  • No.If Jesus saves you,then you will have the desire to glorify Him.The bible says you WILL be conformed to the image of Christ.This American Christianity is a false salvation,with all you have to do is pray a prayer and ask Jesus to come into your heart.That is not found in the scriptures.That is why in 1John test your salvation.Bottom line if you are of Jesus your life will reflect Christ,and not the world.
  • Not true. Although I am no longer labeled a "christian", I do not beleive the answer has changed. You are forgiven only for the sins that you have asked to be forgiven for. Forgiveness applies to past sins not future sins. If you want forgiveness for sins you may commit in the future you must ask for them in the future.
  • Sure, why not.
  • It is true if you believe it and not true if you don't. No one alive "knows"..we hope/pray/believe/project/conjecture/opine/imagine but no one who is alive "knows" anything at all. Hopefully at the end when we die we will know. Until then to each his own..you believe what resonates with you and you avoid that which doesn't. :)
  • Here's the true test: go out in the middle of the ocean, make sure there is nobody around for miles, tie a couple of weights to your feet and jump overboard. Then ask Jesus to save you - if you miraculously float up and walk on water, then I'd say it's true. If, on the other hand you drown, oh, well, you have your answer
  • Not true......it is not once saved always saved like alot of Baptist believe. There is scripture to prove that GOD will not be fooled nor will he tolerate a deceiving heart.
  • Not true... Right up to Armageddon, we have to keep trying to do the right thing...to be classed as righteous. (Zephaniah 2:3) seek Jehovah, all YOU meek ones of the earth, who have practiced His own judicial decision. Seek righteousness, seek meekness. Probably YOU may be concealed in the day of Jehovah’s anger. ...PROBABLY... no one can continue to sin and then expect to reap the reward.
  • Christ came to save us FROM our sin, not to save us IN our sins. Ezekiel clearly taught that a righteous person who turns away from his righteousness will be condemned (http://scriptures.lds.org/en/ezek/18/20-30#24). So, as others have already stated here, one must continue to strive to do God's will and repent when we fall short.
  • No disrespect intended towards those of a different opinion, but these seem to imply that some who were saved, including those who have tasted the heavenly gift, could fall away. Please look them up for yourself, as my understanding of why these were written may be different than yours.

  • Your question regards "Eternal Security" What does the Bible say: Luke 12:8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God Philippians 2:12 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. James 1 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
  • That's the way it should be for religious people, but for some that's not enough.
  • This "meme", or mental programming of a [historical] Jesus, has been pounded into the heads of billions of people for nearly 2,000 years, such that it is assumed a <priori> by many--including "scholars"--who have put forth an array of clearly speculative hypotheses hung on highly tenuous threads regarding the "life of Jesus". Interestingly, many of those such speculators themselves claim that a historical Jewish master named Jesus was deified or "evemerized" by his zealous followers who added to his mundane "history" a plethora of supernatural qualities and aspects widely found in many ancient myths and mystery religions. All of these fables surrounding this character named Jesus, as well as many others biblical tales--such as the great deluge, etc--no doubt have considerable cultural value within a mythological setting; but scrutinized as "historical facts" they are asinine and absurd, for they hold no more truth than a fat guy with a funny looking red custom on and a flying reindeer.
  • Believing and living a pure life are not the same thing. Even Satan believes in God. But, in the end, everyone will be saved eventually. Some will take a llllloooooootttttt longer than others. Their road up from hell will be a long and arduous course but, whatever level they find themselves on, they put theirself there. People like to blame others, especially God, for there own sins. When God looked for Adam in the garden instead of saying, "Here I am, Father," he said, "The WOMAN that YOU gave me caused me to sin."
  • If you choose to live any kind of life afterwards, you never had faith in Jesus Christ to begin with.
  • Not true, you will be forgiven for past sins and wrongdoings not for future ones. It is up to you to change your ways and live according to your faith not what you want, this once you are restarting your life after forgiveness.
  • No, that is patently false.
  • Not true, accepting Jesus is a wonderful thing for a person to do and with that is a responsibility of serving Him and telling others about Him and also studying and hearing His word because we have to pay attention to what He wants of us. Of course we can all 'backslide' I have done it myself but I came back to where I was before I went off the deep end and now I will not go back to my old ways this is where I enjoy being.
  • Not true.
