Your explanations betray your ignorance of the different views that evangelicals have on eternal security.I don't concern myself with the errors of men but only with the eternal truth of the Word of God.

Not all evangelicals believe in what you are claiming they believe.
Quote:It is you who made it seem as though Evangelicals unanimously believed what you are teaching. But you have now admitted that you follow a more Catholic position on this matter than the average Evangelical. Although your position, is itself, an error.
Therefore, when I and other posters articulate a very evangelical understanding of salvation, faith, and works, you are confused because it looks very similar to Catholic teaching, and yet it contradicts what you've come to think the "evangelical" position is.
I find that the Catholics on this forum tend to believe that all evangelicals believe in Once Saved Always Saved, and that is a universally held doctrine among evangelical churches.
It may not be completely universal. But enough Evangelicals believe it that we may safely generalize that they all do. Whenever the odd Evangelical appears who holds a slightly different variant of that belief, we can handle those argumens, case by case. Suffice to say, that if the variant does not agree with the Catholic Teaching, it is still in contradiction of the Word of God in Scripture, as well.
It is not, and many, many evangelicals find it an abhorrent theology.
That is good to hear. Now if they would only take the next step and embrace the Catholic Church, it would be wonderful!
Good talking to you,
