Salvation can One lose it? And if that is possible Just How might One lose it?

And Then Messiah Shall Come

There are some scriptures that give me definite pause when I consider the Calvinist verses Armenian positions with regard to one being able to lose Salvation.

“As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.” 1 Chronicles 28:9 NASB

Obviously Solomon did not yet know the Lord at this point in his life, so this could be considered God’s call on his life. Seek and you shall find, but forsake and—-. And this is a big but. First let me say that you cannot earn you salvation by works, or by anything that you do except to believe what the Holy Spirit is…

  1. BottomlessCoffee007 wrote, “Sometimes we forget how valuable his salvation is.” How very true. And to me the debate as to whether or not we can ‘lose’ our salvation waters down just how valuable salvation is.

    My own stance is this: We can’t ‘lose’ our salvation. We can, however, walk away from God if we so choose.

    There are many arguments one way or the other. To me it comes down to how we view Yehovah (the LORD) God. Is He super strict and insisting on perfection in our walk, or is He a loving Father who, though He can’t abide sin, loves us? One viewpoint has us walking in fear or uncertainty. The other in confidence, though with a hatred for sin.

  2. If you read Sue Love’s blog Run With It, she’s blessed with a great understanding of what salvation is and what it means to keep it and lose it. Recommend reading!

  3. You stated — “with regard to one being able to lose Salvation.”

    My response — If the answer is not known through reading then maybe it can be known by observation.

    “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Pet. 3:9).

    If God is not willing that something should happen what can make him?

    If you have no answer for what can make God do something he does not want to do then you are left with only what he said he was going to do.

    If you know of something that can make him… then I would like to know what that something is.

    Just a thought

      1. Put differently: if there is a division between denominations due to interpretation on this topic then maybe the answer can be found in logical discernment.

        Such as: “If God is not willing that something should happen what can make him?”
