More On Gay People In The Rapture

Q. I’ve read your reply to the person who questioned whether the unrepentant homosexual woman would be taken in the rapture, and I disagree. I have read your answer to that person, and  you say that nowhere in the NT does it say our salvation can be taken from us. Technically, you are right. Nobody can snatch us out of Jesus’ hand against our will, but we can voluntarily walk away. Continue reading…

OSAS And Repentance

Q. I concur that the work of the Cross was and is sufficient to remove the stain of sin in any and all souls, but what happens with those repetitive sins that are not repented of (turning away from)?  OSAS gives argument to the devil’s claim in Job that Job only does it because he has no choice.  God did protect his life that he might repent and be forgiven for it, but it would have been Job’s choice to do so.

I believe salvation will come at the end of this life and no being can forcibly take that hope from you, but life is your profession of faith in Christ.  Faith is action not mental acceptance.  James ask the question “Where’s your faith if you are not living it?”  Can a belief that shows no trust save a person?  How can you claim to wish a person well while you, having what they need, will not give it to them?  Continue reading…

OSAS, Freedom Or Enslavement?

Q. I was brought up, like one of your other write-ins, on OSAS indoctrination.  Some years ago the Spirit of God spoke to my heart and said that all these bells and whistles will not save a person, whether speaking in tongues, OSAS, water baptism and/or the wording of the celebration of baptism. A person cannot be sinless, but “THRU FAITH” they can and will sin less. 10 years ago, God called me into the ministry after being totally stunned at how ignorant supposedly smart people could be. I believe the Bible (KJV) is God’s Holy Word and He said what He meant and means what He said. The church has become so liberal that it is becoming self-righteous by changing God into what they are as opposed to us changing into what God wants us to be.  And, in my opinion, is responsible for misleading the sheep to slaughter.

Can We Sell Our Soul To The Devil?

Q. I pray that God blesses you and your family greatly for all the insight you share with all of us on a daily basis!

I have a question. Do we own our souls or are they God’s property? What I’m really asking is, can a person “sell their soul” to the devil?

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…

Where Is Judas?

Q. Sorry, but I know once saved always is not true. Judas was a follower of God.  Is he in heaven or hell? 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. Continue reading…

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?
