QUESTION: Hello Mr. Barns,

I read the excellent answers to Ram's question this morning about the possibility of losing one's salvation.  Since you were not one of the experts being asked and since you are a new expert here, I thought this would be an excellent opportunity for you to share what you have learned about this subject through your studies.     
__________________________________________________

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.

ANSWER: Mr Holland stop writing me. Stop talking about me. Stop hurling accusations against me. Stop harassing me. You cannot be led a second time to God. I believe that the antichrist has entered our churches and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away.

"Some people once had God's light. They experienced the heavenly gift and shared in the Holy Spirit. They experienced the goodness of God's word and the powers of the world to come. Yet, they have deserted [Christ]. They are crucifying the Son of God again and publicly disgracing him. Therefore, they cannot be led a second time to God."- Hebrews 6:4-6 GWT

QUESTION: Mr. Barns,

I am totally confused by your response to my questions.  If you have something against Mr. Holland, why not address him directly (and in private, for that matter), and not use another person's questions for that purpose?  

I had assumed the reason you are here is to answer questions about the Baptist faith.  Reading the new Q's & A's on the forum this morning, I can only conclude you have an ulterior motive for being here.  And looking back at all your answers, it didn't take you long to reveal what that motive is.  

Why not just state upfront that you are not a Baptist? Your answers (or rejections & non-answers) seem to indicate you are not.  Correct me if I am wrong.  

Lou

Expertise

I can answer questions about the Bible of all translations and the various theologies of it's passages. Experience in how the Baptist Religion was founded in it's infancy and how it has splintered into many sects of different theology. If you enjoy the deeper things of God. I would love the opportunity to share the meanings of the true scripture as the meanings are hidden from many. Teaching an eternal burning hell is to reject "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3. The Bible Literally teaches us that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13. This is truly a marvel and the gospel of Jesus Christ that hell gives up the dead to be Judged. Please note the last half of the scripture "they were judged every man according to their works." We would be in error to say works don't matter, if we are literally judged by them.

Experience

Intensive study of Biblical Christianity and where it got it's start. I've learned that being a KJV only can lead a person to being narrow minded and somewhat short sided to Christ's full message of Salvation. Sometimes comparing Bible translations actually leads to a far deeper understanding of God's Word. Punishment in hell after death is double jeopardy and unjust.

Organizations
Once Saved Always Saved is not a Biblical doctrine. Paul told Christians who had already accepted Christ to: “Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”— Philippians 2:12.

Education/Credentials
Baptist Sunday School and intense study of different translations. Studying several different translations gave me more understanding than reading KJV Only. Without grace who of us could get saved and stand before the throne of God? I believe that the antichrist has entered the church and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away. "Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth?"- Galatians 4:16
