False Assurance from Brian Branam on Vimeo.
What do we mean by eternal security? Is it "once saved always saved," "perseverance of the saints," or maybe "eternal life?" After John offers great affirmation in the first of 1 John 2, he finds it appropriate to warn them as well. His message- "Do not love the world." John wants to convey that there is a style of life that can disrupt fellowship, destroy assurance, and place them in spiritual danger. The "world" is passing away and when we are connected to it, we will be carried away and pass away with it.
