For Christians, can you lose your salvation?

Asked by: Adam2
  • I think you can loose it

    Judas was a disciple of Jesus that means he was "very saved" and so was Peter. They both committed the same sin, They both betrayed Jesus. Each one reacted to it differently. Peter was torn apart about it and with the chance he asked for forgiveness and now he is in heaven. Judas was also torn apart by it but he didn't ask for forgiveness he probably didn't even think about it, and where do you think he is. He was saved but he is now in hell with out a doubt. There you have it Judas was saved then lost it. Peter could have run away and never asked Jesus for forgiveness, there was a difference between them one believed God could forgive one believed God couldn't. Also the parable of the seed scattered around, the ones that fell into the shallow soil weren't they saved didn't they grow and produce crop? But then the sun came out and it burned them up. This represents a person who took salvation and then got into a fight, but didn't have enough knowledge about the bible so he wilted and was led astray. What do you think the farmer would do if he came to collect the harvest and he saw that plant that was wilted and rotten, he wouldn't pick it.

  • Yes you can.

    You can lose your salvation in a heartbeat. All throughout the Bible, we see that man turns away from God, rejects him, and "turns away towards the evil one." Jesus during his time on earth preached over and over and over about hell, God, being a loving God, sent his son to save us. God has given us everything we need to live a godly life, and the only way to end up in hell is to reject god and walk past the cross of Christ. It is deliberate. This being said, if you make up your mind, you can walk away from God, and end up in hell, because where there is a will, there is a way.

  • Absolutely, you can

    That's why Jesus preached more about Hell than anything else. It's a shame that people are being led astray by Satan. God doesn't want you to go to Hell either. Salvation isn't free so do everything you can to guard it. I don't buy into any of this "once saved, always saved" nonsense.

  • Without a doubt you cannot.

    It's called ETERNAL salvation not sometimes salvation or maybe salvation. The Bible makes it clear very often that our souls are secure with him. There are a few verses that can cause you to doubt without fully understanding what they are saying, this is why it is important to read the Bible not just listen to other people or pick and chose small sections to take out of context. These 100 verses are just a small portion of how often this is made clear:

    Believing that sins will cause you to lose your salvation is saying that we are saved through works which is false, here are just of few verses that tell us that we are saved by faith:
    Galatians 2: 16
    Ephesians 2: 8
    John 3: 16
    John 6: 47
    Romans 10: 9
    1 John 5: 1
    Also read Romans 7, Saul talks about how he keeps on sinning and afterwards says in verse 25 "Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our LORD! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin!

    We need to make sure that we have been saved in the first place though because simply knowing who Jesus is doesn't mean you are saved, you have to believe that he died for your sins and saved you from eternal separation from him because are sins are that serious and there's nothing we can do to ever make up for any of them. Praise the Lord for saving us from what we deserve and giving us eternal life in Heaven.
