Linda, great post you put down. I'm happy you believe those truths, and glad you posted them.

Cluny--//Our security is (or should be) in Christ Jesus Who is eternal...
But how many people are putting their security in their own act of faith?
//
EXCELLENT POINT.

Some people look back at their decision for Christ and keep wondering. Are they saved? Can they "stay" that way?
But it's not what they did that saved them. It's what Christ did on the cross!

How much better to depend on Jesus Himself. HE is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE... for eternity.
Jud 1:24-25 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.

Eternal salvation is only eternal to those whom keep it, for eternal salvation is lost to those whom choose to backslide into perdition. If you really need something to help you, and I give you that something that you lacked, you will receive it gladly: but there are some whom after receiving the gift will then later forget the good thing that I gave them, and go back to not honoring that good thing you were given, and so they are again found lacking: and such it is with eternal salvation, they are given eternal salvation which they have discarded for to have eternal sin in its place.

Most definitely. "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in [us, His chosen], will complete [it] until the day of Jesus Christ." Phil 1:6
---Josef on 6/27/10

In the same book Paul tell us to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling"..."so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain"... I do not consider that I have made it my own, but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, (Phil 2:12
..3:10-12) must endure till the end!

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life through his name.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Once saved always saved is false, and from the pit.
---Eloy on 6/28/10


John 17:3
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Once you are born, you are someone's son or daughter. That never changes. Once you are born again, you are God's son or daughter. That never changes even more so because He is able to finish what He has started. If necessary, one may be delivered up to Satan to the destruction of the FLESH, that the SPIRIT may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. That's mercy.

Josef, thank you for your answer. What it amounts to is Faith in what Christ said. What eternal means is "eternal" not maybe eternal. People here make eternal condition over a period of time. There is no conditions to the children of God, they have been bought already. One sacrifice.

cluny: "OSAS is true, but we're not saved until we are in heaven."

Not quite. Salvation is not achieved until two things occur. (1) The 2nd coming of Jesus to resurrect and take us to heaven, and (2) Our names are still written in the book of life (have not previously been blotted out). God is faithful to do His part in our salvation, so that the "offer" of salvation and the power to obey is always there, but we can reverse this salvation at any time by our own choice to sin and have our names blotted out of the book of life.

Being Eternally secured according scriptures, he ( man & woman ) that endures to the end, the same shall be caved.
Not before.
---Lawrence on 6/25/10


OSAS is NOT the same thing as eternal security.

OSAS is true, but we're not saved until we are in heaven. Even St. Paul talks about "the salvation to be revealed," or "our salvation is nearer than when we first believed."

With eternal security, it depends on where we are looking for it.

Our security is (or should be) in Christ Jesus Who is eternal--that is true.

But how many people are putting their security in their own act of faith?

It's a big difference--but often too subtle for some people to grasp.
