you are right
once saved is not always saved,
because transgressions commited by saved person rejected Gods grace and His mercy,
it was same with chosen unfaithful Israel,it is same with single ones today saved by grace,and fallen because of their deadly sins according to 2 Peter 2;20;22
inspired words of apostle Peter are directed to saved once, escaped polutions of this world,and start doing same before saving,
........The dog is turned to his own viomits again; and the saw that was washed( from sins by Gods grace)to her wallowing in the mire.

<quoted text>Five were truly saved,five weren't. What's so hard about that?? Que,Satan delights in tormenting believers about their security. He can't have their soul,so he goes for the next best thing: their peace of mind. Just keepin' it...REAL.
All 10 were considered "set apart" or "sanctified"... hence the use of the word virgins. They all expected the Bridegroom to return. 5 were "ready" and 5 were not ready. The five that were not ready were cast into outer darkness even though they begged The Lord to let them in,.
After we accept Christ Jesus as Savior, we are expected to change our lifestyle into a godly one. The problem is that some Believers take their salvation for granted and eventually go right back into an ungodly lifestyle. That don't mean that their conversion wasn't genuine... it just means that they were unprepared. Still yet, they got cast out.

So if I know that I'm a Christian... I'm expected to do what God expects of me. Take having sex outside the marriage covenant and I'm a Christian... you mean I can just go out there and screw around... and then yet claim Once Saved Always Saved? How crazy is that? The only thing that doctrine does is excuse one to go out there and do whatever I want.

Do you think that when the Lord return those Christians who eventually backslid and are shacking up (unmarried) living an ungodly lifestyle are going to meet The Lord in the air?

I can tell you that unless they repent they are not going to enter The Kingdom of God.

Are you saying that Lawest 100 agrees with you also that there are two distinct, individual gods? Have you ever wondered why your nose is so brown?

Good morning to you!
You are not butting in. The post was addressed to Grace but it was inspired by all of us.
Jesus went on to say that all of the law hinges on these two commandments. IMO...as if to say...if you can do these two things...you will have accomplished all that I ask.
Sounds simple doesn't it...maybe it is...maybe we just get so wrapped up in all the rest that we cause these two simple commandments to be difficult.
I love the phrase "love thy neighbor" but I have a tendency to leave out "as yourself". Maybe that is why loving your neighbor is so difficult.
Maybe I should have asked the question...what does it mean to "love ourself". IMO...that is as much part of that commandment as "neighbor" is. It is what I sometimes struggle with the most.
I know though that when I am "okay" with myself that it is easier to be "okay" with the world around me and with others.
Hey J,
Perhaps it's too simple.
IOW, life is about hands ...keep one close and extend the other.

While waiting for Sears to open this morning (noon on Sunday) I went to the donut shop for an apple fritter and a cinnamon bun then out by KSC to look at the water and enjoy. As usual I ended up sharing with the local birds ...crows, blackbirds, and those ones like OYE put on u-tube. Anyway, I was sitting in my pickup holding a peice of c-bun out the window and they would take it straight from my fingers ...some even landed on my hand for a few seconds. It was neat.

<quoted text>I used to believe in once saved always saved... Anyone putting their hand to the plow and looking back is not fit for the Kingdom of God... unless an apostate, of course, repents from a habitual life of sin.
There were 5 wise virgins and 5 foolish virgins... both groups are considered to be believers (invited to the wedding feast)... but only 5 made it into it.
Another good case for "more than faith" required. Thanks.

Yup.

'Baptism' is common in several religions and the waters represent the amniotic fluid of the womb. One is ritually born out of the Earth into the spiritul realm.

No "doctor" yours, didn't you read the scripture saying "those who were partakers of the HOLY GHOST" meaning backsliders, ask God to give you the ability to rightly divine the scriptures.

Have to be fair and add that there is an excellent case for "more than works", too:

"Many will say to me on that day,‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly,‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’" MAtthew 7:22-23

Good morning Grace!
What do you consider..."loving all people"? How do you go about doing that and how do you show that love to others?
If all those people that you are loving does not feel that love...are they just blind or is there something possibly wrong with the love that you are showing?
Has the phrase "love your neighbor" been said so often that it has become a cliche? Have we come to depend on saying the words "love your neighbor" as a way to replace the action of "love your neighbor".
Just what is it to "love your neighbor".
From a Christians standpoint "loving your neighbor" includes concern for their salvation. I have to ask though...is that love shown by harassing...belittling...denig rating...your neighbor at all costs? Is that what Jesus meant?
Did he want you to use people's family...illnesses...past lives to beat them over the head until they submitted?
Did he instruct to call them every name in the book...wish them beaten, raped and murdered in order to scare them into believing?
Again...I will ask...what does it mean to "love your neighbor".
So much research has been done to figure out the hidden mysteries of the Bible...I can't help but wonder...how much time has been spent on trying to find out just how we are to "love your neighbor".
Personally...I find that first greatest commandment much easier to follow....the second much more difficult.
Matthew 5
46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
Luke 6
32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.
***
These are my favorite passages in the Bible. I have read them so many times trying to incorporate them in to my own set of beliefs. It is difficult.
It is so easy to love those that love you...but it takes all that I have to love those that do not love me in return.
Matthew 22
36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it:‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Have you ever wondered why it reads as it does? Why were the words "as yourself" included?
IMO it is telling us that before you can love your neighbor...you must first love yourself. If you do not...how can you even begin to follow that second greatest commandment? Then and only then can you love them as much.
Do you think...that some Christians will reflect on to others what they hate about themselves?
Verse 39 says...and the second is like it. IMO saying that the 2nd is as the lst...giving it equal importance...as if to say...you can not truly do one without the other.
Does "love" on include being concerned about their salvation...or does it also include kindness...compassion...forgiv eness...
What did Jesus mean when he said..."as yourself"?
Maybe what is wrong...we have a whole world full of people that can not love themselves.
Maybe that is where that saying came from that you have to love yourself before you can love someone else.
Okay..out of room...sorry.:-(
Good Morning Annie,
You ask a very important question and as i have said many times before; I admire the way you think. IMHO, Yes, We have to love ourself in order to love others. However, Once I learn to love myself, I should put the concerns of others before my own. Thats not always easy to do. The salvation of others is very important to a Christian but without showing kindness, compassion, sympathy and empathy first; then what evidence of Christ are we showing to someone whose salvation is in question?

Yeap, as the Bible points out without charity we are as a sounding brass and a tinkerling symbol.
