Salvation

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:13-14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Salvation

As Christians, we believe that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ died to make us right with God. He took on the sins of all who believe in Him, once and for all. I have read various views of whether salvation can be lost, once it has been received by faith. Obviously, we do not receive it by our works and many, including Billy Graham, believe that we don’t lose it because we continue to sin. As an oncologist who encounters deaths regularly, I pray that saved souls cannot be lost.

Guardian Angel

A guardian angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person.  The Bible mentions angels multiple times who protect us.  As a Christian, I believe The Holy Spirit is always with me so my “Guardian Angel” lives in me.  There have been many times when I barely avoided tragedy and felt His Divine intervention personally.  Just this week, a car that was in the lane next to me suddenly turned toward my side; and miraculously,  I steered away, barely avoiding a collision.  One can argue that it was my peripheral vision automatically sending signals to my brain that reflexly caused me to turn in time.  But once in Louisville, a gentle tap on my shoulder from an “invisible source” alerted my attention to a speeding truck that would have otherwise crushed me.  Some things cannot be explained scientifically.  Do you believe in Guardian Angels?
