From a recent Post on Facebook…
Shadeii Tania Arnold: I don’t believe in once saved always saved because i think it is unbiblical. God forgives us of our past sins but when you get new ones you have to ask him to forgive you, and be willing to repent and turn away from sin. Forgiving one of future sins, has mislead and confused many people to think they can do anything they want to such as sleeping around with every Dick, Tom, Harry, Betty and Sue cause God has forgiven everything. They have another Jesus. This Jesus produces false converts. Jesus Christ is Lord.
If you did not truly Repent (accept you are dead in sin) and accept and need Christ fully, he is the Son of God, crucifixion, resurrection, washed in his blood, in the first place, then you are not truly saved.
But if you are:
Please explain the following scriptures…
If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that.
1 John 5:16
And this one:
We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them.
1 John 5:18
And this one:
But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
What shall we say, then?
Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
By no means!
We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.
For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
Paul tells us clearly that until we leave our earthly sinful body the battle between flesh (sin) and Spirit is there with us until that day…
As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.
For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.
For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.
Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
What a wretched man I am!
Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?
Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin. Romans 7:17-20, 24-25
We are Saints that sin…
We absolutely should not sin on purpose. This is a ridiculous notion and anyone believing this will answer for it on JUDGMENT day…
There is only one sin that leads to death (losing Salvation) and that is denying the Holy Spirit’s existence…
