13:23,24)! He thinks that would be works and he will surely be lost eternally on this point alone, unless he returns to holy loving.

You now also think the same God who can’t see your sins after salvation is also holding you, keeping you and guarding you even as you live as his enemy (James 4:4). You deny you will have to endure to the end for salvation (Mt. 10:22; Heb. 3:14; Rev. 2:10,11).  You also think you are guaranteed a definite and certain entrance into God’s paradise kingdom, even if God strikes you dead because of your heinous unrepentant sins. You laugh at the idea that merely looking back after placing your hands to the plow will show you as unfit for God’s kingdom (Lk. 9:62). You oppose these truths of God and embrace a demonic lie because of your itching sin loving ears (2 Tim. 4:2-4). The sins you cherish are dragging you to hell, but you think sin is no longer the issuesince the cross. One salvation passage you will surely never cite or ponder is Gal. 6:8,9:

The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Instead, if you are like most, you will follow the deceived church crowd and use the flimsy so-called Romans Road salvation presentation to present your false gospelYou will surely be damned unless you come back to your senses and live holy again. Be assured of this: Eternal security is the greatest doctrinal threat to holiness that exists! Multitudes are in hell now because of it and you will join them unless you change! Don’t remain a blind follower of the blind. Your SOUL is in the greatest danger.

From Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible:

“IV. David’s pious dependence upon the divine providence and grace in this distress: But David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. His men fretted at their loss. The soul of the people was bitter, so the word is. Their own discontent and impatience added wormwood and gall to the affliction and misery, and made their case doubly grievous. But 1. David bore it better, though he had more reason than any of them to lament it; they gave liberty to their passions, but he set his graces on work, and by encouraging himself in God, while they dispirited each other, he kept his spirit calm and sedate. Or, 2. There may be a reference to the threatening words his men gave out against him. They spoke of stoning him; but he, not offering to avenge the affront, nor terrified by their menaces, encouraged himself in the Lord his God, believed, and considered with application to his present case, the power and providence of God, his justice and goodness, the method he commonly takes of bringing low and then raising up, his care of his people that serve him and trust in him, and the particular promises he had made to him of bringing him safely to the throne; with these considerations he supported himself, not doubting but the present trouble would end well. Note, Those that have taken the Lord for their God may take encouragement from their relation to him in the worst of times. It is the duty and interest of all good people, whatever happens, to encourage themselves in God as their Lord and their God, assuring themselves that he can and will bring light out of darkness, peace out of trouble, and good out of evil, to all that love him and are the called according to his purpose, Rom_8:28. It was David’s practice, and he had the comfort of it, What time I am afraid I will trust in thee. When he was at his wits’ end he was not at his faith’s end. ” 

I felt encouraged by this passage and wanted to share it, along with Mr. Henry’s commentary on it.

As mentioned in my last post on the subject of Writing a Mystery, my brain was becoming overcome by locales, characters, events, and conversations—not to mention the intertwining plotlines!  A writer friend of mine suggested a couple of books, one of which she said she’d loan or give me, and another, which I purchased.  The one I purchased is Fiction Writing Demystified, by (trust me) Tom Sawyer.  It has, I must say inspired me to want to take my novel, when I think I have finished it, and sit down with Demystified and go through each chapter by chapter together to ensure I’ve not left anything undone.

Another tool I’m using is a little program called Diagram Designer by Michael Vinther.  I’m not doing a precise event timeline with it, but I did a plotline, diagrammed the evidence for a crime, and described the major plotline sequence of events as it pertained to the crime itself.  On other pages, I am tracking on which days of the week (and elapsed days) are in which chapters and where the scenes are on those days.

For an actual like-the-cops-on-TV timeline, as the detectives would see it, showing what evidence and connections they see thus far, I’m using an Excel template.

Most how-to-be-a-writer sites tend to suggest, if not mandate, the creation of an outline.  I have found, however, that I’m what I would call a character-driven writer.  I don’t know exactly what is down the road until I write what the characters do or say or see in the here and now.

Well, dear reader, it is time for me to get back to my characters and see where they will take me today!

Thank you for reading!
