DO JUDAIZERS HAVE ETERNAL SECURITY? by steve finnell
Do Judaizers have eternal security, are they once saved always saved?
Who were the Judaizers? They were false teachers of the gospel.
Acts 15:1 Some men came down from Judea and began teaching the brethren, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved." (NASB)
Who were the Judaizers? They were Jewish Christians.
Acts 15:5 But some of the sect of the Pharisees who had believed stood up, saying, "It is necessary to circumcise them and to direct them to observe the Law of Moses."(NASB)[THE JUDAIZERS WERE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST]
Who were the Judaizers? They were false brothers.
Galatians 2:1-4.....But it was because of false brethren secretly brought in, who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage. (NASB)
Who were the Judaizers? They were the ones that fell from grace.
Galatians 5:3-4 And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law. 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. (NASB)
Who were the Judaizers? They were the ones accursed for distorting the gospel of Christ.
Galatians 1:6-9 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7 which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ......9 As we have said before, so I again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! (NASB)
Were unrepentant Judaizers once saved always saved? Of course not.
If unrepentant Christian Jews were lost for perverting the gospel by adding to it, what will be the fate of contemporary Christians who distort the gospel by taking away terms for pardon by denying the truth.
Are the men who proclaim that Jesus is simply one of many ways to heaven once saved always saved?
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way , and the truth, and the truth, and the life; no ones comes to the Father but through Me. (NASB)
Are the believers in Christ who are guilty of perverting the gospel by declaring the baptism is not essential to salvation once saved always saved?
Mark 16:16 He who has believed and is baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.(NASB)
Are believers who preach that men are saved by grace alone once saved always saved? Is it not a distortion of the gospel to teach that God selects certain men to be saved and then forces them to believe so they might be saved?
Can those who distort the gospel, but fail to repent be saved?
Galatians 1:8 Let God's curses fall on anyone, including myself, who preaches any other way to be saved than the one we told you about; yes, if an angel comes from heaven and preaches any other message, let him be forever cursed. (The Living Bible -Paraphrased)
Adding to or taking away from the terms of the gospel plan of salvation is distorting God's plan of salvation.
