A friend of mine asked a question on his Facebook page last week. It’s an important question. A matter of life and death really.
It’s a question that I have answered innumerable times – for people who just lost a friend or family member, for people whose marriages are falling apart, for people who can’t seem to get control over the sin that continues to dominate them.
It’s a question that everyone asks at some point. My friend asked,
“Salvation: is it eternal or can you lose it?”
I am going to write a series of posts on this extremely important topic. Together you and I will explore the Scriptures – those that seem to say salvation is forever and those that seem to say it’s not.
Before I do that, though, let’s open the comments on the question itself.
- Has someone ever asked you? What was your response?
- Have you ever asked someone else this question? How did they respond?
- What passages can you think of that seem to contradict each other?
And then stay tuned as we ask and answer: “What does the Scripture say?” (Romans 4:3)
