Name a single person that is saved that hasn't sinned after they were saved?
Now if salvation is lost if we sin than not a single person would be saved.
Sin is a "bad work", If a "bad work" can cause a person to lose the "free GIFT of salvation by the grace God through faith" than what "good work" re-attains that lost salvation?
If salvation is dependent upon our works than it isn't a gift given by the grace of God through faith as God's Holy Word says.
If something is given because of the work done it isn't a gift, it's payment for the work done.

God's Word couldn't be any clearly when it says "we are saved by grace through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast".

Good evening RA, I believe there's a difference in the type of sinning that you are refering to as opposed to what we, Qu, Lee and a few others are trying to point out through the Bible, what you are referring to perhaps ( and you can correction me if I'm wrong ) is our sinning ignorantly, little minor issues perhaps and not really knowing any better, but at some point God's spirit is going to make even that known to our attention in due time and we will have to repent from them in due time. However what we are trying to point out as illustrated in Hebrews 10:26 for example that if we sin willfully and on purpose knowing what we are doing then we are trampling the blood of Jesus Christ under our feet and treating our covenant with him as if it is nothing totally disregarding it, and then it pretty much lets us know that we will live a frightened fear filled life from that point looking forward toward hell and destruction, and I'm sure that no one in their right mind wants any part of that.

I hope that you are feeling better John and that you have a Blessed rest of your day.

How to Be Happy with Who You Are
----------
It's important to bare in mind that every human being in this world is different, and no two faces or bodies are the same. Your 'inferiority' as you may refer to it can also be seen as a unique or individual quality. What makes you feel these things are 'inferior' to everyone else? If there is no norm amongst human beings, how can there possibly be any form of inferiority? Don't give the power of influencing your thoughts to people that don't care about you.
--
Understand that most people aren't out there to judge you. Out of everyone you see, most don't care or know about how poorly you did on your last math test, or how you've gained a little weight since last summer.
--
Seriously consider just what is so 'inferior'. If you have a complex about a specific body part, such as your arms, legs, feet, or hands, think hard about what exactly makes them 'inferior' to everyone else, and write this on paper if it helps. Seriously think about the logic of these things. You're not going to get stopped in the street for having what you think of as 'inferior' hands or feet.
--
Nobody's perfect. They say the grass is always greener on someone else's yard. If there's always someone out there with more money than you, or prettier than you, realize there's always someone uglier than you. There's someone with a bigger nose or heftier than you. There's someone with even smaller or larger breasts than you. Don't focus so much on how you can't compare, but how others can't compare to you.
--
Think about what it is you are really afraid of. What is it you fear will happen, upon the revealing of your inferiority to everyone else? Do you fear people looking, or making comments? These are all valid worries but bear in mind - everyone is different. Any comments you receive are invalid and must be ignored at all costs. It's absolutely certain there is something they think is wrong with them too.
--
Respect yourself. Look in the mirror and give yourself compliments. If you don't respect yourself, who will?
--
REMEMBER, you are NOT alone!

GOD Bless ALL.
Love You GOD .

It has nothing to do with religion. It is a non-christian source for the existence of Jesus. That it isn't mentioned when Chrisitians are trying to "prove" that Jesus isn't fictional is very peculiar.
I wasn't talking religion G, I was just asking if the Jews mention in their Talmud that JESUS is our Savior in response to your posting.....

You are right L100
if we sin willfuly knowing that we are saved and not going to be rejected,
we sin and trample Gods law,Jesus Christ blood and we are fallen from Family of God

but if our sins are natural uncounciess transgressinons need forgivenes of our Father,
Father knows for sure what kind of sins are inside of us,
and God reject those who are not repentant ,sin against Holy Spirit,are rebelious and join ranks of doubtful groups,or support atheistis hateful rethorics

not man explanation justufy our sins,
only God alone is doing this,

it means one time saved,not necessary always saved-
in other words unrepentant wicked by saved fornicators would join Hollines of Gods Home?????

this type of teachings is demon doctrines teachings came straight from first sin in Garden Eden

eating fruit was taking own independent activity without of Gods commandment, and they were not saved those 2 and after them we?

But Adam and Eve before this sin,for sure were saved and joined eternal life with God????after wicked transgression they lost this gift to be saved and were thrown away from Gods Family

God bless you L100

<quoted text>Good Morning G... I see where you are coming from. I just want to add that in my beliefs that one can be born again (same as born of the Spirit) without being baptized in water.
In the early church, after one was Born Again, water baptism would follow almost immediately. Somehow over the milleniums it bacame seen as a more dogmatic and cermonial concept. A lot of books was written about it when in the early church it was just done. For me personally, I would rather follow how Jesus and the early church went about water baptism.
water baprism was repentance before accepting Saviour,
but baptism in death of Christ,is baptism giving Grace and be saved.
Bible NT many times mention about those repentant being in enviroment of God Grace but not saved,
and Bible also point to those who were saved or who can be saved

water baptism today doesn't have any contribution to the Gods Gift only according to only Gods Pleasure,and Gods eternal just purpose.

I would agree with you,
truly saved only follow Saviour without of sins(because each sin is washed in the blood and death of Jesus Christ

water baptism is ceremonial concept,like many others don;t touch,don't do this,that, have to be each week at church etc......

May God bless you Q.

Sin is sin, and God hates all sin. And God's Word says clearly the the only unforgivable sin is "blasphemy of the Holy Spirit".

Satan's sickest trick is to get someone that is saved to believe they can lose that salvation. And that God's Word isn't telling the truth when it says: "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead THOU SHALL BE SAVED" (Romans 10:9-10).

It doesn't say: "thou shall be saved, BUT I might take that gift back because I'm a vengeful God, and Jesus' sacrifice on the cross wasn't enough". And that Jesus lied when He said "it is finished".

And I can see a handful of believers in here have bought into that lie satan is selling. When people buy into that lie they're simply putting themselves right back under the curse of the laws that Jesus fulfilled. Trying to work their way to salvation.

Sad, truly sad.

Sorry to have to disagree with you here RA but the Bible simply does not support the "once saved, always saved" doctrine, once you believe and are convicted in your heart of all the sins that you have committed in your life this only Happens through belief through the Word that you have heard and you follow the steps of repentance and remission of sins, we are not to continue on in sin and still consider ourselves saved.

I have a question to all those who believe in the once saved always saved doctrine..........if a man believes the gospel and follows the package of repentence, water baptism and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and continues on grows in the grace of God but then gradually begins to becomes negligent in the Lord and eventually returns to a life of lying, whoremongering, stealing, drinking and cursing and then end up dying in that state..........is he going to be saved?????

John ... what about those that think they have a free pass to behave as they choose...then pull out the "I am forgiven" card.

Or those that have sinned...claims forgiveness...and the continues to commit that same sin...over and over.

Then there are those that sin...know they have sinned...do they need to ask forgiveness of can they keep using the original pass.

I have heard this debate all my life...

I was taught that when I was aware of sin...that I was to ask forgiveness for that sin...no blanket pass allowed.

I guess my other question would be...what if a "saved" Christian commits a sin...and never ask for forgiveness for that sin?

Are there not responsibilities when one receives a gift...even if that gift is free? What happens if one does not live up to those responsibilities?

"H"...I am just grabbing this post in order to respond to a couple of things.
You asked...what happened afterwards...
A room full of grown men just stopped and stared at me in disbelief...I still remember the looks on their faces. After what seemed like hours they just went back to arguing.
I think that is the point that I decided in my own life to ...just let God be.
(no folks...I did not say...slam the door in his face and ignore him).
Micah was criticized by many for his fishing story with God. I understood it though...understood what he meant.
When I was a child I walked through the fields of our farm...for hours. Walking until I could walk no more. The grass would often be taller than I was and the only way to see was to look straight up.
I never worried about getting lost and not being able to find my way home...no matter how far I went...
It was during those times in the field that I could just let God be.
I think it is also where I learned that God is in the wind...he is in the parting of the clouds...the rain on my face...the color of the tall grasses that surrounded me.
I spent most of my life not sharing my thoughts...not telling anyone how I felt...I kept most everything locked inside...my fears...my needs...my wants. Only out in those fields...alone in the tall grasses could I dare even think those things. I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to.
"I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to."

Again ...
"I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to."

And again ...
"I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to."

Yet again ...
"I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to."

Keep going round that mountain, till you get it right ...
"I felt free to talk to God as I needed to...not as I had been taught to."

Consider this,
Whether one takes the Genesis story literaly or figuitively or not at all ...one truth is evident to anyone with knowledge of the story ...Adam & Eve hid because they were naked, not because their hearts were full of fear.

They had never known fear. They trusted God entirely and without prejudice.

You did good Annie ...

Receiving the KNOWLEDGE of the truth is not the same as actually being saved. Receiving the knowledge of the truth....and REJECTING...it is why the Lord prepared that place called HELL.
