Cheap grace theology is when you say, "Just believe and everything will be settled forever." without testing the validity of a true conversion. While it only takes one to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved but to merely profess belief is not a guarantee for salvation. John 8:31 has Jesus saying, "If ye continue in My Word, then are ye my disciples indeed." Even if Christians are not sinless or they can fall into compromise but they continue in God's Word. There is no way that a person can become a Christian and still remain in such gross disobedience because God's grace does the impossible to redeem a person from one's sinful lifestyle (Titus 2:11-14). That is definitely not what the "Easy Christian" wants. They want a Christianity that is so easy, a Christianity that does not have sanctification and they only want Jesus as Savior but not as Lord. Sad to say their Jesus is not Lord, they are not saved to start with.
While the doctrine of eternal security is true but it is not just merely once saved, always saved. Do you know the Bible tests the true converts from the false ones? Matthew 24:13 says that those who endure to the end, the same shall be saved. At first, it feels like works salvation at first glace but 1 John 2:19 says that those who left the flock were not of the flock. Many people today make a profession of faith but it was all a sham. If that faith does not result in perseverance then it is best to call it a sham faith. If that faith does not result in faithfulness then there was no faith to start with. It is not works salvation to teach it because we did not say people are saved by their works, instead we say that their works shows who are saved and who is not such as do you do good works to keep yourself saved or do you do good works only out of gratitude for being saved? Their teaching that grace grants license to sin is just as demonic as anybody who teaches works are required to be saved or to stay saved.
You want the proof of a genuine conversion? It is not only in times when Christians rise but also in times when they fall. Just because a person is a true convert does not mean that they are free from doubts, failures and hindrances to their growth. The difference lies in how they rise up after they fall as Proverbs 24:16 says that a just man falls seven times but rises up from that falling. The person has the Lordship of Christ in their lives, they are His and God who begins a good work in them will continue to perfect it. There is really no room for completely falling away that even if they do fall away, God's grace will keep them from completely falling away and it gives them the grace to endure to the end.
