Excerpt:Throughout Scripture we find examples of those who profess Christ, but later turn out not to be saved. One example is Demas.
Impossible to forsake something you never had!!!!!! He quit working with Paul...he left the job....he bugged out....period...
and to get back to Demas, not one person can counter the words of Paul, who spoke highly of him and called Demas a fellowworker, and state that Demas was NOT SAVED. Paul knew if he was saved or not. you cant work closely with someone and not know them very well, especially as sensitive to the Spirit as Paul was.
If he had indeed been saved, he would never have left his post.....
Same with Judas Iscariot.....he was with Jesus for three years...doing the work of Jesus....his action speaks louder than words....he was as saved as the Pink Rabbit!!!!!
