Conditional or Eternal Security?

Did you know that this topic is one of the most heated topics in Christian forums today?  People genuinely argue over whether or not one can lose their salvation.

The truth is, the whole truth and nothing but the truth based on the word of God is no.  We cannot lose our salvation.  Once the confession of your faith is made, in an instant the old man is gone (buh-bye) and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit takes over.  That’s forever dudes.  When people say that we can lose our salvation, I always challenge them “well then why do we have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit?  Why would God give us his spirit to live inside of those who believe in him, if we could lose our salvation?”  I get some very confusing feedback after that.

Let’s see what Salvation is.  Salvation is a free gift.  Meaning it’s given with no strings attach.  We just have to accept or deny the free gift of salvation.  What must one do to become saved?  That’s actually pretty easy.  In fact, Paul says it so easy in 1 Corinthians 15:1- 4

“1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;”And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Paul also said in Romans 1:16

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

Paul also said in Romans 10:9-10

9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Oh and lets not forget what Jesus said in John Chapter 3:3, 5-6, 15-18

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Jesus himself told us how we can be saved but he also said, he that believeth on him shall have everlasting life.  In other ways, it’s forever and ever, Amen.  It’s believing in him through faith that we’ve been washed in the blood of the lamb.

The Conditional Security Lie!

I’m not afraid to call that out.  Whoever said that we can lose our salvation, straight up and down lied and what is worse, they calling God a liar in the process; which is so not fair to him.  There was a debt and a ransom so great that just couldn’t afford to pay.  We’re also destined for hell but its only for those who completely denied Christ and each time the gospel is rejected, you’ve said in so many words that you’re not interested.

Some people who believe in this man made doctrine believes that it’s by this verse that we can lose our salvation.  Matt 24:13 “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”  First and foremost, this is NOT any indication that one can lose their salvation and it’s not even for the church (Body of Christ, believers in Christ).  That verse is for those who will be saved during those 7 years when the Great Tribulation will occur (will touch on this another day)  It trips me out how people just take one verse out of the bible and just build a mountain that is full of man made lies.  As Teresa Guidice from RHONJ would say, “Are you freakin kidding me?”

The people who trust in Conditional Security, trust in it because they are afraid, they trust mankind, rather than God.  They go and trust their feelings than what the scriptures said.  They misunderstand scriptures and try to understand it with their own human mind.  They believe that we must work and be good people.  Or they truly were never saved to begin with.

The only thing we’re asked to do is believe and trust in him.  That’s not complicated.  There is a hymn named “I Gave My Life for Thee” that is meaningful to the fact that to say we can lose our salvation is smack in the face to God.

I gave My life for thee, My precious blood I shed,
That thou might ransomed be, and raised up from the dead
I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me?
I gave, I gave My life for thee, what hast thou given for Me?

And I have brought to thee, down from My home above,
Salvation full and free, My pardon and My love;
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee, what hast thou brought to Me?
I bring, I bring rich gifts to thee, what hast thou brought to Me?

Bottom line is there is no such thing as conditional security.  There is no such thing as losing one’s salvation.  If that person lose their salvation or just one day gave it back; as harsh as it seems, they more than like never knew Christ to begin with.

Eternal Security

Eternal Security is biblical.  It’s true.  It’s God’s promise to those that believe in his son Jesus Christ.  Why would he said, “that whosoever believeth on him should not perish but hath everlasting life” if it was possible to lose our salvation.  Again, I ask this…if it were possible to lose our salvation, then why oh why do we receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit upon asking Jesus to be the Lord and Savior of our life?  It’s nonsense to be honest to think that God would do such a thing and then snatch the free gift back when we slip up.  Why do people think so little of our creator like that?

Scriptural Proof of Eternal Security

Jesus said he would never leave us nor forsake us (Heb 13:5, Matt 28:20)

We’re born again spiritually because we became sons of God. (1 John 3:2, Romans 8:15)

We’re NOT saved by works…We cannot work to receive eternal life.  We cannot work to get to heaven.  (Titus 3:5, Ephesians 2:8-9)

We’re sealed until the day of redemption ( Ephesians 4:30)

We’re the body of Christ (Ephesians 5:30, 1 Corinthians 12:18)

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Bottom line is if you are truly born again and you’re apart of the body of Christ, you cannot lose your salvation.  There is nothing to lose and as I stated before, if there were something to lose, you probably never had it to begin with.  Even if you sinned again, 1 John 1:9 makes it clear as to what we as the body need to do to get back in fellowship with God “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  The blood of Christ is continuously flowing and cleansing us, especially when we go against his word but we as believers can never, ever lose our salvation, our sonship, our relationship with God.  It’s eternal.

Praise Be to God in the Highest for Salvation Full and Free!!!!!!
