    Salvation Cannot Be Lost by Vince Finnegan

    Salvation Cannot Be Lost by Vince Finnegan

    The myth we bust this morning is eternal security--the doctrine that people who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior cannot lose their salvation. This is also known as "once saved, always saved.” This belief has many supporters in Christianity, and the biblical evidence for it seems strong. However, this subject has been disputed since the Reformation, 500 years ago. The importance of rightly understanding it is paramount.

    Romans 3:10-24 The great discourse in many of Paul’s writings is busting the myth that adherence to the Law of Moses is necessary to receive salvation.

    Galatians 2:21; 3:21-22

    Ephesians 2:1-9

    Is everyone saved?

    Romans 3:22-24 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction;
    for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
    being justified as a gift by His grace…

    Galatians 3:22 But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

    Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God

    The answer is: only those who have faith; so what is faith?

    What is faith?

    James 2:14-26 Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. (V.17)

    Matthew 7:21-29; 10:22; 19:16-22; 25:31-46; Luke 8:15

    Romans 2:5-11

    Galatians 5:14-26

    Ephesians 5:1-6

    Colossians 1:21-24

    1 John 2:28-3:10 Yes, indeed, we are saved by grace, but we must have faith to receive it, and all faith has corresponding action or works. If Jesus is your Lord, then you must be submissive to his commandments. He is not your Lord just because you call him Lord.

    Hebrews 3:6, 14; 10:26-29 We are saved by grace. Salvation is accepted by our faith. Faith always has corresponding actions--obedience that endures to the end.

    The Saved Go to Heaven at Death by John Cortright

    The Saved Go to Heaven at Death by John Cortright

    Definition of a myth: a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events; a widely held but false belief or idea.

    1 Tim 1:4; 2 Timothy 4:4
    In the books of Timothy, the Apostle Paul warned about myths and people turning from the truth. We do not want to have a myth or a falsehood be the doctrine for our faith. The Scriptures, the Bible, is our source for truth.

    What is the Christian’s future after death? Be as the Bereans, and search the Scriptures for yourself. What does the Bible say about this important topic? Acts 17:11

    Two Questions:
    1. When people die, do they immediately live on in the afterlife?
    2. After we are raised from the dead in the future, where is our final dwelling place? Is it heaven or a new Paradise on earth?

    So what happens when a person dies?
    Psalm 6:5 The Hebrew word sheol means the grave, or the state of being dead - gravedom.
    Ecclesiastes 9:5-6, 10
    Acts 2:29, 34 David is dead and buried. He has not ascended into heaven.

    When will the dead be made alive?
    Hebrews 9:27
    1 Corinthians 15:20-23

    John 5:25, 28-29; 6:39-40
    The Bible teaches that the dead will be raised again to life in the future - in the last day at the resurrection from the dead.

    There will be a resurrection of the just and a resurrection of the unjust.
    Daniel 12:1-2
    Revelation 20:4b-6 There is a 1,000 year reign of Christ between these two events.
    Acts 24:14-16

    What will we inherit in the eternal age - heaven or the earth?
    Matthew 5:5 - The gentle (the meek) will inherit the earth.
    Romans 4:13 - The promise to Abraham, the father of faith, is that he would inherit the world - land!
    Psalm 115:16 - God made the earth for man! We were designed to be earth dwellers!
    2 Peter 3:13 - There is a promise of a new heaven and earth.
    Revelation 2:7 - He who overcomes will eat of the tree of life in the Paradise of God.

    The Bible begins in the book of Genesis with man in Paradise on earth, and the Bible ends in the book of Revelation with those who have faith living in Paradise on a new earth.

Wonderful teachings

It’s overwhelming searching for a church. Living Hope International Ministries provides insightful teachings as well as a community you’re proud to belong to. It’s too easy for biblical teachings to be misconstrued by biased opinions and taken out of context. LHIM sticks to the Word of God, which is refreshing. Try listening to different teachers and enjoy!
