I’d like to point out that the ONLY verses that imply you CAN lose your salvation are written to unbelieving Jewish people (Hebrews 3:12) and to false prophets or teachers who Jude says are UNGODLY unbelievers and NOT filled with the spirit (Jude 1:19).
If you aren’t secure in your salvation, can you really be secure of anything?
You weren’t there (Hebrews CH 6) when the covenant was cut between Father and Son. Why? You weren’t there so YOU can’t mess it up!
Flat out. If you can lose a gift that was freely given, then Jesus is a liar. Not one snatched from His hand and He shall raise up ALL given to Him on the last day.
Is the allowable backsliding time frame 6 months? A year? Two years? Five years? Ten? Seriously. How long until Jesus who I am fused to rots out of me?
At what point do I lose the indwelling of His Righteousness?
Jesus is your portion, and after your meltdown - the God of all grace will personally restore you. 1 Peter 5:10
There is no difference in the saved teen who goes through earthly hell of rape/abuse and backslides for 15 years ... than the last minute deathbed salvation. Both get the same wage.
Eternity with Jesus.
