— Here are some Bible verses that DISPROVE the teaching of ‘once saved, always saved...

— The Bible warns against serious sins that will keep a person from entering God’s Kingdom. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21)

** If salvation could NOT be lost, such warnings would be meaningless.

Hebrews 10:26 states: “If we practice sin willfully after having received the accurate knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left.”— 2 Pet 2:20-22.

Jesus emphasized the importance of MAINTAINING FAITH by giving an illustration in which he likened himself to a vine and his followers to branches on that vine.

— ..Some would at one time demonstrate faith in him by their fruits, or actions, yet would later fail to do so and be “thrown out like a [fruitless] branch,” losing their salvation. (John 15:1-6)

— The apostle Paul used a similar illustration, saying that Christians who do not maintain their faith “will be lopped off.”—Romans 11:17-22.

— Christians are commanded to “keep on the watch.” (Matthew 24:42; 25:13)

— Those who fall asleep spiritually, ...whether by practicing “works belonging to darkness” ...or by not fully performing the works that Jesus commanded, ...lose their salvation.—Rom 13:11-13; Rev 3:1-3

Many scriptures show that those who have been saved must still endure faithfully to the end.... (Heb 10:36; 12:2, 3; Rev 2:10)

** Matthew 4:13 “But the one who has endured to the end will be saved.”

— Why would the Bible stress FAITHFUL ENDURANCE... if those who did NOT endure would be saved anyway?

** Hebrews 10:36 “For you need endurance, so that AFTER you have done the will of God, you may receive the fulfillment of the promise.”

— First-century Christians expressed joy when they learned that fellow believers were ENDURING in their faith. 1 Thess 1:2, 3; 3 John 3, 4

** Rev 3:10 “Because you kept the word about my ENDURANCE, I will also keep you from the hour of test, which is to come upon the entire inhabited earth, to put to the test those dwelling on the earth.”


— Earlier in his life, Paul recognized that he could still miss out on salvation if he gave in to fleshly desires. — PAUL WROTE: ...
“I pummel my body and lead it as a slave, so that after I have preached to others, I myself should not become DISAPPROVED somehow.” — (1 Cor 9:27; Phil 3:12-14)

— Only when his death was imminent did the apostle Paul feel that his salvation was assured. (2 Timothy 4:6-8)

** Matthew 10:22 “And you will be hated by all people on account of my name, but the one who has ENDURED TO THE END will be saved.”

** 1 Peter 4:18 “And if the righteous man is being saved with difficulty, what will happen to the ungodly man and the sinner?”

** Hebrews 3:14 For we actually become partakers of the Christ ONLY if we hold firmly down to the end the confidence we had at the beginning.
