It is a wonderful thing to be a Christian! I’m so glad that I have come to saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and placed my faith in Him for the forgiveness of sin and the salvation of my soul! The Bible warns us repeatedly that satan would try to infiltrate the church through false doctrine and foolish heresies. We must be on guard.
Christianity is being polluted and diluted by many unbiblical ideas. False Doctrine is infiltrating Christianity at an alarming rate. False Teachers and unbiblical philosophies are being accepted by many. Some groups that were considered cults from their beginning have now been included into “Christianity”. Every doctrine and idea must be compared to Scripture. It is our sole authority for faith and practice.
One of the oldest false doctrines is the idea that once you are saved by faith in Jesus, you can be unsaved; once you are forgiven, you can be unforgiven. It teaches that you are not secure in salvation until you reach Heaven. This false doctrine causes a lot of damage to the cause of Christ. The Bible teaches us God wants us to know that we have eternal life.
What about the verses that make it sound like you can lose your salvation? There are some and these should be studied thoroughly. There are great gems of truth in these verses once studied that will help you. However, after years of study I do not know of one verse in Scripture that teaches the loss of salvation. One of the laws of Bible study is that you don’t use an obscure verse to override an obvious verse. If you ever have been saved, you always will be saved. You didn’t save yourself and you can’t lose yourself. The question is have you been truly born again? Only you and God know for sure.
The security of the believer is a wonderful truth. It is not a license to sin, but an overwhelming reason to live for God. You can live in confidence knowing that you are saved and spend your life telling others about your wonderful Savior.
Here are 25 Biblical reasons you can’t lose your salvation:
The Bible Says you can KNOW that you have eternal life.
1 John 5:13 “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.”
