Good works do have direct value in regards to eternal salvation!

Jesus said: Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, [29] And shall come forth; 👉 THEY THAT HAVE DONE GOOD 👈, 👉 unto the resurrection of life 👈; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. John 5:28-29 Paul confirmed: Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; [10] 👉 But glory, honour, and peace 👈, to 👉 EVERY MAN T

Was that thorn in Paul's flesh sin?

First, here is the verse that many people who believe in greasy grace point to in trying to justify their own sin by claiming that Paul also struggled with sin. The mindset they have is, "if Paul sinned then I'm OK in my own sin". And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 2 Corinthians 12:7 Now verses 7 through

Do we tremble or do we make excuses?

We ought to tremble if we are not right with God but instead many people today choose to find excuses for their not being right with God. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31 OSAS, Preservation of the Saints, Calvinism, Reformed theology, carnal christians, original sin, a

Carnal in Corinth. But we're they safe?

Were the carnal (sinners) in Corinth saved? Well, yes and no. I will explain by using all of Paul's letter to the Church in Corinth. First we need to define carnal. CARNAL, adjective. Pertaining to flesh; fleshly; sensual; opposed to spiritual; as carnal pleasure. Lecherous; lustful; libidinous; given to sensual indulgence. Paul gives a definitive description between the flesh (carnal, living in sin) versus the spiritual (those who are in Christ Jesus) in Romans chapter 8 v

Stop pretending the cup is clean throughout!

Jesus clearly taught that sin starts in the mind which is a matter of the spirit. This is well before sin becomes a matter of the flesh. No flesh has ever committed sin without a carnal mind to start with. Flesh does not commit sin, the person does, and they do so from within first. Doctrines such as OSAS and Original Sin attempt to justify the outside of the cup while the inside is still wretched. Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and w

Don’t play games with this.

Even those who were sanctified by God can die in their sins. The soul that sins dies whether once saved or not. The soul that sins without repentance, period, goes to eternal punishment and not heaven. If you do not overcome until the end your name can and will be removed from the book of life. You will go to hell without repentance. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful

That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke...

That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke... Those of the "I can't help but sin" crowd, the OSAS, Augustinian-gnostic-"born-a-sinner" folks, if you were honest with your "your gonna sin so just go on with it" doctrines then you would actually heckle and even correct Paul, the very one you claim supports your warped presuppositions, if he were to engage with you on this topic. Whenever anyone says it is possible to go on without sinning a lot

Obedience to God is essential...

...incredibly essential... Be very careful to not minimize the essential need for obedience to God. One cannot be saved without obeying Jesus. If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. John 15:14 One cannot be saved unless they obey the truth through the Spirit. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pu

Warning!!!

Paul said the remission of sins provided by the blood poured out on the cross was for PAST sins! This is critical. Everyone should get their brains and hearts around this! Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are PAST, through the forbearance of God; Romans 3:25 Peter confirmed this when he referenced OLD SINS in 2 Peter 1:9. He in no way said present or future unrepentant sins in

Born again and then die again? What is this nonsense?

OSASers tend to use this as a concept to mock the biblical fact, that one can indeed die again, in the spiritual sense, just as they can be born again. They think that Nicodemus’ questions to Jesus in John chapter 3 verse 4 regarding Jesus’ comment that you must be born again (verses 3 and 7) and then Jesus’ response back somehow qualifies becoming “unborn” as being impossible and illogical. This thinking really is a logically fallacious shell game of concepts… Nicodemus was

Something is missing in the popular gospel of today!

Something is truly missing in the popular grace alone and no works gospel that is preached today. The much overlooked component in this process is works through obedience to God. God's Word clearly shows this: If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. John 15:14 And being made perfect, he became the author of ****eternal salvation unto all them that obey him**** Hebrews 5:9 By neglecting to address this leaves ground

Inherit...

Another word passed over or redefined in modern doctrines. Many people today insist on laying claim to the inheritance of the kingdom of God and in doing so they also claim it can never be taken from them. Essentially what these people are believing in is "Once inherited, always inherited". Historical biblical context as well as the clear contextual definition of both "inheritance" and "disinherit" states exactly to the contrary. And the Lord said unto Moses, How long

Once again, context is key…Jude 1:21-25, etc…

The nefarious comments from OSASers continue to lead many astray. A OSASer boldly proclaimed the following statements in an obvious rhetorical fashion: “Is God able to save you? Is He able to keep you?” On it’s face one would be tempted perhaps to say that this sounds good. But as what seems to happen so many times, some, if not many people fail to take on the full counselof God’s word and end up getting it all wrong. They chose to float bits of scripture around and separate

Obedience is better than sacrifice...

OSAS sacrifices obedience and yet obedience is better than sacrifice. If you doubt this claim as an OSASer then ask yourself, is obedience required of a believer to enter into eternal life with the Father? Then read the following scriptures to see if your assumption lines up with God’s word. It is sad when the winds, sea and even unclean spirits obey Jesus yet OSAS assumes that obedience is not essential. But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even th

Stop defending sin and if you are currently sinning then stop sinning.

Don’t be a fool. Read this to the end before you jump to any presupposed conclusions. He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. Proverbs 18:13 Stop defending sin and if you are currently sinning then stop sinning. You were purged of your old sins but if you do not make your calling and election sure through obedience to God you will fall. Obedience to God does not include sinning. If you have sinned then confess it to God and repent so a

Calvinists excuse suicide where God does not unless the sinner repents.

John Macarthur, true to his Calvinist presuppositions, errs once again away from biblical truth in his position on suicide. https://www.gty.org/library/questions/QA143/can-one-who-commits-suicide-be-saved He cites Colossians 2:13-14 as proof that all sins, past, present and future, are forgiven thus excusing suicide in the process. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Bl

How long is eternal life?

How long is eternal life? That is a question being asked over and over again by proponents of OSAS. One of the main reasons I embraced OSAS for much of my life was this exact question regarding eternal life. To me it made sense that eternal life was for eternity in heaven. Well it certainly is eternal but I was looking at this from a self-centered perspective in that if I had eternal life then I was going to live forever in heaven no matter what I did. I really liked that

A warning from Peter

The Apostle Peter warned that this is a very real potential. I suspect that some people may claim that there is an error in what Paul wrote when he specifically stated that the remission of sins through the blood of Jesus Christ was for past sins only. Most likely though, as I have seen on many occasions, they will just twist this around to say something completely different in order to fit within their deadly doctrine of OSAS. Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation thr

Take heed, brethren!!!

...It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God... When one identifies sin they need to immediately repent. They should not look for excuses to continue on in the sin. We should know that it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God and that He can destroy both body and soul in hell and we should know that hell is very real. Knowing these facts should help us to not take the grace of God lightly or out of context. Take heed, brethren, le

Non-Biblical refuse circa 1521...

Read the following very closely for what Martin Luther said here… “If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, f
