4 comments on “Christian Salvation: Can You Lose It?

  1. Hmnmnnnn

    Your ise of the sauna typology is very good…however…..this view discounts ‘your wife’ (borrowing your analogy) from the entire consideration..

    – She could turn around & decide its
    not ‘her thing’ & give it up
    – worse she could run away with
    another man & wholly reject your
    free gifts…because she has ‘free will’
    – “behold i set before you life &
    death…choose life” …
    The Question should now be..
    Can a christian who has chosen life
    initially …later turnaround and
    choose death? YES!!!

    – God’s gifts are truly without repentance, but when we wilfuly return to the ‘vomit’ of old…is he obliged to endure us??? “….

    Romans 6:1…”what shall we say then, shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid”

    Grace to us all.

    • Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you taking the time to respond.

      I can tell from your comment that you believe a Christian can lose or give up their salvation and become lost again.

      Unfortunately this belief is not consistent with scripture.

      For confirmation on this you only need to look at John 10:27-29

      Jesus is very clear in the statements he made here.

      Fact #1 I give my sheep eternal life

      Fact #2 They shall never perish

      Fact #3 No one can pluck them out of my hand

      Fact #4 No one can pluck them out of my Father’s hand

      In considering if salvation is permanent you only have to ask yourself one thing. When Jesus said you shall NEVER perish… Did He lie?

      • I could quote hebrews 6:5-6 which is one of the most hotly contested scriptures but that probably wont help any…..Ultimately we will find out when its all over now wont we…

        Grace to you Alex

        • We certainly will.

          FYI… Hebrews 6:5-6 doesn’t mean what you think it does. In light of John 10:27-29 it obviously cannot!

          When discussing the issue of assurance of salvation every other scripture must be interpreted in the context of John 10:27-29 because Jesus made it as plain as He possibly could so that it needs no interpretation.
