Last week, we presented a few points regarding why people leave the church. This week, I would like to address the fallacy of teaching that it is impossible to fall away, or that there is no chance someone could lose their salvation. Such a position evokes numerous questions and stands in contrast to the Scriptures. Think about it for a minute, if someone cannot fall from grace, or if one cannot lose the gift of salvation, meaning no entrance into heaven will be supplied, then how do you answer these 10 questions:
The questions don’t stop there either! If someone can’t fall from grace, then … why should we meet together with the church? Why should we study the Word? Why should we walk in the light? Why should we do anything more than just be baptized? It makes NO sense! We need to really take into consideration that when a doctrine produces so many questions, contrary to plain Scripture, then there must be something wrong with it! The Bible is simple and easy to understand. It is not necessary to do “circus acrobatics” in order to reach a correct conclusion. Just read what the Bible says to do, do it, and be honest with yourself.
Finally, think about this: Suppose you are standing before the throne of God on the Day of Judgment. Which of the following is more secure to believe? (A) To believe in the possibility that one could fall and not make it to heaven, so you work hard to be obedient and stay on the path? Or, (B) believe it is NOT possible to fall away, and essentially, “in the end” will we will all get there? One of these thoughts is very dangerous, the other is in harmony with the Bible. Which one will you choose?
