Eternal Insecurity

Updated on September 21, 2018

It has long been debated within the Christian Church. Can one lose their salvation? If so, what are we to make of Jesus’ words in John 10:28? - “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish . . . .” If the words of Jesus are true, does that mean we can do anything we choose and still dwell in the heavenly palace of the King?

To understand our eternal destiny in light of the Bible we must go back to the very beginning and examine salvation. After all, it is salvation that is being questioned. Are we saved once for all, or do we have a part in keeping it? The difference between our eternal destiny of Heaven or Hell relies not on what we can do or don’t do, but have we merely received the gift God has provided for us?

So what exactly is salvation according to the Bible? What is this gift of God? No, it’s not being saved from a car accident or a drowning accident. It’s not a matter of escaping an abusive relationship. It is a matter of being saved from a literal, fiery hell and placed into the family of God.

This can only be accomplished one way. Jesus said in John 14:6, “. . . I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Notice the closing phrase, “. . . no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” There is only one entrance into Heaven. There is only one door. The Door’s name is Jesus Christ (John 10:9). Baptism may be good, but it doesn’t save. Attempting to keep the Ten Commandments is commendable, but it’s not the door. Loving your neighbor is wonderful, but it won’t get you any closer to Heaven.

Perhaps the best-known verse in the entire Bible is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” If we are to believe the words of Christ The Christian’s salvation is based solely on a gift – a gift that God gave. We neither pay for a gift nor work to earn it. We just accept it.

But what about the thought, if we accept it, can we also lose it? Scripture is clear on the matter although to many it seems to be confusing. You will need your Bible for this study as I will only mention the Scripture reference. Consider the following thoughts.

Your salvation has been purchased not only by the shed blood of Jesus on the cross but by the blood of God as well (Acts 20:28). Should not the blood of God be sufficient to not only purchase your salvation but also to keep it? Since my salvation was purchased, it belongs to the one who purchased it - Jesus Christ. It is His responsibility to keep track of His purchase, not mine, not yours.

We see in Hebrews 5:9 that Jesus Christ has become the author of eternal salvation. Eternal means without end. For someone who has truly come to Christ for salvation, they can know that it will last forever.

Philippians 1:6 assures us that He (Jesus) who began the work of salvation in us will continue until we are with Him in Heaven.

Jesus Himself tells us in John 6:39, 40 that the will of the Father is that those who have come to Jesus should have everlasting life. God’s will be done. There are no two ways about it.

We learn in Romans 8:15 that we are adopted into the family of God, and a family relationship exists. He is my Father and I am His child through adoption. Further, we are told in John 3:1-7 that we must born again. We were born once physically. Now, to have an everlasting relationship with the Father, we must be born again spiritually. I was born into this world as a Kovacic. Everything I am was given to me by my parents. I can hate them (which I don’t). I can turn my back on them (which I haven’t). I can even legally change my last name. But I’m still my father’s son. Nothing can change that. Neither can anything change my standing as a child of God.

John 6:37 is another clear verse on the issue of eternal security. We are told plainly that all who come to Christ will never be cast out. Why is it so hard for some to accept the simple teaching of the Bible?

We have the promise in Psalm 48:14 that God will be our God forever and will carry us our entire lifetime.

That beloved verse, John 3:16, is so important, not only as it discusses true salvation but as it speaks of the fact we cannot lose that salvation. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Time and time again in Scripture we are told that God has provided everlasting life, eternal life, for those that come to Him His way.

Paul mentions in Romans 8:38, 39 that “. . . neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Really, what’s left to separate us?

The Old Testament book of Psalms (Psalm 84:14) points us very clearly to the fact that God will not cast us off, nor forsake us – ever.

I John 2:25 gives us the promise of eternal life - “And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.”

The Apostle John goes on to explain in I John 5:13 that we can know that we have eternal life. The important word in this verse is, know. We can have absolute assurance that our salvation is secure. We can know.

Again, in I John 5:11, we find that God gives eternal life, and this eternal life is found in His Son, Jesus Christ. The eternal life is bound up in Jesus Christ, not us. It is not ours to lose or to keep. Peter tells us in Acts 4:12 that salvation is only found in Christ. Jesus Himself says that He is the only hope in John 14:6. Salvation is not about a religion. It is about a personal relationship with the God of the universe. Absolute truth does exist even if we choose to not believe it. Two plus two still equals four.

Moving on, the lesson we can learn from Acts 10:43 is that the Old Testament prophets taught that our sins could be forgiven. Our sins are either forgiven or they are not. I choose to believe the Bible.

I Peter 1:5 informs us that our salvation is kept by God. If I was to keep my salvation I would surely lose it. No question about it, but it is God’s keeping. What He died and resurrected for, He will keep. It simply isn’t my job.

There are many other Scriptures we could turn to, but I make this the last. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." (John 10:27-29). To think I can lose my salvation puts the emphasis back on me. What do I have to do to keep my salvation intact? The truth is there is nothing I can do. It is all about what Jesus did. Pride is the culprit here. If Jesus can save me (and He can – He did), then He certainly has the power to keep me.

Notice, first of all, in the above verses, the promise is only to His sheep. To be a sheep, you must be born again according to John 3:3. But if you are a sheep, if you truly belong to Jesus, you will never perish. You are safe in the hand of Jesus who is held by God the Father’s hand. That, my friend, is double security.

Why am I so bothered by the false doctrine that salvation can be lost? If I may be direct, one reason is because it is a false doctrine. I understand there are those who claim Scripture teaches we can lose our salvation, but honestly, the verses they claim are taken out of context. The false insecurity doctrine cheapens the precious blood of my Saviour. That is really what the problem is. Jesus died to secure eternal salvation for all who come to Him. To say I am responsible to keep it cheapens the sacrifice that was made.

Salvation is either eternal or it isn’t. If it isn’t then Jesus Himself lied over and over again (and He didn’t). Give Him all the glory for what He has done in your life. Don’t try to keep the glory for yourself.

If you have truly accepted God's only way of salvation, you can be sure you are eternally kept. If you are not sure how to go about claiming God's eternal salvation, please feel free to drop me an email. I'd love to get into more detail with you.

      Totally agree with you, but come at it slightly differently.

      'Those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his son' (Romans 8 vs 29)

      'He chose us in him, before the foundation of the world' Ephesians 1 vs 4

      If God chose me, why would he kick me out?

      I love this post as it is on fire with God’s Eternal Love through our Savior, Jesus Christ!

      I think it is difficult for some to accept because the message is so simple that it is akin to staring at something right in front of us, but still wondering where we placed it. It’s right there, yet we often fail to see it because we are looking for something more complicated in order to justify such a rich gift that has been given to us. Thanks to Jesus Christ!

      Do you think what I just wrote makes sense? It makes sense to me, but not sure if I explained it right.

      Hi Charlie.,

      I don't mind comments from anybody as long as they are respectful, on topic, and not given in an argumentative manner. You asked with sincerity, so I will answer you with sincerity. That being said, I also won't debate a topic in the comments. if you have any other questions, please feel free to send me an email, but I won't address them here. I hope, that since you say you are sincere that, that also means you are open-minded.

      "The problem is the premise you use that you are saved when you are born again. There is not one scripture that says that." - I think the problem perhaps lies in semantics, at least, in part. I would take you to John 3:3, ". . . Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." The word saved is not specifically used here, but it most assuredly tells us that if we are not born again, we cannot see the kingdom of God. You might also consider Ephesians 2:1 and I Peter 1:3 among others. So, no. The word "saved" does not appear here, but following through, the Scripture clearly teaches one must be born again, begotten, etc. That is what I mean when i refer to salvation.

      "All scriptures that talk about receiving your salvation say the those that endure to the end SHALL be saved," - this simply isn't true.There are many verses that mention save, saved, salvation, etc.with no reference to enduring. Consider Titus 3:5, Ephesians :5, 8,Romans 10:9, 13 among so many others.

      "that means at the judgment where we are judged there is NO-ONE saved before they are judged and allowed entry to His eternal kingdom at the judgment" - partially true. I won't enter the kingdom until all things are complete. At that time my salvation will be complete. For now, I'm still on a journey, but I know my final destinatiion will be the kingdom because I am saved, redeemed, born again or however you want to say it. The fact is I belong to Jesus right now. I don't have to wait for the end.

      "Remmember ALL scriptures are complementary, none can negate another". - You are so right. This is where understanding the context of a verse is needed.

      "Matt 10:22

      22 And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved." The Greek word for saved here and in your other scripture references is (σώζω) sōzō. It is also the same Greek word used in my examples. The word certainly can mean"saved" as I have referred to it, but it can also mean to deliver, to protect, to preserve. Within the context of Mattheww 10:22, it carries the latter meaning, and we can tell that from the context.

      Jesus is sending out his disciples (Matthew 10:16-23). The verse in question here deals with the disciples enduring persecution, and those that endure the persecution to the end will be delivered, preserved, etc. In its context, this is only referring to the 12 disciples, The 12 will be saved (preserved) in the end ias they faithfully endure the heavy .persecution that was to come upon them.

      In the other vreses you menton in Matthew and Mark. The same idea is true. We're dealing with persecution. What was (is) to be endured? Hatred, deception of the false prophets. If I could sum it up this way - those that have been bought by the blood of Christ and have been sealed by the Holy Spirit will be able to endure (not give in, not buckle under) the strong persecution that is to come.

      We also see in Matthew 24:22, and Mark 13:20 that it is the flesh that should be saved. The verses as you have quoted them have nothing to do with one's eternal salvation within the ocntext.

      Continuing on with your statements - "When you become a disciple of Christ according to all HIS requirements you are not saved," I sincerely hope you are not telling me you have kept all of Christ's requirements. His first requirement is that we be saved (I Timothy 2:4). Within the context of that verse, salvation is a present tense type of thing. God wants all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Scripture teaches that one must be saved in order to understand the truth of God's Word. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us understanding. The point being, if I'm not saved until the end, there would be no time to come to the knowledge of truth which is I am to be saved. And if I endure until the end and have not Christ, I'm still lost.

      "if you do not endure to the end and YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE SALVATION. - I explained above what it is to endure and how endurance has no part in salvation, so I'm not sure what it is you feel is being endured.

      "5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels." I get the part about the name being blotted out, but ai just wanted to mention that overcoming is not the same as enduring. Unfortunately, that's another topic for another time.

      "5 Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!" - Of course, they will need to depart. They were trusting in their own works rather than coming to Christ His way (which I've explained in the article). It is impossible for sinful man to work his way to Heaven. It all rests on Jesus Christ's sacrifice. The sinless for the sinner. The pure for the filthy. The rightwous for the rebellious.

      If you are truly sincere, I hope this helps. Again, if you have any other sincere questions, please feel free to email me at HP.

      Thanks for this clearly outlined study. Still, both the secure and the insecure about salvation use Bible verses effectively to prove their belief. Perhaps, as with other issues, the Holy Spirit has to convince the individual. If that is the case, then we ought to concentrate on knowing God which is a prerequisite for hearing His voice. I also like Lori's comment.

      Jack you said you read my material on this where I make it very clear the end is of your life or judgment. It is also just common sense that when you die you have come to your end.

      I have never addressed the tribulation as I do not have the truth of it yet.

      The 2nd paragraph is correct , show scripture to prove otherwise.

      what you say( or me or anyone else) without scripture in context

      backup has NO VALUE

      Hi again Bill,

      Please forgive me for this response to Charlie in your post but it needs to be addressed.

      Charlie you say in your 4th paragraph - Even those that say you will be saved require you "to endure to the end." How can those who die before Tribulation endure to the end?

      If you are referring to people enduring to the end of their lives, I can understand that but the way you have put it is suggesting at the end of Tribulation because it is written that way in scripture.

      You are in effect taking it out of context because of poor explanation.

      Your statement in your second paragraph is NOT true - and to use your own words, Remember, ALL scripture is complementary, none can negate another.

      I mean no offence Charlie.

      Jack.

      Hi Bill,

      I have to disagree with you on this subject and I feel that I must throw my 2 cents worth into the mix. Even though there are plenty of verses in scripture that back up what I will say, however, I will just use plain language for all to decide which is right.

      There is only one way you can lose your salvation after it is given and that is by rejecting the one who gave it to you - and you might want to consider that for a moment. Think about the 'falling away' both now and more so in the very near future. Isn't that rejecting Him? And that is the unpardonable sin.

      Is it possible to keep sinning after salvation? ALL SIN no matter who they are but God's patience has a limit. After salvation, all sin is wilful, even if it's unknowingly and none can escape that but as long as we confess our sins to God DAILY we can be forgiven.

      I'm sure you believe that everyone's names are in the Lamb's Book of Life from the foundation of the world - (even every unbelievers names are there until the wilful act of accepting the mark or remaining as an unbeliever until death) so how do you think it becomes erased? By sinning past the point of no more forgiveness.

      Even though we have had differences of opinions in the past, I still read your posts out of interest but I had to respond to this one.

      Bill I have written a hub on this very subject and I invite you and anyone else to look at it - it is under the heading of Sin - the wages of sin is death.

      Best regards,

      Jack.

      Bill, I know you do not like my comments but I sincerely want an ANSWER to the questions I ask here, If as you say I am wrong prove it with scriptures. Show me how you can nullify the scriptures that I give and explain because I am unable to do that. Do not just throw some scripture at me like happens too frequently, please give me scripture and explain how they negate these.

      This article is partially correct, The statement you cannot lose your salvation AFTER you receive it is true.

      The problem is the premise you use that you are saved when you are born again. There is not one scripture that says that. All scriptures that talk about receiving your salvation say the those that endure to the end SHALL be saved, that means at the judgment where we are judged there is NO-ONE saved before they are judged and allowed entry to His eternal kingdom at the judgment.

      Even those that say you will be saved require you to “endure to the end”. Remmember ALL scriptures are complementary, none can negate another.

      Matt 10:22

      22 And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.

      Matt 24:11-14

      11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

      Mark 13:13

      13 And you will be hated by all for My name's sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

      When you become a disciple of Christ according to all HIS requirements you are not saved, your name is written in the Lamb's book of Life, but you must still endure to the end to keep your name in the book. Only those whose names are in the book can be saved and enter the ertenal kingdom of God at the judgment. Both God and Christ reserve the right to blot out your name if you do not endure to the end and YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE SALVATION. See MT 7:21-23 below

      Rev 3:5

      5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

      Rev 20:12-15

      12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,* and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.* 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire

      Rev 22:19

      19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away* his part from the Book* of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

      Matt 7:21-23

      21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

      There are other things in the article that are incorrect because of this incorrect premise but this is the one I want addressed now. Thank You

      Indeed, ALL the glory! Salvation had to be a gift because nothing in us is enough to meet the need. Oh how we praise Him for His mercy! Thank you for the sweet reminder of our Lord's sufficiency. Though it is beyond our comprehension, He has given us enough knowledge about eternal security to take us through time and to the point of when we step out into eternity. I pray your work here will help many!
