    I enjoy listening to Charles Stanley, because he preaches from the Bible. I still feel that I need to listen to God, believe God, and obey God. CHARLES STANLEY SAYS ONCE YOU ARE SAVED, YOUR NAME IS WRITTEN, YOUR NAME IS WRITTEN IN THE LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE.

    • John Boruff says:

      Hi James, and I would definitely say that Charles Stanley is not correct about that subject. Take a look sometime at Hebrews chapter 6 and chapter 10. Ask yourself if that looks like Charles Stanley’s take on salvation is wrong. Also take a look sometime at John Wesley’s sermon “A Call to Backsliders.” It might give you a fresh perspective that you’re not going to hear from Charles Stanley.
