Affirming and Defending the eternal security of your faith, called OSAS (Once Saved, Always Saved). 

 

Many people who oppose OSAS take verses out of context to make it seem like you can lose your salvation by sinning, but if you examine those passages, many times the passages mean the opposite. The verses must be understood through the broader context of scripture.

They also ignore the fact that you are an adopted child of God, a new creation, a citizen of heaven, and gaurded by the permanent seal of redemption. These are all permanent states, not conditional. See the scriptures for yourself.

or

read this article: https://www.gotquestions.org/once-saved-always-saved.html

 

 

Note: To understand the two different branches of OSAS, look at these articles. The difference is in how they interpret what repentance means, see here: https://www.gotquestions.org/lordship-salvation.html

and here:

https://www.gotquestions.org/easy-believism.html

I believe in Lordship salvation. That means we repent (metanoia: greek, to change one's mind) and believe to be saved, and we are only saved once and cannot not lose our salvation (John 6:35-40). As a result of repentance and of believing, we are drawn towards righteousness (1 John 3:9). Our heart is toward righteousness, though we still struggle with the flesh (Romans 7:19-25). But Jesus intercedes for us when they mess up because He has saved them (Romans 8:33-34). If we can lose our salvation, then we have not been given eternal life because that would mean we have no proomise of living forever. 

 

The author of The Eternal Security book does not recognize descipleship as necessary to be saved (easy-believism), the gotquestions.org article refutes this soundly. However, neither believe sinning once causes a person to be unsaved, which is the point I am trying to make. If you choose to read both arguments, I hope you apreciate how complicated this discussion can get. 

 

Note: A Christian repents (metanoia: greek, to change one's mind) and is drawn to righteousness because of their change of mind. Confession, while good, does not have an effect on a person's state of salvation because a Christian has already repented and has been saved through faith. The confession repares the damage done to your relationship with your heavenly father, but you are still God's adopted child (https://www.gotquestions.org/confession-forgiveness.html). Please comment or ask questions in the chat if you would like further discussion.
