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.
2Ch 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 me?"
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.
