65 The one who endures to the end will be saved.
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord'll be saved. Just like there are different, and separate judgments in the NT (2 Cor 5:10; Rv 22:12; Jn 5:24, 29; Rv 20:6, 11-15)--one for Christ-believers, others for unbelievers--so too the broad words "save, saved, salvation" r applied to different situations in the NT depending on their context. And to different aspects or phases of one complete salvation. This, sad to say, is one truth many so-called church 'fathers,' and many others, mistook and/or fail to recognize
May God have mercy on us all!
Judgment begins at the house of God. Believers in Christ are in altogether a separate category from unbelievers. They're God's household (1 P 4:17-18; cf Heb 12). For instance also: James 2:13-26 is written by James about believers, and their particular accountability to, and judgment before, their Lord (cf also Mt 7:21-23). Whereas altho Paul of course wrote Romans 3:20-4:25 and 10:1-17 To saints (believers); he wrote it About folks believing for the first time--transitioning from sinners to children
56 How many sins does the christian have to do before their salvation is lost, 1,100,1000? Is Christianity like Islam where we enter into paradise by our good behviour and works? If that is the case then I have not a chance, LOL!!!
This (to me)'s an excellent and nails-the-point-on-the-head comment by Ms Genna. If beginning-salvation can be lost, salvation in the eternal sense: it's not salvation. And such an evil; or at best errant, nonapostolic teaching; exactly is a bound-to-fail attempt to Judaize, Pelagicize, Islamicize, Mormonize, or religicize Christ's work or the NT faith of Christ (cf Romans 10:3; Galatians 1:8; 2:4-5; 3:1-14; Acts 15:5; 21:20b; Jn 6:29, 57)
51 There are over 80 passages in the bible that clearly show that a sanctified Christian CAN loose your salvation.
Mebbe i should ask: Salvation from what? Actually, as the Lord Jesus and His Word shows, for one born anew, it's impossible to lose his or her 2nd birth
This was also always taught by the early christian Fathers of the Church too.
To the extent this's so, or refers to eternal salvation: it's, sorry to say, their gross deviation, ignorance, or error from the apostles' teaching as recorded in the apostles' New Testament. It is also latent, or patent, as Genna points out: Judaizing, Islamicizing, and semi-Pelagianism at least
Jesus was very clear in (Matt 5:27-30) when he told people not to lust because it could send you to hell...whole Body be thrown into hell
Jesus said 'Gehenna' here. Not 'hell.' In any case, Jesus Was speaking to His disciples (Mt 5:1) in Mt 5-7, His believers. Not directly to unbelievers. And all the judgments from Judaism He used here (city-gate, Sanhedrin, Gehenna fire) applied to His judgment seat for Christians. Only (2 Cor 5:10; Rm 14:10, 12; 1 Cor 4:4-5; 3:13-15; Mt 16:27; 7:21-23; Rv 22:12; 3:5; Heb 10:27, 30). This has absolutely zero to do with eternity in the lake of fire (Rv 20:10-15; 19:20; Mt 25:41, 46; Daniel 12:2; Jn 5:29b; 3:18)
Hence Lusting is a mortal sin.
All sin's 'mortal.' For the wages of sin's death, but the gift of God's eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord--Paul, Rm 6:23 (cf also Jm 1:15). (1 Jn 5:16's referrin to a diff matter)
...made me your personal Lord and saviour...
To say Christ and God's eternal salvation or justification is conditional, or doubtful, is to effectively say it's Not salvation or justification. And thus to say that He's not Savior. If He can't save. Or if His eternal salvation depends on one's own works or righteousness (Titus 3:4-6) additionally. This's a sad and grotesque, and religious and subtle perversion of God incarnate's and His apostles' teaching. But it's natural for religion. No matter what form that religion takes. I acknowledge strongly that "saved" and "salvation" r used both in present and in future tenses and contexts in the NT. But they are also strongly and definitely used in the past absolute tense. This simply means that salvation has different aspects and applications in different contexts. It absolutely doesn't mean that one who believes into Christ might perish eternally (Jn 6:37; 10:28-30; Heb 6:1-9, 17-20; Eph 1:3-5). Just like in the natural realm: once born anew, always born anew (Jn 1:12-13; 3:14-17; Jm 1:21; 1 P 1:3, 23; etc). The eternal God is not a so-called 'Indian-giver'
certain sins(Like Lust) we can commit that can send us to hell if we don't repent before dying.
Any and all sins can send us to eternity in the lake of fire. Which is why folks need to receive justification to receive another life. In other words: personally Christ Jesus Himself. Lord, Savior
1 John 5:16-17...These mortal sins are sins unto spiritual death (like Jesus talked about in Matt 5) that can separate us from God and heaven if we do not repent before we die.
Any and all sin separates one, whether believer or unbeliever, from God and heaven, at least experientially. Which is why John the apostle wrote that if we confess our sins, He's faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. But 1 Jn 5:16-17, like Acts 5:1-11 and 1 Corinthians 11:30b, is not referring to spiritual death in the first place. It's referring to physical death, as a kind of result, or judgment because of various serious sin, to one of God's own eternal children. Has absolutely zero to do with eternal 'hell.'
