Home Forums Re: Salvation: Conditional or Unconditional



I appreciate you taking the time from your busy schedule to respond to our dialogue that was started; unfortunately, you have completely ignored my last posting altogether. I believe that it is now my turn to posit my position and question to you. I must assume that you overlooked my last posting addressed to you since you have totally failed to acknowledge it. If you feel that your point has not been adequately addressed, then feel free to pick back up on it only after you address my question first, and I will be more than happy to dialogue further on the passage.

The whole reason as to why I have proposed a form of structure on this thread is so that posters would keep from evading the questions and points made by their opponents, and allowing room for a basis of order. Instead of debating on one particular passage with no end in sight, it is important to allow for other points of consideration, and various passages in the bible to be presented so that the entire message of the Gospel can be seen. So with this in mind, I will re-post my last one addressed to you, hoping that you can respectfully follow the format previously presented.

“I’d like to point you to a passage that does demonstrate the clear possibility of a Christian walking away from the truth of the gospel to the peril of death. As a matter of fact, there are many clear passages that demonstrate final apostasy. The bible reveals that the conditions of repentance, faith and obedience are necessary to salvation, and the failure to continue in this vein can result in the forfeiture of eternal life. Please exegete the following passage for me.”

Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:19-20)
