    Once you are saved in Christ are you always saved?

    Is it possible to lose your salvation?

    Absolutely no. If you do not produce the fruit of righteousness while living on the earth then you will not be saved. Jesus Christ is the one to judge every person by their fruit and what kind of fruit that comes up from the roots of the tree. Good works can not come up from bad roots and evil works can not come up from good roots of a tree which is the source of everything that that tree produces from itself from the roots up deep underneath the ground. So you need to daily check yourself if you are producing good fruit in your life on the earth.

    After my study, prayer, and reading, my personal thought is this...........

    YOU have the option to throw away and discard everything that you have worked for.

    While Jesus, will not 'take' it away..............YOU can throw it away.  Personal responsibility exists.

    According to the Bible, once you believe that Jesus died for your sins, you will always be forgiven and "whosoever shall beieve in Him shall not parish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

    Doctrinal issue that churches have been split over for too long. For every church that says yes there is one who says no. I know God doesn't walk away from us and He gives us everything we need to walk with Him. The parable of the lost sheep illustrates the length the Father will go to save just one. If He works that hard to keep me, I'm not going to worry about getting lost. He won't loose you, but, you can refuse to come.

    If you TRULY accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior then you can't go wrong. Not all christians are hardcore, bible-thumping, religion fanatics that go to church every Sunday so lot of times, some christians do backslide. It's easy to deceive the pastor and the church (in other words, man), but God knows your heart and knows if your serious about accepting him in your life when you go up to that pulpit or to the baptism tub. And if you are truly a man of God (no matter how flawed) you're going to have some limitations and morals.

    Jesus said 'Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God' ( John 3:16 ) Which means:

      when a man is born of the spirit (Jn 3:5),  he is a new creature, old things are passed away;behold, all things are become NEW, and God hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ.

    When this new birth takes place, the spirit baptizes us into the body of Christ (I Cor 12 :13) (The Church).

    Moreover the Holy Spirit hath SEALED us unto the DAY of REDEMPTION.(Eph 4:30).As such NO MAN IS LOST! Praise the Lord!
    There is no turning back for those who are sealed by the Holy Spirit, and the choice is purely ours to yield ourselves to the Holy Spirit to bring about this transformation. (Romans 6:1-23).

    A person’s final salvation is not determined at the moment that he begins to put faith in Jesus, there is more to come. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, but I do know that salvation depends on the continuity of faith not a single, one-time act of faith.

    Accepting” Jesus is a continuing way of life, and its continuity depends on the saved person enduring until the end.  He that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved.
    (Matthew 24:13) 

    Endure until the end of what?  It could be that you continue to believe until the belief you profess ends.  My life could end at any time, and unexpectedly, do I still believe? 

    What if I stopped believing, what if I quit?  I could quit, because I wanted the blessing of being saved, but I did not want the responsibility that goes with the belief. If I want the blessings but not the responsibility, then I have not endured until the end.

    Phil. 1:6 "He who began a good work in you will complete it"

    1 John 2:19 "They went out from us because they were not of us. If they were of us, then they would not have gone out from us."

    Somewhere in John 10, "The Son will not lose any of those that the Father has given Him."

    If you reject Christ, whether you said you believed or not, you were never truly saved in the first place. Salvation is not earned by works, therefore cannot be taken away by works.
