Many people are tormented by a lack of genuine Christian assurance, simply because of theological and practical misunderstandings. Woodrow W. Whidden II addresses common questions and misunderstandings as he explores the Seventh-day Adventist doctrines of grace, law, salvation, judgment, and final events. His findings reveal biblical teachings that will inspire a deep, refreshing sense of the assurance of salvation as he explores such issues as: •How can believers know with certainty that they are saved?
• Does the Bible teach a cosmic, pre-Advent investigative judgment based on works?
• Who will survive the latter rain, the close of probation, and the time of trouble?
• What do believers do with failure, backsliding, and the fear of judgment?
• Are Ellen G. White's writings a help or a stumbling block when understanding salvation?
This powerful and comprehensive book will help believers become assured and balanced Christians, able to understand and explain the biblical teachings on judgment and assurance.
