ON THE PERSEVERANCE OF SAINTS
QUERIES. -- Is it possible for true believers to fall away totally and finally: 2. Do some of them, in reality, totally and finally fall from the faith? 3. The opinion which denies |that true believers and regenerate persons are either capable of falling away or actually do fall away from the faith totally and finally,| was never, from the very times of the apostles down to the present day, accounted by the church as a catholic doctrine. Neither has that which affirms the contrary ever been reckoned as a heretical opinion; nay, that which affirms it possible for believers to fall away from the faith, has always had more supporters in the church of Christ, than that which denies its possibility of its actually occurring.
