i had a discussion today with someone about what amounts to this question
"once saved always saved?"
my side in the argument was "no."
this is a major point of contention today for believers.. a sort of civil war if u will, however those who believe they can be saved once and never lose their salvation are in for a rude awakening because Jesus didn't die on the cross for us to continue in sin
i am not saying ur gnna be perfect.. if u were perfect u'd be Jesus and none of us are Him, u might sin unknowingly or mess up a tad bit but once u commit to Christ you shouldn't say "i'm good so i can sin and still go to heaven now" because that is playing with God
am i wrong? meh, u be the judge.. but judge as the Bible says one should judge.. which is.. "with a righteous judgement" john 7:24
i decided to research and talk about this subject.. i combed through scriptures and came up with a number of verses which shed light on this issue
here's the document i put together:
pc(^right click, save link as)
so if u are an inquisitive person, this document which is full of appropriate scripture should help u out..
it got so long that i made it into a document as opposed to posting it here.. i would cut them down to size but there is a lot to chew on to where its hard to make it short and sweet
again, if anyone has the question, "once i accept Christ am I surely going to heaven no matter what?" ..then carefully read the document
