Question
Dear sir,

Good day! I have a question, I hope you will be kind enough to answer it. Here's the question:

can a person lose his/her salvation after being saved? If your answer is no, then kindly explain the meaning of these confusing bible verses. A short explanation for each verse is enough.If you cannot explain all, just answer what you know.Thank you.

Matthew 6:15
Matthew 19:21-35
Matthew 10:22-32
Luke 12:41-46
1 Corinthians 1:22-23
Hebrews 3:6 and 14
Revelation 2:10, 25-36, 3:1-5
2 Peter 2:20-22

I would appreciate it very much if you can help in explaining the meaning of the said bible verses given.


Respectfully Yours,

Answer
Hi Ram,
   Lots of people ask the same question so in response I wrote several articles explaining what the Bible teachers on the matter.
   
   The articles can be found at   http://bible-truth.org/apologeticspage.html#004

   http://bible-truth.org/msg105.html  Eternal Security - Romans 8:1-17,35-39
   http://bible-truth.org/assuran2.html  Can A Person Know For Sure That He is Saved
and Will Go To Heaven When He Dies? - (The Doctrine of Eternal Security)
   http://bible-truth.org/Hebrews6-4-6.html  Does Hebrews 6:4-6 Teach that a Believer can Lose their Salvation? - Hebrews 6:1-20
   
   God cannot tell us in one passage that salvation can be lost and then in another say it cannot.   One statement is right and the other is wrong.   So if you find passages that seem to disagree with each other, you task is to study the matter further and find where you are wrong in your interpretation.    It would help you to understand how to interpret the Bible by reading and carefully studying my article at http://bible-truth.org/Principles.pdf  Biblical Principles for Interpreting God's Word.
   If you have further questions.....please write.  Let me know if this helps.
