Can You Really Have Assurance of Salvation?

Collin Hansen | March 8, 2016

Was I sincere when I made a profession of faith?

Have I really trusted Christ for my salvation?

Does ongoing failure to resist temptation mean I’m not truly saved?

These are the sort of questions that haunt Christians who lack assurance of salvation.

My guest today to talk about them is Don Carson, research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and president of The Gospel Coalition. Thanks to Betsy Childs Howard for her help in preparing the interview.
