Comments From Others - Can I Fall From Grace, or Once Saved Always Saved?
God also says "I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you!" Once you have been truly saved, nothing can take you out of God's hands. And that includes sin! Sin
doesn't wash away God, my friend. God washes away sin. I do not agree that our salvation is dependant on us. If it is, it's not worth 2 cents! The bible clearly
tells us that our very best is as filthy rags. Our salvation is based on something much more reliable than our behavior.
God will not forsake us IF we continue to do His will,
Ps 9:10 "And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast
not forsaken them that seek thee".
Ps 37:25 "I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous
forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."
but, IF we FALL AWAY from Him, He will forsake us.
2 Ch 24:20 "And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which
stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have
forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you".
God can not look upon sin, even when it was upon Christ while dying on the cross.
Mt 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama
sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
There are numerous scripture which agree with this. Scripture referring to brethren, who are
truly saved or they would not be referred to as brethren. (Heb. 3:12, Heb.4:1)
How much plainer can 2 Peter 2:20 be?
2 Peter 2:20 "For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the
knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the
beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from
the holy commandment delivered unto them."
“The misconception is clearly in the thinking that we are able to save ourselves. This is not
the case. We cannot save ourselves, we can however condemn ourselves.
Thank you for your comments.
