Now, can you see why I get so upset with those people who believe that they can lose their salvation? They are IMPUGNING God’s Character; His Words; His Promises; His Integrity; and His Abilities! They REFUSE TO BELIEVE the written record, and PREFER TO BELIEVE a LIE!

IF you could lose your salvation – all of these things would have to take place (and there are a lot more!). When we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him as our Saviour, we aren’t just: “saved from Hell” (The Lord is not just a “Fire Escape” from “Hell”; or a “Life Preserver” to avoid the Lake of Fire. He hasn’t just given us a “Get Out Of “Hades” Free Card. When we receive the Lord Jesus Christ there’s a whole lot more that takes place in a believer - far more than most Christians are aware of! After King David had committed the heinous sins of adultery and murder, he wasn’t worried about “LOSING” his salvation – he didn’t ask God to “RESTORE” his salvation he asked God to: “Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” [Psalms 51:12]

Please tell me: IF you can lose your Salvation, HOW do you get all of these things back? HOW do you get RE-PARDONED; RE-JUSTIFIED; RE-BORN; RE-SEALED; RE-ADOPTED; RE-CIRCUMCISED; RE-SEATED; ETC.; ETC; HOW do you become a sheep; a child; a son; a saint; etc.; etc.; all over AGAIN?

IF you can lose your Salvation, just exactly what kind of sin (or number of sins) does it take to lose it? You sure can get in a heap of trouble when you refuse to BELIEVE the word of God!


1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

. . . . . yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written . . . . . Romans 3:4

Excellent points. Yes, their main argument is "He won't forsake us, but we can walk away, or we can pluck ourselves out of His hand". Those were excellent Scripture references to address this. And, you asked how if we lost those things could we get them back..the answer is, of course that we couldn't. Scripture tells us that IF it were possible to fall away, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to be re-saved.


Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
