Eternal Security of the Believer in Jesus
Take your Bibles, turn to Romans 8 for just a moment. Romans Chapter 8. Now we're going to look at a lot of scriptures, but we're going to begin in Romans Chapter 8. Now let me ask you a question.

Look in Romans 8 verses 38 and 39, the Apostle Paul says, ''For I am persuaded,'' this is not some uh whimsical view, ''I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor po ...
