ETERNAL SECURITY? by steve finnell
Are Christian eternally secure in Christ? Yes, they are secure if they are in partnership with God. God does not force Christians from falling into a lifestyle of sin, however, He does help those who make a honest effort to live a Christian lifestyle.
John 10:27-30....and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.....(NASB)
Can Satan cause Christians to be lost? No, however, Christians have the free-will to denounce Jesus and be lost. Christians have the free-will to live a sinful lifestyle and be lost.
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.(NASB)
Men give way to sin because they choose to sin, not because they cannot resist sinning.
1 Corinthians 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.(NASB)
Yes, Christians can fall from grace.
Hebrews 6:4-6 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.(NASB)
Yes, Christian can fall from grace.
