Ways to lose your Salvation Created 16 June 2017

Why is this article neccessary? If indeed we may lose our salvation, and your are being taught otherwise, you make wake up to ensure that you do not lose it but affirm your salvation instead.

I am not going to make too much an argument here for the idea that a born-again Christian may lose their salvation. I believe born-again believer can indeed lose their salvation, but I will leave it to you to decide. All I will do is reference the argument against it and then quote Scripture for it.

Argument against losing your Salvation

It hinges in the Doctrine of Predestination which probably enjoys most support under Calvinists. Predestination may be similar to Predeterminism - not that they neccessarily are the same, but as some believers may understand it[1]. All in all they are very similar; God knows all, is sovereign and can do all things - it is His will that all things happen the way they do, including your or my salvation, and He knew what would unfold and when before time began. Thus, God predetermined your salvation, or mine.

Extending from this line of thinking, because God's will cannot be either determined by any man nor resisted by any man, neither you nor I had a choice in salvation. Thus enters the 'Free will' debate between the proponents of Predestination and Free will - does mankind have a will to decide, or has God determined everything without choice?

Nonetheless, Predestination then suggests that because God has 'predetrermined' that your or I should be saved, [and, does not go back on His Word], you or I cannot become 'unsaved' again;. Thus, because He 'willed' you to be saved He cannot 'unwill' you to be saved and thus become 'unsaved' or lost.

That is the Doctrine of Predestination and how it relates to losing your salvation. I have made it as simple as I could. Apologies to the propnents of this doctrine if I have missed it somewhere - please let me know.
