I was talking to my friend who I think is Baptist, though she wont admit to any denomination, she just keeps repeating that she is based on the four pillars of faith. I think she is Baptist as there are always fliers for the Baptist Church at her work.
(plus Jack Chick tracts)
Here is her four pillars…
The Holy Spirit
(by the way I agreed to her four pillars just in a different way in stating that Jesus left us a Church)
Her friend who I have seen talking with her says she is a Messianic so I am still unsure.
So there is the background and here is my question as I was discussing the faith with her, in an effort to at the very least discourage her from distributing Chick tracts at work I asked her if sins matter.
She is a firm believer in OSAS (once saved always saved) and says that we will continue to sin after we have been saved, but we are discouraged from sinning.
She essentially says that when we do go we are awarded gold crowns in heaven and if we do bad they are taken away.
I was so blown away by this I wasn’t sure on what to say, so I said I would get back to her on this.
What do I say to that? It sounds pretty far out in left field, but I don’t want to offend.
