Once saved always saved?Once saved always saved? In evangelical circles there is the idea that once you are saved,you are always saved but is this true or biblical? Here’s the scripture they use to justifythis opinion.John 10:28-29 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shallany
man
 
pluck 
them out of my hand.29 My Father, which gave
them
me, is greater than all; and no
man
is able to
pluck 
 
them
 out of my Father’s hand.When studying the bible one should always apply the who what why when & where principle.1.Who speaking and to who is it speaking to.2.What is it pertaining to.3. Why is this being said.4. When does it apply or when did it take place.5. Where did it happen or where does it apply.6. How does it apply or how can it happen or be.In John 10:28 it’s Jesus speaking to the Jews. Lets read the full setting.John 10:24-33 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dostthou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in myFather’s name, they bear witness of me.26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any
man
  pluck them out of my hand.29 My Father, which gave
them
me, is greater than all; and no
man
is able to pluck 
them
 out of my Father’s hand.30 I and
my
Father are one.31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for  blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.So is this scripture talking about once saved always saved? I think it quite a stretch todeduct that out of that scripture. Jesus says my sheep will not be plucked out his hand because they ‘ hear my voice, I know them, and they follow me’. My teacher used to saythe only person who can pluck you out of the hand of God is you.
 
Galatians 6:7-9 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, thatshall he also reap.8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth tothe Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not.
God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Be notdeceived; saying ‘once saved, always saved’ is deceiving ones self. The scripture goes onto say if we ‘not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap,
if we faint not’.
When we come to the LORD then go about being deceptive in anything in our liveschances are we are not saved. If we love and serve money chances are we are not saved.Hebrews 10:38-39 Now the just shall live by faith: but if 
any man
 
draw back 
, my soulshall have no pleasure in him.39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe
to the saving of the soul 
.The apostle Paul says if we draw back away from God we fall into perdition. Thedictionary defines perdition as; (in Christian theology) a state of eternal punishment anddamnation into which a sinful and unpenitent person passes after death.Mark 8: 34-37 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, hesaid unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up hiscross, and follow me.35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for mysake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?A person can ‘lose their soul’. There are laws and rules to obey when we come to God.There is a growth period to a person’s spiritual walk. When we come to the LORD we areas babes, as we begin to apply Gods laws and precepts to our lives we grow.To say once saved always saved cheapens what Jesus Christ did and said. If we believedthat once we repent and ask the LORD to come into our heart and that is all there is tosalvation we are mistaken and robbing ourselves. To say ‘once saved always saved’, itgives license to ‘fall’ and justify one’s self.1 Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.Are we going to fall? Yes! But it is our duty to get back up and try again.Proverbs 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:
