The material principle of the Reformation was sola fide, justification by faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God alone. But the Reformed tradition likewise affirmed that since salvation was an act of God focused upon the elect, performed by the Son in obedience to the Father, as a divine act it cannot be reversed. That is, salvation cannot be lost, for to say otherwise is to say Christ can fail to do the will of the Father.

The Roman Catholic Church has historically affirmed the ability of the justified to lose the grace of justification through the commission of mortal sins. Few topics focus the attention more upon the grounds of salvation than the question, can it be lost in those who once are truly saved? This will be the focus of our debate.

Join us for a thorough debate with Dr. James White and Trent Horn as we openly discuss the issues surrounding this highly debated issue.
