Are you saved?

Have you at one time or another asked Jesus Christ to come into your life?

Once you "pray the prayer", what then? Is it a "done deal"?

There are many teachers in Christian Churches today that teach once you pray that prayer, you have nothing to worry about. "Once saved, always saved."

Jude in his letter wrote in verse 4 about certain men who had crept into the Church unawares who turned the Grace of our God into Lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Just as it was in Jude's day, so it is today. Certain teachers today change the Grace of God into a license for sin.

Such teachers point out that Paul himself said twice in his letter to the Corinthians "All things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient". Hence, they surmise that "if 'All things are lawful to me,' I can commit fornication, adultery, idolatry, drunkenness, murder, homosexuality, thefts or any other such thing, and I will enter the Kingdom of God no matter what I do. As long as I 'prayed the prayer', I can do whatever I want, but it might not be profitable to me in the long run. I will be sure to lose some rewards."

What these false teachers fail to point out is that just prior to making that statement that "all things are lawful to me, but all things are not expedient", Paul himself told the Corinthians not to be deceived; and then he reminded them that neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. After he lists these people, he reminds the Corinthians that even some of themselves once did those things, but now they are washed, they are sanctified, they are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. By saying "and such were some of you", Paul is obviously stating that they are no longer that way.

In context, Paul is speaking to the Corinthians concerning passing righteous judgment upon those who are in the church. In chapter 5, Paul is saying that those who are Christians should not company with those who profess to be Christians and yet who are still willfully engaged in sin (see 1 Cor 5:9-13).

1Co 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person

In 1 Cor 6, Paul continues his instruction from chapter 5. He mentions the fact that Christians shouldn't be taking one another to court and having heathens judge them. The Body of Christ should judge affairs concerning disputes between Christians. In verse one, he says:

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?

The key to understanding this Chapter and the things that are contained in it is that the word translated as "unjust" in verse 1 is the same word that is translated "unrighteous" in verse 9.

Basically Paul is rebuking the Corinthians for going to court to have their matters settled before unrighteous judges (vs. 1), when those same unrighteous judges are not capable of inheriting the Kingdom of God (vs. 9,10).

One day the saints will stand in judgment of those judges, so why in the world should they subject themselves to their unrighteous decrees?

1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

Now follows the reason why we should not take our disputes before the unrighteous Judges:

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

It is very important to note that Paul reminds the Corinthians that they should not be deceived (verse 9) concerning the following sin issues.

1Co 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

The word "were" implies that while they once were unrighteous, and did those unrighteous things, now that they are Christians, they no longer do those things. So when Paul mentions in the following verse that all things are lawful for him, but not all things are expedient, he is writing in reference to taking others to court, and not in reference to sin. I can take my brother to court, but it would be more expedient if I just turned the other cheek (see verse 7) and forgave my brother. It is better not to be brought under the authority of any legal decisions, and particularly by those decisions that are determined by people who are unsaved.

1Co 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

In verse 13, Paul says "Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them", implying that the affairs of this world will be ultimately judged by God. But he continues to remind the Corinthians that we are not our own but we have been bought with a price. This verse contains a play on words. Just as the meats are for the belly and the belly for meats (food was made for the stomach, and the stomach was designed to digest the food) so the body is for the Lord's Use, and the Lord is intended to work through the body. That being the case, Paul warns the Corinthians once more against fornication, so they won't misunderstand what he just said in verse 12, and thus brings them back to the issue at hand in chapter 5 in the matter concerning the man who was committing fornication with his father's wife. If we were designed to be the Temple of the Holy Ghost, then we are not to live as if our lives are ours to do what ever we want with them.

1Co 6:13 …Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

The next place we see this phrase used is in 1 Cor 10:23:

1Co 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

This is written in context with eating things sacrificed to idols. While we know that idols are nothing in this world, we can eat whatever is set before us, as long as it won't cause a stumbling block in the minds of those who do not believe.

In neither of these instances where Paul used this phrase was he condoning sin, or even encouraging sin. But there are some who have crept in the Church who would use these verses to justify or excuse a person's sin, those who would turn the Grace of God into a license for immorality.

I ask you once more, dear reader.

Are you saved?

Have you "prayed the prayer"?

Have you bought into the lie that it doesn't matter what you do now, because you are Unconditionally Eternally Secure? DON'T MISUNDERSTAND. THE PROBLEM THAT I AM ADDRESSING IS NOT THE ETERNAL SECURITY OF THE BELIEVER...If we remain in Christ, we can be secure in our relationship with Him. If we fall, we need to repent, and get back up. It is that word that so many false teachers today want to add to that phrase; the word "UNCONDITIONAL" that I am addressing here. Basically that doctrine is no different than UNIVERSALISM (the doctrine that there is no Hell, that every person will be saved). The only difference is that the UES teacher says you have to "pray the prayer" to Jesus first! According to the UES teacher, once you pray the prayer, it doesn't matter what you do...YOU ARE SAVED! This is false doctrine, and is leading millions of people who embrace it down a Broad Path that ultimately eads to destruction.

The Doctrine of the Unconditional Eternal Security of the believer causes murderers, drunkards, homosexuals, liars, thiieves, adulterers and fornicators to feel good about their sin. It adds numbers of tithe paying attendants to the church. But it does nothing for your soul.

It makes Christians lazy and apathetic about their faith.

It makes Christians lovers of pleasures more than lovers of self.

It causes Christians to believe that service and obedience to God are merely options. There is no more reverence for God in the heart of the professing Christian who says "I love God" while he or she wallows in their sin.

The fact of the matter is that the Lord is able to establish you and to keep you from evil (2 Th 3:3).

He is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of His Glory (Jude 24).

But we are given a responsibility as well.

Jud 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

What follows is a list of 101 questions to ask the person who has embraced the doctrine of Unconditional Eternal Security. On the other end of the spectrum, there are those poor souls that believe every time they turn around, they have lost their salvation. They are always running to the altar to get Born Again again and again.

The truth of the matter is that before I came to the Lord Jesus Christ, I was utterly lost in my sin, absolutely powerless to bring my mind or my body in subjection to the Will of God. But once I became Born of the Spirit of God, I became empowered to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:4-6).

Sin no longer has dominion over me like it once did (Rom 6:14, 18).

But the realization of that empowerment is a process of continual growth and revelation of what it is to be a child of God (Rom 1:17, 2 Cor 3:18).

Jesus tells us that we are to abide (or remain) in Him (Jn 15:1-6).

Even after I have been Born Again, I can choose to reject God (2 Cor 13:5; 2 Tim 2:12).

But He is always faithful and just to forgive me of my sins, and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness, as long as I come to him in repentance and confession of my sin (1 Jn 1:9), just as the Prodigal Son did (Lk 15:18-21).

Friend, please don't let false teachers deceive you.

The Christian walk is a walk of victory over sin (1 John 5:4,5).

It is a walk where we are to strive against sin (Heb 12:4).

It is a walk where we bring our minds and bodies into obedience to the Will of God (1 Cor 9:27).

Those who teach the doctrine of Unconditional Eternal Security deny the Power of Jesus Christ to redeem you from your sin (Tit 1:16).

They speak smooth words to make you feel good about continuing to wallow in your sin, making you two fold more the child of hell than they themselves are (2 Pet 2:18,19).

Most of the time, those who embrace the doctrine of Unconditional Eternal Security have unrepentant hearts toward some sin or sins they love to hold on to more than they love God. The Bible says that in the Last Days there will be those who are lovers of pleasures more than they are lovers of God ( 2 Tim 3:4).

They either are knowingly or unknowingly the servants of the devil, being used of him to render you incapable of being a good soldier in the army of the Lord, and furthering the Kingdom of God, "because," they say, "everyone knows that we are just sinners saved by grace. God doesn't expect you to be a good soldier. All that stuff about working for Jesus is just legalism" (2 Tim 2:3-5).

We cannot be saved by any amount of works we may do. Yet if we have truly given our hearts to Jesus Christ, we will bear fruit "fit for repentance". True Christians may not be sinless, but they do sin less than they used to, and they are always striving to live a life that will bring Glory to the God they love and serve.

Years ago, I was given a sheet of paper with 58 questions for the Unconditional Eternal Securitist. The author of that paper was Daniel D. Corner. A few days ago I was going through my old files and I found that paper. It was torn and tattered, so I sat down to copy it because I thought it was worth saving. Then I ended up adding to it. Then I thought it would be good to post on my web site. Going through these questions that follow will help you to honestly evaluate your walk as a Christian.
