What about once saved always saved?


Read other FAQ's on ultimate reconciliation and Christian universalism

Question:

This teaching will cause division in the church. Besides, I believe we can rest in God's love because once we're saved, we're always saved.

Answer:

No doubt in many quarters it will cause a stir. Jesus said that He had not come to bring peace, but a sword. Sometimes a wholesome division must occur so hearts already divided will be exposed-for the purpose of healing, resulting in true unity later on.

Once saved, always saved. Hmmm . . . that is, if you truly are among the "elect" few chosen for salvation, according to your doctrinal foundation. But how do you KNOW (based on Scripture) you have acknowledged Christ as Lord with ALL of your heart? The Bible tells us that only a fool trusts in his own heart-that it is desperately wicked-who but God can know it? When you're in the throes of some desperate weakness, how does Godís covenant with Abraham anchor your soul? Can you honestly love and admire God wholeheartedly while also believing He may have brought many of your loved ones and neighbors into being for the purpose of eternal torment? If "yes" is your answer, my prayer is that the Lord will give you a conscience when He does save you.
