I'm sorry Linda, but I must respectfully disagree.
I am not one who takes the word of God lightly and posts that which is merely my opinion, and when it is my opinion, I will state so.
I am one whose daily bread is the Word of God who makes it a point to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God and to meditate in His word day and night.
Furthermore, I listen to at least one sermon daily by men who take the word of God as seriously as I do and who have been doing so for longer than I have so as to grow in grace in and in the knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Now, I could spend a few hours or even days breaking down scripture and presenting it in context refuting the once-saved always saved doctrine, but I don't really have the time right now...
Instead, I will present the following for your review and consideration:http://www.bible.ca/cal-P-refutation.htm
I have reviewed this site and though it is informationally correct, there is at least one or two more verses that they could have included that directly contradict the eternal salvation doctrine.
For example jude 1-19 especially vs 12 where it refers to them as twice dead. In order for one to still be living and Jude to call them twice dead, they had to be dead (spiritually), be regenerated with life (spiritual life, or eternal life, or the nature of God), and become dead (spiritually) once again.
The Bible does not refer to being born again as eternal life because it cannot be lost or revoked, but because by nature of its source, it is eternal in nature because it is spiritual in nature and comes from God. When God created Adam, He breathed (or released) into Adam the breath of life. That is to say Adam was born with the same life in Him that we receive when we become born again. He was the son of God in the same way that we can become the son of God and yet Adam lost His eternal life nature and became a sin natured (or death natured) man.
In the same way that Adam was able to lose his like, we can choose to forfeit ours.
I would like also to post a series of sermons preached by my pastor, one of those men I referred to earlier who takes God's word seriously.
This series is a very line-upon-line, in context view of the topic of whether our eternity is secure.
I highly recommend it...
The series can be found on the following page: http://jmmgrace.com/teachings5.html
and is entitled (16) S163 Is My Eternity Secure?
Please not it is free...
