Oct 5th Bible Study is on "Can You Lose Your Salvation". I'm mildly encouraged at how our last study turned out, and I expect more of the same this week.
And that's essentially the conclusion that we came to in October when we had this study.All that matters in the end is that when you die or when Christ comes for his church is that you love Jesus and you are serving him. If you are doing that than it doesn't matter if it is once saved always saved or you can lose your salvation.
What about those who aren't saved. It's easy to say that God chose all of us Christians to be saved, but at the same time, you're saying He condemned everyone else. That's why I've never been comfortable with predestination, John Calvin or Augustine. We, as humans, certainly could never have a chance to get to heaven if it weren't for Jesus. (To say otherwise would make his death and rez meaningless.) But I believe that we are still held responsible to turn toward God and accept that grace which he has freely offered us. Those who do are Christians, and those who don't will find out too late they've made a bad decision.oh, by the way, feel free to argue with me, I love discussion. Besides, if i don't know by beliefs inside and out how can i defend them? (Holy Spirit would do it for me but anyway). So by all means please discus this and anything else i post, i love "arguing".
