Holiness and birthrights...

Can one actually live holy? Absolutely they can. Without holiness one cannot see God. Can one actually fall from God's grace and thus reject their spiritual birth status (salvation) that they previously had? Absolutely they can. It was shown as far back as the garden with Adam and Eve and then later with Esau as well. It happened to them and can happen to any believer today as well unless they take heed and endure until the end. If you compromise your spiritual birthright for fleshly desires as Esau did then you forfeit your own birthright and no false doctrine such as once saved always saved or preservation of the saints can save you. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: [15] Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; [16] Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. Hebrews 12:14-16 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. Hebrews 3:12 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:13
