Eternal Security teaches that once a person becomes saved he/she cannot become unsaved. In other words, a person who is converted cannot become condemned again. If that is true; can you explain this…
1Timothy 3:1-6 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
…the apostle Paul says that a person who wants to be a Bishop must not be a new convert, because he may get prideful, and fall under the same condemnation as the devil. According to eternal security a convert young or old cannot become condemned again, but here the apostle Paul “CLEARLY” states that a new convert who is made Bishop can be lifted up with pride, and fall into the same condemnation as the devil. So that being the case, how can eternal security be true?
Here is how it can be true…
**2Timothy 4:2-4 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. **
The eternal security doctrine is a lie that started in the garden in Eden. Eve told the serpent: “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.” and the deceiver told the woman: “Ye shall not surely die.” The lie has not changed, today people are told they will sin, but they won’t die.
Those who teach false doctrine are ministers of the devil…
**2Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. **
False teachers appear as though they are ministers of God, but the message they preach is not from God, and likewise they are not ministers of God.
In the name of Jesus,
