By Ryn Gargulinski: QCS The holiday countdown is on. Not for the lighting of New Mexico’s tree that made it to Washington, D.C. (that already happened).

Examining unconditional eternal security

By Leonard Lauriault: QCS columnist Overheard once after a funeral: “He went to church when he was younger, so he’ll be alright.” Such statements are based in the un-Biblical philosophy that once one becomes a Christian, he cannot lose his salvation.
