Pastor Finley continues his series on the book of Hebrews, focusing specifically on chapter 7, but first discusses the question of eternal security / personal assurance of salvation.  The question of whether believers can lose their salvation, or whether God eternally chooses and predestines His people for salvation, has been a hotly debated topic in Christian circles for almost four hundred years.  Pastor Finley explores the relevant Biblical texts on this issue and fairly weighs both sides of this important debate.
