John Calvin has been quoted to have said “Assurance is of the essence of receiving Eternal Life” What are we to make of that? Does the Bible teach that? What part does assurance play in receiving eternal life if any? Is assurance of Eternal Life a follow-up doctrine? Come join Jason and Roger at 6:30 PM tonight as we search the scriptures to find out what it says about this critical subject as it pertains to sharing the message of life.
