ONCE IN GRACE ALWAYS IN GRACE? by steve finnell
Do the Scriptures support the position of, once in grace always in grace?
Clarification of Hebrews 6:4-6 needed.
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to open shame.(NKJV)
A. It is not impossible for those Christians who deny that Jesus is the Christ to be saved.
B. If a Christian falls away, it is because they were not saved in the first place.
C. There no possibility that a person with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit could fall away.
D. If a Christian fails to repent of a sinful lifestyle, by continuing to murder, steal, get drunk, and commit fornication, they will still be saved because once you are saved you can never be lost.
E. God knows it is impossible to be lost once you are saved, He put Hebrews 6:4-6 in the Bible by accident.
F. Just because a person has been enlighten, and has tasted the heavenly gift, and has the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and has repented, does not mean they are saved. You cannot fall from grace if you were never saved.
G. No clarification needed, just read the Scriptures.
A through G you make the call!
It takes a master of deception to convince people that they can never fall from grace.
