Clayton you picked a tough topic and there are good points on both sides of this topic. Being as I am not a scholar I have to use common sense to figure out a lot of this stuff.
“Your Quote: It is clear in this passage that if your in the book of life you have been born again and that you’ve been saved. Then if your name is took out of the book of Life your not saved anymore.”
Question: If I am born again and Saved. Then my name is removed from The Lambs Book. I was never saved to begin with. Doesn’t that make that passage a lie?
If our salvation is not secure, how could Jesus say about those to whom He gives eternal life, “they shall never perish”?
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 Fathers hand.
“They shall never perish.” His is not a probationary life. “No man can pluck them out of My hand.” There could not be a stronger statement.
Notice that you are in good hands: both of them. There are two hands involved: “my hand” (v.28) and “my Fathers hand” (v.29). The “eternal fist” of the Father and the Son.
Just curious to see how you would answer this.
The Marriage Supper of The Lamb will be here very soon. You are all invited. Don’t pass up your invitation.
