1 John 3:1-24 KJV
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons a of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. [2] Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. [3] And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. [4] Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. [5] And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. [6] Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. [7] Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. [8] He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. [9] Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. [10] In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. [11] For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. [12] Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. [13] Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. [14] We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. [15] Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. [16] Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. [17] But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? [18] My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. [19] And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. [20] For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. [21] Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. [22] And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. [23] And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. [24] And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.

What does OSAS heresy teach regarding 1 Corinthians6:9-10 where Paul addresses again certain lifestyles that will not go to heaven. He is not talking to sinners there,He's addressing Christians who are deceived by OSAS heresy. Osas heresy says that these lifestyles won't separate u from God Yet, Paul,by Holy Spirit,says you're unrighteousness and will not see God. Remember when u embrace osas heresy,u have to go all the way with it can't have exceptions. U believe OSAS nonsense,or u don't u believe u have to sincerely live for Christ, or u don't

There is no such thing as salvation by Jesus Christ the evil and wicked Jew who was a liar and fraud as the son of the Devil just like he said he was in the book of John in chapter 8 and in John 18 he revealed he was not the christ with his much talking before Pilate and six hours later he died and was rejected by God and his evil plan of Salvation died with him when he a son of the devil was sent to hell forever.

According to Calvinism (Piper being the preeminent Calvinist of our day) and TULIP those predestined for hell can never be saved that is the sovereign will of God. It’s His way of showing His Glory. But if you are one of the deceived in your belief of salvation but are really one of the non elect. You will go to hell but be happy it’s God’s way of showing His Glory. Dude you have to be a Pharisee oops a theologian to understand everything he says but he doesn’t tell you all their beliefs. That’s why you have to pray for the Holy Spirits decernment and let him show you through his word and your spirit. They’re are many things out there to profess to know the mind of God. Be careful they don’t. Let the Spirit lead you. May the love of Jesus Christ be with you and in you.

1 John 3:6 (KJV)
“Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.” Sinneth means one who practices sin, or is living a sinful lifestyle. That person has never known Christ. People that teach once you’re saved you can live anyway you want are the culprits and make people twofold a child of hell.

The Bible doesn't say once saved always anywhere in it. Nothing that implies it, and plenty to correct it. Verses used ignorantly to imply it simply are words of encouragement to continue in the faith, and are no way meant to make a Christian think that they cannot turn from the faith and go to hell. You can turn from faith, and go to hell. But even if you have turned, just turn back. You still have time. Just repent and submit fully to God. Accept no lies, and preach the truth. Bless all who have ears to hear.

Christ died for my sins. All of them forever. John 3:18 Believers can never be condemned again, but unbelievers are condemned already, because they have not believed on the name of the Son of God. No matter how many sins I may commit, Jesus paid for them all.

First John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that BELEIVE on the name of the Son of God, that ye may KNOW YE HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. We know that we know that we know we have eternal life. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, and we all sin, and we all die, but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE, through Jesus Christ our Lord. If it is eternal, how long does it last? Forever and ever and ever.

AMAZING GRACE, JESUS PAID IT ALL AND WE PAID 0. IT IS FREE, or not at all.

Can anyone be saved? YES. It does not matter what you have done or what you will do. First John 2:2 And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but for the sins of the whole world. First John 2:4 Who would have all men to be saved and come unto the knowledge of the truth. The Gospel, First Corinthians 15:1-4 That Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, that He was buried and rose again on the third day, according to the scriptures. When we believe that gospel we are sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise unto the day of redemption. Ephesians 1:13 and 4:30

I could not go to hell even if wanted to. I have no sins to pay for. Jesus one blood sacrifice covers us from all sin. And He imputes His perfect righteousness to us, and will no more impute sin to our account. Romans 4:6–8.

I am a sinner saved by grace. John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, hath everlasting life. The GIFT of God is eternal life. Romans 11:6 It is all grace without works to all who just believe on His name. John 1:12 Romans 1:16 You can not boast in free. Ephesians 2:8-9

What Dr. Piper does not address is the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE tense aspects of salvation. In the past aspect, when we BEGAN to believe, we were attached to the Vine and became recipients of His life. Unlike what Piper implies, the eternality of His life cannot ever be enjoyed apart from union with the son. Rather the eternal life we have is derivative. We do not generate it any more than the moon generates the sun's light. Rather, we must remain relationally positioned in faith and fully exposed to the light of His truth
This first step of faith in which we begin to share His life can be seen in 1 Corinthians 6:11. There, after listing all the sins the Corinthians used to be in bondage to the Apostle concludes with:
A. And that is what some of you WERE [imperfect tense]. But you WERE washed [aorist tense], you WERE sanctified [aorist tense] you WERE washed [aorist tense], you WERE justified [aorist tense], in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

(1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
The imperfect tense views the Corinthians' PAST life of sin as if it were in progress (like a motion picture). By contrast, their WASHING, SANCTIFICATION, and JUSTIFICATION are all presented in the aorist tense which is a snapshot view to show that all those things were part of a single experience.

B. There is also another sense in which salvation is ongoing and active in the PRESENT. In this, we continue to abide in the Vine, receiving His life and producing fruit:
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to US who ARE BEING SAVED [present tense] it is the power of God.”
(1 Corinthians 1:18)

C. There is also a FUTURE TENSE aspect of salvation in which believers who have REMAINED in the Vine until the end will enter into full and final eternal life. Some examples of where this is affirmed in scripture are the following:
9 Since, therefore, we have now BEEN JUSTIFIED [past] by his blood, much more SHALL WE BE SAVED [future tense] by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies [aorist tense] we were reconciled [aorist tense] to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled [present tense] , SHALL WE BE SAVED [future] by his life.

(Romans 5:9-10)

"Salvation by His LIFE refers to the resurrection and to entering into the Kingdom of God. Since "saved from wrath is also shown as a future event, we conclude that it is speaking of the last judgment where some will be brought into life everlasting and others into Gods eternal wrath.
And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead WILL GIVE LIFE (future tense) to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who dwells in you.
(Romans 8:11)
Finally, we have Jesus' teaching of the Sheep & Goats. When the sheep stand before the throne, the Lord does not say they will be admitted as sheep because of a single decision they made on earth but rather because of a disposition of faith throughout their lives. What they receive at the end is not peripheral rewards but ETERNAL LIFE itself.

John Piper's error lies in conflating and confusing all these aspects of salvation though a relatively simple look at the grammar shows that this view is erroneous. To see if what I have said is valid or not read what a world-class scholar of the Greek language A. T. Robertson wrote about past, present and future salvation in his book: "Word Pictures In The New Testament Volume 4 – Epistles of Paul"

Christians better hope its once saved always saved….cause if its based on not sinning or needing to repent of sinning, no christian will make it. consider this, if its based on not sinning…EVERY christian will sin until the day they die, so forget that. cause hell is your eternal home. if its based on repenting of your sins…then Gods salvation is a roulette wheel determining your destiny where you were when you died. sinning…. repented….sinning…repented…sinning..repented… oops…you just so happened to die of a heart attack before you could repent? welp, hell it is! does that sound like a God thats promises to be faithful? does that sound like the God that stopped the people from stoning the adulterous woman? her judgement of her sin wasnt held against her…because like the verse that said "prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God before you" its because sinful people who believe…are saved.

I think the answer to this question can be better understood when we look at Exodus. When Moses parted the Red Sea and the Israelites crossed I’m sure there were those that confidently trusted the Lord and Moses and knew they would reach the other side safely. I also imagine there were those with very little faith (faith of a mustard seed), terrified that at any moment the waves would descend upon them and they would die, but yet they followed Moses down the path. Both those of abundant faith and those of little faith made it to the other side alive because they trusted the Lord and they walked the path that He created. Now imagine if a group of Israelites stayed on the beach and never followed Moses into the sea. They would have perished. This event reflects our own journey. You cannot lose your salvation if you have faith in Jesus (even the faith of a mustard seed) and you start walking the path He has laid out for you. I believe that once you sincerely accept Him and take that first step down His path you are saved because you have been purchased with His bloodshed and nothing can reverse that. And even when you intentionally stray off that path Jesus will be at your side to bring you back. As one of my favorite lyrics states, “O how fast would You come running if just to shadow me through the night. Trace my steps through all my failure and walk me out the other side”. I personally know this to be true because I have tried to run off the path countless times only to be saved by my Good Shepherd.

Faith alone without good works is dead. Faith is only the beginning. Your faith is measured by your works. God wants workers who believe, not unfruitful "believers." Remember the parable of the servants and the talents? The workers worked with what they were given and they multiplied it. The one that squandered what he was given and didn't produce anything. He was still a servant, but a lazy and evil one at that. He was cast into hell. God wants workers who believe, not unfruitful "believers." our Lord said "be doers, not merely hearers" of His gospel.

Liar repent!

Luigi Xoxo - posted on September 14, 2019 3:27 pm

you don't "lose" salvation, but you can walk away from salvation, if someone sin and repent he's forgiven (1 John 1:9) God will do whatever he possibly can not to lose anyone, not to give up on anybody
but if someone sin and continue to sin and refuses to change, then that person is in dangerous ground.Repentance is everything.

In Luke 13, The rich man knew why he went to hell, he pled for Abraham to send Lazarus to testify to his 5 brothers, ''lest they also come to this place of torment'' in the conversation he said "he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’" the rich man knew that if his brothers were to escape hell they must repent.

Jesus says twice in Luke 13:3 and 13:5 "unless you repent, you too will all perish."

_Jesus called people to repent before he even called them to believe _ Mark writes, "…Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel" (Mark 1:14-15). Christ preached, "Repent first — and believe."

Paul makes it clear that those whose lives are characterized by sin “will not inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9-10; see also Rom. 8:12-13, Gal. 5:21, Eph. 5:5).
you don't have to fear losing salvation if you remain in him

Thetruthwillblowyou away - posted on September 18, 2019 6:31 pm

Thanks to this once saved always saved doctrine christianity is diminishing and more religions are taking over, good job everyone insisting to preach this doctrine.
good job for making christians idle and lazy, not wanting to do a thing to preserve christianity or to spread the gospel, why would they want to do that and risk their lives?
they have to only believe and nothing more to go to heaven, why would they bother to do something.
good job for leaving them with that impression.

I bet there is someone laughing at how we are destroying ourselves, without any outer intervention.

Yes, salvation is a Gift from God and you can only go to heaven because of what Jesus has done, not by your own works, deeds.

BUT if you feel assured and convinced of your salvation and because of that you do not pay attention to your deeds and you do whatever you want, the result of this MIGHT TAKE YOU TO HELL.
So be careful and control your thoughts and deeds.

When you are hesitant and do not know what to do, think about this :
Who will lose?
– 1. The person who doubts and is ambivalent about that you can never lose your salvation and watches over his deeds and tries to do good;

– 2. Or the person who is 100% sure that after he has said – Jesus, I believe in you and after that lives the way he wants without regard to his works, actions, deeds?
I think the second(2) one will lose. He has more to lose. Be on the safe, default side! Side (1).

BUT MAKE SURE BEFORE THAT YOU KNOW AND REALLY, SINCERELY, GENUINELY believe in JESUS.
At the end of the day it is your choice.

DO YOU BELIEVE In God, IN JESUS? Are you a true Believer?IF YES, TAKE YOUR TIME and just read this 🙂

Let's say that you have Received Jesus when you were 25 years old.
And at the age of 25 you have been SAVED, you have reached salvation.

And what if from 26 to 70 you have started smoking, got into fornication, adultery and all that stuff TELL ME THEN, HAVEN'T YOU LOST YOUR SALVATION during that time?!?

I think BY YOUR DEEDS and what you have done YOU SURELY HAVE LOST YOUR SALVATION and you have neglected Jesus, and his teachings, and the commandments by what you have shown and done.

JUDGEMENT DAY will BE BASED ON WHAT YOU HAVE DONE and THOUGHT!

Matthew 16:24 > Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

THINKING THAT once you are saved you are and from that point further you can't go to hell is foolish friends.

YOU HAVE TO LIVE YOUR ENTIRE LIFE ACCORDING TO what GOD AND JESUS' is telling you. AND THE COMMANDMENTS! IT IS NOT something that once you reach it and it is OVER!!!

YOU HAVE TO live your entire LIFE ACCORDING TO THIS! Not just one part of it until you reach salvation and after that doing whatever pleases you, rested assured that heaven is awaiting you. That is not true!

And because of the things written ABOVE and many more, YOU CAN LOSE YOUR SALVATION AND ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED IS A LIE!!! FAITH ALONE WON'T SAVE YOU. OF course it essential and if you don't have faith and relationship with JESUS your deeds won't mean anything and you will be considered as part of the unbelievers, BUT FAITH ALONE ISN'T ENOUGH, because [ deeds sharpen, form your character. YOU became what you repeatedly do! ]

!!!! AS LOSING your salvation one of things I mean is this. Think about this > what if 5 or 10 years after you have received Jesus you committed a murder? You got involved into drinking, ruining other people' lives? Are you still going to heaven? Are you suitable for heaven? Think about this > How will Jesus regard, perceive you? What would his opinion be about you?

Because at first you have got to know him but after that, because you felt assured that heaven is secured for you, you know, the thought of relief has got into your subconsciousness and gradually has changed you. It has led you astray from Jesus.
READ VERY CAREFULLY REVELATION 3:15-17 and think about what I told you in the above sentences.
Please, now I want you to assess yourself. What does money mean for you? Would you give your life for Jesus? Consider, ponder over those things above.

Tell me – isn't your life made up of deeds?
Each thing you do is 1 deed, right? Every single day is made up of deeds and so is your entire life. IF deeds are not important than based on what is your judgement going to be? On happy talk?

When you go in front of God do you really think he will just say – oh, you know what
– it doesn't matter that you lived to your flesh as much as possible;
– it doesn't matter than you took drugs;
– it doesn't matter that you insulted and ruined so many people lives in order to get rich,

BECAUSE JESUS PAID IT ALL FOR YOU. Do you really think this will happen and then he will just let you into heaven?

Did GOD really let his son Jesus down here on earth so that they can beat him and torture him beyond comprehension, ASIDE FROM THE CRUCIFIXION so that you can do all that you want and still go to heaven? I hope it really works for you that way… I REALLY HOPE, but it may not!!! So better try to correct yourself if that happens!

Also

1. Are you a christian just because your present situation is financially stable and good? Are you a Christian Because you do not lack anything and you want to express you joy into something and you call this something GOD? Will your faith remain if you lose your money? If you lose your reputation?

2. NOW, IF YOU HAVE TO PUT ASIDE ALL your THINGS AND LIVE IN POVERTY while also others are making fun of you for believing in some OLD BEARDED man in the sky, WILL YOU STILL BE A CHRISTIAN? will you be content only with JESUS? Remember, GOD SEES and READS our HEARTS. He already knows the answers to those 2 questions that I have posted. Now don’t be ashamed, but Please, correct yourselves!

Matthew 16:24 > Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. IF you do not repent and change YOU WILL HEAR THIS > Matthew 7: 21-23 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you [[[[[[EVILDOERS]]]]].
< SEE he said evilDOERS. Do is a verb you do something = work, deeds…

1. Luke 6:46 > “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not [[[[[do]]]]] what I say?

2. Mark 7:6,7 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. 7 They [[[[[[worship]]]]] me in vain; their teachings are merely HUMAN RULES.

One of the easiest and simplest ways to understand that Deeds and your works do matter is to think about the coming judgement day.

> REVELATION > 20:12 – 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had [[[[[DONE]]]]] as recorded in the books.
> 2 corinthians 5:10 > 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things [[[[[DONE]]]]] while in the body, whether good or bad.

CITING bible verses and typing AMEN TO EVERY POST WON'T SAVE YOU AND WON'T TAKE YOU TO HEAVEN. friends. Especially typing amen on facebook posts with pictures of money or material gains with a text on it < type amen and you will receive in Jesus’ name….. THIS IS THE top of the lukewarmish behaviour!

GET RID OF YOUR PRIDE, EGO AND TURN TO JESUS IN PRAYER AND ASK HIM FOR FORGIVENESS AND TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND CHANGE YOU.

Typing amen amen to every post won't do anything for you.

Do you know JESUS???

If Christianity is diminishing it is because of the idleness of the believers.

Most are putting of the work for someone else to do it. At best, procrastinating.
How if not by works we can change something?
Go, set an example.
Spread the gospel.

We should follow Jesus Christ right?
So If we call ourselves CHRISTians, Then we ought to do the work he’s been doing too!

Spreading the gospel. Not only to already established believers but those who are not familiar with it.
We should try to inform them about it. At first adapt our language, approach to their thinking and gradually introduce our point.

Yes, absolutely. It is very hard for a person to enter into the kingdom of God. The righteous shall scarcely be saved, so what shall become of the ungodly and the sinner?

Follow Acts 2:38 to wash thy sins away.
Jesus said in order to enter into the kingdom you must be born of water and the spirit. Repent, be baptized, and receive the Holy Spirit(evidenced by speaking in tongues)

The reason people are always asking if they can lose their salvation is because they are living a sinful, selfish life. Jesus told us that it will be the ones who endure til the end WILL be saved.

Salvation occurs over our lives: we were saved (by faith in Jesus alone) we are being saved (by submitting to the Holy Spirit) and we will be saved…(at the return of Jesus & the resurrection of the dead (believers) & rapture of those still alive) This is the ultimate redemption.

Read the verses below…how can you come to the conclusion that the saved cannot abandon the faith by yielding to SIN??

Hebrews 6:4-6

For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.

II Corinthians 1:21-22

And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, 22 and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

Ephesians 4:30

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

John 15:4-6

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.

Romans 11:17-24

But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root[c] of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. 19 Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20 That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22 Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. 23 And even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree.

I Timothy 4:1

Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons

Matthew 24:9-13

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then many will fall away[a] and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

II Peter 2:20-22

For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

Once saved always saved is a false Doctrine!!!! The Bible States clearly that he that endureth to the end shall be saved!!!!!!! , YAHUSUA BLOOD is not a license to sin !!!!!! We must work out our salvation with fear and trembling!!!!!!, the church has lost the fear of YAHWEH AKA GOD , the fear of GOD is the beginning of wisdom!!!!!!!. Many will perish!!!! There's only one interpretation of the Bible!!!! Only one Gospel and it's not the once saved always saved bull crap that comes from satan himself!!!!!!. I feel sorry for most professing Christians!!!!!!! True Salvation is for time !!as well as eternity.

What about those who believed, tasted the power of Christ , followed God with loving zeal, active prayer life, were regularly convicted of sin,and repented unto greater righteousness, but were deceived to doubt the scriptures and then lost their faith all-together. If they were to return to the same faith later are they not still saved?
I think of Peter who denied Jesus but then bitterly repented and returned… he was saved. Judas on the other hand felt sorry but didn't turn to God for forgiveness and restoration, and was not saved.

How can a person be born again if God selected who he wanted?

“# “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that bears no fruit, He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit, He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean through the word which I have spoken to you. Remain in Me, as I also remain in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, neither can you, unless you remain in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who remains in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit. For without Me you can do nothing. If a man does not remain in Me, he is thrown out as a branch and withers. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. “As the Father loved Me, I also loved you. Remain in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, even as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:1-10‬ ‭MEV‬‬
Jesus wants us to REMAIN in him, if Jesus is asking us to remain in him, it is because we can fall away from the faith.

Very uneducated teaching here that will lead many astray. God says he will blot out your name in exodus 32:33 even in verse 32 moses even acknowledged he could be blotted and begged god to remove his name instead. This is when we were under the law.

Even david mention removing peoples name out of the book of the living in psalms

Revalations 3:5 mentions how god would not blot someones name if they overcame ( the world )  but the fact that God still mentions "blotting out" means that removing somones name is still an option for him. This is when we are under grace.

Revaltions 22:19 talks about how if anyone add to this book of prophecy or removes from it their name will be taken out of the book of life.

Wow so if God was blotting out names when we were under the law. And he still will be blotting out names we we are under grace…what makes you think he isnt blotting out names right now ?

Revaltions 20:15 says " and whoever's name was not found written in the book of life ( especially if God removed it ) was cast into the lake of fire

If your in the book of life you are saved. If you are removed from the book your salvation has been lost due to your choices….simple sound doctrine….but who will belive…..

You will be held accountable for what you teach cause this will lead many astray and have them thinking they can still enter heaven regardless of there habituall sinfull lifestyle…..you have been warned….repent! And fear God
