More On Losing Our Salvation

Q. Ezekiel 33:12 says, “The good works of righteous people will not save them if they turn to sin, nor will the sins of evil people destroy them if they repent and turn from their sins.”   Does this passage go as far to say you can lose your salvation? I thought once He started a good work in you He would finish it? This sounds as if timing is the key, not a commitment you are unable to withhold under your own mortal strength? Continue reading…

Can We give It Back?

Q. My pastor and I were discussing the issue of OSAS.  He doesn’t ever want to push this to find out, but he wonders if one could walk away from what God has done for them.  The Bible does say that no one can snatch us out of God’s hand, but what does it say in relation to us throwing away God’s gift?  Can we willingly walk away from God’s grace and lose our salvation?  Just curious to your thoughts.

Abolish OSAS?

Q. I wish Pastors and teachers would abolish the phrase “once saved always saved” it going to send a lot of people to hell. They don’t teach that if you go back to that life style and stay there, you are not saved. They go right back to the sinful life style thinking that they are locked into salvation. I was in a bible study that taught that, it didn’t sit right with my spirit so I got out of it. Continue reading…

Beating OSAS To Death?

Q. I know we are beating this to death with the OSAS issue but I really have another question. I was having a conversation with a friend who totally believes in conditional salvation and it basically ended in an argument. One of his things he kept bringing up was the fact that we had to repent of our sins and that is why it was conditional. Honestly, I was always brought up to always ask for forgiveness of sins and I do and I believe you have said that asking is more for our benefit. I guess my question here is what if you sin and then you die before having an opportunity to ask forgiveness? How do I argue this point? Continue reading…

Why Do We Still Sin?

Q. If we are to walk in the spirit so as not to sin, why do we still fall prey to sin? I try hard not to sin but I find that I keep slipping up, letting temptation get the better of me. I’m afraid God will just give up on me. What can I do?

OSAS And Luke 8:13

Q. I have yet another question regarding OSAS. I own a bible that has commentary from a well known preacher. I was reading through the book of Luke. In particular, my question is, what is your interpretation of Luke 8:13. The commentary from this preacher on this particular verse, states basically that this verse refutes the doctrine of unconditional eternal security.

OSAS That Isn’t Really OSAS

My question or comment is on OSAS. I believe we have to be careful how we disseminate that truth to others, and I think that is what has been the BIG problem in the OSAS doctrine. Do you believe that the OSAS doctrine has been misunderstood? If so what can we do to change that misunderstanding?

OSAS And Unanswered Prayer

A friend of mine, once a very loving and dedicated Christian, has over the past several years gone through many traumas in her life. Having thrown herself on God’s mercy, and spent many hours in prayer, she has received no solution to her problems. She now believes in her heart that God can not exist. What happens to her Salvation?

What Did God Do On The Eighth Day?

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. (Genesis 2:2-3)
