Is salvation the free gift Christians can't lose? I have evidence, this time.
in Religion

Question: "Is once saved, always saved biblical?" Answer: Once a person is saved are they always saved? Yes, when people come to know Christ as their Savior, they are brought into a relationship with God that guarantees their salvation as eternally secure. To be clear, salvation is more than saying a prayer or “making a decision” for Christ; salvation is a sovereign act of God whereby an unregenerate sinner is washed, renewed, and born again by the Holy Spirit (John 3:3Titus 3:5). When salvation occurs, God gives the forgiven sinner a new heart and puts a new spirit within him (Ezekiel 36:26). The Spirit will cause the saved person to walk in obedience to God’s Word (Ezekiel 36:26–27James 2:26). Numerous passages of Scripture declare th(a) Romans 8:30 declares, "And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified." This verse tells us that from the moment God chooses us, it is as if we are glorified in His presence in heaven. There is nothing that can prevent a believer from one day being glorified because God has already purposed it in heaven. Once a person is justified, his salvation is guaranteed—he is as secure as if he is already glorified in heaven.(b) Paul asks two crucial questions in Romans 8:33-34 "Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us." Who will bring a charge against God's elect? No one will, because Christ is our advocate. Who will condemn us? No one will, because Christ, the One who died for us, is the one who condemns. We have both the advocate and judge as our Savior. (c) Believers are born again (regenerated) when they believe (John 3:3Titus 3:5). For a Christian to lose his salvation, he would have to be un-regenerated. The Bible gives no evidence that the new birth can be taken away. (d) The Holy Spirit indwells all believers (John 14:17Romans 8:9) and baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13). For a believer to become unsaved, he would have to be "un-indwelt" and detached from the Body of Christ. (e) John 3:15 states that whoever believes in Jesus Christ will "have eternal life." If you believe in Christ today and have eternal life, but lose it tomorrow, then it was never "eternal" at all. Hence, if you lose your salvation, the promises of eternal life in the Bible would be in error. (f) In a conclusive argument, Scripture says, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:38–39). Remember the same God who saved you is the same God who will keep you. Once we are saved, we are always saved. Our salvation is most definitely eternally secure! 
Questions for people who disagree: Why would Jesus save me just to let me go? What part of eternal life puzzles you? Do you understand that according to Ephesians 2:8-10, salvation preceeds good works, and is maintained by the life Jesus lived according to Romans 5:10?

  • If being "saved" means washing away my sins, then I would rather not. I like my sins! I am greedy, selfish, reckless and bad at keeping promises. Getting rid of any of these would make my life far less enjoyable.

    As I said many times, I only need salvation from my debts. Does Jesus provide that? That would be sweet, and I would readily convert into the religion that brings such a financial boon to its followers.

    But if all I get are some promises of "afterlife" which, for all I know, does not even exist... well, it would be a bad investment, would it not? It would be like buying an invisible coat. Ever read The Emperor's New Clothes? Organized religion resembles that tale quite a bit.

    @MayCaesar Correcy, that is very selfish.
  • @YeshuaBought

    Yes, but so is Christianity; I am simply being open about it, and I do not see selfishness as something inherently bad. Christianity is also all about serving oneself: "If you do good deeds, then you will be saved and ascend to heaven". Notice how the focus is on what the believer gets in the end - this is what justifies all the sacrifices, and not the claim that those sacrifices are good in themselves.
    Giving a penny to a homeless is not a good deed in itself according to the Bible; it is simply a means to the end, which is salvation. Essentially you are buying your future with your deeds.

    Now, if a religion championed doing good deeds with no promise of a reward, then it would not be selfish. But I do not think such a religion can exist: after all, if the religion gives one no benefit, then nobody will follow it, no?

    I'm not trolling. I'm just pointing out that your actions to people who criticize Christianity mean A. you're a hypocrite because in multiple political debates you say you support free speech, but then block @MayCaesar because he called your religion selfish... 

    He has the right to do that and yet you think it's offensive!

    As for the evidence?

    Well, it doesn't make sense because wwwweeeeellllllll....

    The idea that you are once saved sounds ridiculous 


    According to the verses. All sins will be washed away...

    Let's put this idea into reality.

    Someone murders a group of people. But gets salvation, their sins are washed away, basically meaning that their crime is not bad according to God.

    See why that's ridiculous?

    Why is your Chrisitan faith so ridiculous?

    Oh, I can think of so many answers

    A. The Bible is contradictory and supports many immoral ideas, like slavery, sexism, homophobia, racism, extortion etc.

    B. There is no proof NONE that has proven that God exists. You're using blind faith, which is just a waste of time IMHO

    C. The Ark... Yeah because people 2,000 years ago could build a giant wooden ark without cranes, power tools trucks etc AND have it hold 2 of EVERY animal and handle a worldwide flood for 40 days and nights. I'm sure most cargo ships TODAY couldn't handle that!

    You're to expect anyone to think that THIS is seaworthy!? 

    D. Speaking of the flood... If a flood of the size in the bible did happen. Fossils in the ground would be all over the place, and scientists would never be able to accurately match the bones of different organisms  

    E. Brainwashing people to do heinous things. https://www.google.com/search?q=victims+of+religion&safe=active&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=x&ved=0ahukewihu9jugorfahwkmeakhbtib00q_auidigb&biw=1920&bih=963&safe=active ;

    F.

Survival of the fittest at it's finest! apart of evolution! Speaking of which)

    G. EVOLUTION! Evolution is a fact! Proven hundreds of times since Charles Darwin came up with it in the 1850s. In fact, apart of evolution, adaptation, due to global warming, will be in full swing since future generations will need to adapt to the hotter climates. Meanwhile, there is no proof of Creationism. (I think I'm seeing a pattern here...)

    H. Age of the Earth. The Bible claims that the Earth is 6,000 years old. But of all things to prove that it's false... It's tied to John Allen Chau. The tribespeople who killed him have ancestors that can be traced to the original humans 60,000 years ago!

    - A. The Bible is contradictory and supports many immoral ideas, like slavery, sexism, homophobia, racism, extortion etc.

    The Bible supports none of those ideas. In fact, it condemns them.

    - B. There is no proof NONE that has proven that God exists. You're using blind faith, which is just a waste of time IMHO

    Your opinion does not trump reality. There is proof, but just like a racist would have to do with proof of evidence of black equality, you will have to let yourself see it.

    - C. The Ark... Yeah because people 2,000 years ago could build a giant wooden ark without cranes, power tools trucks etc....

    And yet 2,000 years BEFORE the Ark, they built the great stone pyramids. Hauling all those huge stones all the way to the top without cranes, power tools, or trucks.

    - AND have it hold 2 of EVERY animal and handle a worldwide flood for 40 days and nights.

    The Bible did not say the Ark would hold 2 of every animal, or that the flood would be worldwide.

    -You're to expect anyone to think that THIS is seaworthy!?
     

    No. But the Ark was. What was that?

    - D. Speaking of the flood... If a flood of the size in the bible did happen. Fossils in the ground would be all over the place, and scientists would never be able to accurately match the bones of different organisms

    Incorrect. Do you have any evidence that your claim here is true?

    - E. Brainwashing people to do heinous things.

    Subjective opinion. There was no Christianity in Stalin's atheist Russia, or Mao's atheist China, and heinous things was the order of the day.

    - F. Turns people into ignorant fools.

    And yet many of the world's greatest scientists were Christians. The world's greatest artworks and architecture was by Christians, and the Bible is considered one of the greatest works of literature, even by nonbelievers.

    - G. EVOLUTION! Evolution is a fact!

    The only people who say this online are non-scientists who only know evolution as laymen.

    - Proven hundreds of times since Charles Darwin came up with it in the 1850s.

    The "evolution" we have today, is nothing like what Darwin came up with. Darwin's ideas have since  been ditched.

    - H. Age of the Earth. The Bible claims that the Earth is 6,000 years old.

    Untrue. The Bible gives no age for the Earth. It doesn't even imply an age of the Earth.

    No. But the Ark was. What was that? 

    Um, no. There is no way an Ark, half the size of the Titanic, could survive a flood of the size the Bible claims it is. It would be either destroyed compelety, or capsize and sink.

    - D. Speaking of the flood... If a flood of the size in the bible did happen. Fossils in the ground would be all over the place, and scientists would never be able to accurately match the bones of different organisms

    Incorrect. Do you have any evidence that your claim here is true?

    Yeah, go look at an a dig, and tell me that it's just a concidence that the fossils match up correctly, yet if a massive flood, which would mess up the ground underneath it doesn't mess with the fossils

    - E. Brainwashing people to do heinous things.

    Subjective opinion. There was no Christianity in Stalin's atheist Russia, or Mao's atheist China, and heinous things was the order of the day.

    mmmmmmm.... Say that to the countless people who were killed by people who died or were injuried by people brainwashed by religous people. Also you know nothing about the history of Mao and Stalin. Their genocides had nothing to do with atheism, it had to with COMMUNISM!

    Then just say you can't find any, it is a lie to claim there isn't any simply because you can't find any. Illogical too.

    >How are the pyramids relevant?

    >Also you know nothing about the history of Mao and Stalin. Their genocides had nothing to do with atheism, it had to with COMMUNISM!

    That is the line they feed the brainwashed. But the fact is, every atheist state on history has resulted in a genocidal bloodbath. Every one. Do you think that's coincidence?

    >Once again, how is this relevant?

    Perhaps you are wrong about religion turning people into ignorant fools.

    >Where's your evidence

    All of a sudden, you know what evidence is, or that it's needed here? When you submit evidence for the naked claims cluttering your post, I'll give some too.

    >Just like A and C, have you read the bible front and back, page by page?

    Sure. Can you post where the bible gives the age of the Earth? You aren't posting from knowledge, but from nonsense you've read on an atheist website. So, can you post where the bible states the age of the Earth?

    >As someone who was Chrisitan for 15 of my 17 years alive, and forced to read the bible page by page and then take a small quiz by my (now also agnostic/atheist parents. who are sort of extreme) I know quite a lot.

    I don't doubt that you know a lot. But you obviously aren't as familiar with Christianity or the Bible as much as you think you are.

    You certainly aren't ready to be challenging real Christians on the  bible or Christian doctrine.

    What size does the bible claim it is?

    World wide flood, and there is no realistic way a ship from 2,000 years ago wouldn't be torn to shreds. Hell, some of the largest wooden ships from the 1500's couldn't survive in rough waters, so how can a giant wooden ship surivive in what is basically a world wide flood with hurricanes.

    >It would be either destroyed compelety, or capsize and sink.

    And we are to take this on faith? Any idiot can make claims on the board. Do you have anything other than personal opinion?

    Not personal opinion, it's a fact if a wooden ship the size of the Ark, also hold 2 of each animal, wouldn't be stable enough to survive in a world wide flood. It would be a miracle if large animals like elephants and hippos for example didn't cause it to sink due to it being unstable  

    >....yet if a massive flood, which would mess up the ground underneath it doesn't mess with the fossils...

    You seem to be ignorant of recent scientific discoveries. First, may I ask, is there enough water on earth to account for Noah's flood?

    >....people brainwashed by religous people.

    People are brainwashed by atheism too. 

    But, do you have religious people knock on people's door?

    Do you get advertisements about going to a local church?

    Comparing the amount of brainwashing between religious people and atheism is like comparing the size of Bhutan and America. Atheist brainwashing is small, while religious brainwashing is MASSIVE 

    >Also you know nothing about the history of Mao and Stalin. Their genocides had nothing to do with atheism, it had to with COMMUNISM!

    That is the line they feed the brainwashed. But the fact is, every atheist state on history has resulted in a genocidal bloodbath. Every one. Do you think that's coincidence?

    Stalin did the Great Purge because he was paranoid that his followers would turn on him. Not because of religion. It was because he wanted to stay in power

    Mao's Great Leap Forward was bad reforms to help China that resulted in people, but nothing to with religion.

    But according to your logic, I could say  But the fact is, every religious state on history has resulted in a genocidal bloodbath. Every one. Do you think that's coincidence?

    Hitler (A Catholic) committed the Holocaust and WW2

    Ottoman Empire (Muslim) killed 1.5 Armenians (Christians) during WW1

    United States (Christian) killed tribes of Native Americans during Manifest Destiney

    Empire of Japan (State Shinto) like Nazi Germany genocided people during WW2.

    Do you want to go on?

    >Once again, how is this relevant?

    How could ignorant, brainwashed fools be the world's greatest scientists? Have conceived and built the world's greatest architectural wonders? Written the world's greatest timeless literature? How?

    When I mean ignorant fools, I mean misled people who will believe everything that is said from their book (Which in turn makes them ignorant fools, because you're not suppose to believe everything that is said. That's some life advice)

    Perhaps you are wrong about religion turning people into ignorant fools.

    >Where's your evidence

    All of a sudden, you know what evidence is, or that it's needed here? When you submit evidence for the naked claims cluttering your post, I'll give some too.

    >Just like A and C, have you read the bible front and back, page by page?

    Sure. Can you post where the bible gives the age of the Earth? You aren't posting from knowledge, but from nonsense you've read on an atheist website. So, can you post where the bible states the age of the Earth?

    It's not nonsense when you realize the founder of Atheist Republic is a former religious person. Why don't you just stop making assumptions about things 

    >As someone who was Chrisitan for 15 of my 17 years alive, and forced to read the bible page by page and then take a small quiz by my (now also agnostic/atheist parents. who are sort of extreme) I know quite a lot.

    I don't doubt that you know a lot. But you obviously aren't as familiar with Christianity or the Bible as much as you think you are.

    You certainly aren't ready to be challenging real Christians on the  bible or Christian doctrine.

    You're 17? Nice. Have a good day.

    Winston Churchill or the British Government sank the Lusitania to drag the U.S into World War 1. The only conspiracy theory I believe is true

    Gets called an SJW despite evidence against such claims "That's conservative SJWs for you"-Me
