The Security of Salvation

The permanency of salvation is a foundational question for rational skeptics and Christ followers alike. It’s foundational because it helps to clarify the even greater question of “what is salvation,” which I believe we could all agree is centrally important (maybe we’ll also discuss that). Accordingly, I believe that everyone who has asked themselves about what it means to be “saved” has answered our topic either explicitly or by assumption. Take a moment for some self-reflection. Ask yourself, can I lose my salvation? Does my answer affect how I live or my beliefs? Does my answer affect my choices? Is simple belief enough (John 3:16)? What if I stopped believing? What if I renounced my faith? Study the scriptures. Some notable ones to guide your discovery are: Hebrews 3; Hebrews 4:4-6; Hebrews 10:19-39; Romans 8:38-39; Romans 11:19-24; John 10; & Matthew 25:31-44.

Remember 1 Peter 3:14-16: “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” Salvation is a major component of that hope. Let’s come together and “continue to work out [our] salvation” (Philippians 2:12) in friendship, love and service.

Grace and peace,

Eric

    Thank you all, so much, for a terrific evening. Great discussion, good food and drink, and even better company. Special thanks to Guy, Pete, and Bill for "taking a step of faith" to see what we're all about--I hope to see each of you gentlemen again soon. To Daphne, Saravanan, Julie, Guy, Justin, Pete, Bill, and Steven: I am truly blessed to know each of you, and I thank my "ultimate authority" for you. In love, grace and peace,

    Kind of short notice (shorter than in the past), so we may push this back a little depending on how you all feel. If everything does work out, I'm going to try to fire-up the grill, so if you would like to bring something please do--mushroom caps, tofurkey, whatever!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
