I asked my sister if she still believes that Jesus is her savior, that he died for her sins on the cross etc… and she says “no”, thus denying Jesus as her Savior now … she accepted Jesus when she was a little girl, but now she changed her mind … she believes in reincarnation to get closer to God very strongly – she doesn’t believe that Jesus is the only way to God any more.
What must I make of that? Can she “lose” her salvation because she changed her mind on who’s her Savior… or will she still be saved?
Can you accept Jesus as your Savior and then deny Him afterward and still have your name written in the Book of Life?
If she repents and re-direct her views and beliefs towards Jesus, well YES, but what if she dies tomorrow without changing back to Jesus as her Savior?
I have learned so much from your wonderful web site. Thank you for making tough questions easy to understand. That having been said I would like to know what Bible version you quote from? It is so easy to understand and I would like to have a personal copy. And, thank you for your Mp3 teachings. I’ve downloaded every single one of them and I love sharing them (and this web site) with others.
Hasten, O God, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me. May those who seek my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” turn back because of their shame.
I found an article on a Christian site where the author claims that the Old Testament contains many prophecies that cannot be fulfilled and promises that have been forfeited because God’s promises to Israel were conditional. He uses Exodus 19:4-6, Leviticus 26, Rom. 9-11 and Matthew 21:42,43; 23:38,39 to back up his teaching.
He states,”God has implemented a “new” covenant or Plan B, because “Plan A” (the original promises and prophecies given to ancient Israel) could not be accomplished because of Israel’s apostasy. Plan B is a bigger and better plan. It contains a brighter set of promises and prophecies and unlike Plan A, it is unconditional!
He also makes this statement: “There is no prophecy in the Bible indicating a third temple will be built and the reason for this silence is simple. God abandoned the nation of Israel at the end of the seventy weeks (Daniel 9) and He has no need for a third temple.” I thought only 69 weeks had been fulfilled.
Am I correct in interpreting his teaching as replacement theology? What would you say in a rebuttal to this? I personally don’t believe in replacement theology and think it is a heretical teaching and was interested in your view. Thanks for your wonderful insight.

Pentecost comes in the early summer (mid May-mid June). It’s the only Levitical Feast Day between the three spring feasts (Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits) and the three in the fall (Rosh Hashanna, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles). The Hebrew name for this Day is Shavuot,
