    I would have liked to hear commentary from Todd regarding Matthew 12:31-32 in relation to this topic. My belief is that a legitimate believer cannot / will not commit this sin, but I think it could have been helpful to provide some clarity. Thanks.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to chime in. Here’s a message Todd did that I think you will enjoy. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

  2. Paul says:

    If course you Can lose your Salvation.

    Rom 11:17-23, “But if some of the branches were broken off [the Jews], and you, a wild olive shoot [the Gentiles], were grafted in their place to share the richness of the olive tree [Jesus Christ], do not boast over the branches…For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you…Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off.”

  3. Paul says:

    Of course you Can lose your Salvation.

    Rom 11:17-23, “But if some of the branches were broken off [the Jews], and you, a wild olive shoot [the Gentiles], were grafted in their place to share the richness of the olive tree [Jesus Christ], do not boast over the branches…For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you…Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off.”

  4. Paul says:

    This is further seen in Galatians, chapter 5. Verse 1, “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand fast therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery [sin].” If once saved always saved is true, then one cannot “submit again” to a “yoke of slavery,” and Paul’s warning makes no sense.

  5. Paul says:

    1Cor 10:12 – Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing secure should take care not to fall.

    We should ask ourselves – If your salvation is guaranteed upon “Accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior,” why would Paul write such a warning to those in Corinth? This is because our salvation is not guaranteed. We must be diligent and work out our salvation lest we fall. God grants us Grace to overcome temptations and avoid falling into sin, if we remain close to Him.

  6. Paul says:

    Luke 9:23 – Then he said to everyone: “If anyone is willing to come after me: let him deny himself, and take up his cross every day, and follow me.

    – Christ explains to us that we must take up our cross daily. Salvation is not a one time guarantee.
