The doctrine of OSAS differs between descriptions from person to person that’s why I don’t believe in it there is no consistency in Protestantism.
Two main versions.
#1 Once saved always saved… that’s it.:shrug:
#2 Once saved always saved but if you sin after you were saved you weren’t really saved after all.
Here’s the thing the Bible in Corinthians 1 6:9 list off certain behaviors of people that will not be saved.
1 Corinthians 6:8-10Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
8 But you do wrong and defraud, and that to your brethren.
9 Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
10 Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.
Yet many people who purport to be saved commit these exact sins.
The other thing is if someone tells you they have not sinned and you are not saved Its likely they are blind to their own faults like the pharisees.
5And this is the declaration which we have heard from him, and declare unto you: That God is light, and in him there is no darkness. 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he also is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all iniquity. 10If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Then there are people who follow criteria #1 and they may tell you that you are not saved because you are Catholic.
This what you have to look at and even point out.
OSAS means one is saved by ALL past, present and future sins.
The first requirement is that one must profess Jesus Christ as their lord and savior and the only means for salvation which Catholics do.
So if being Catholic is a sin and Catholics believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and criteria one is met the rest would be null and void because all past present and future sins are forgiven.
A person is saved through their belief and forgiven for being Catholic in the past, present and future.
See their own condemnation makes no sense pretty much a serial killer child rapist could be saved simply believing the deity of Jesus.
But we know as Catholics it doesn’t work that way it’s not works as in helping little old ladies across the street or donating money to charities it’s the works of a Christian believe in Jesus by living through him and following his Fathers commandments and Christ teachings and the Holy Spirit that indwells inside us.
The whole story of the Old Testament is that Israel commits sin time and time again and God forgives his people places them back in his protection but only after they REPENT.
John the Baptist cried out in the desert for people to repent and be baptized.
Jesus forgave sins and commissioned his twelve apostles to do the same through his authority.
19Now when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them: Peace be to you. 20And when he had said this, he shewed them his hands and his side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord. 21He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent me, I also send you. 22When he had said this, he breathed on them; and he said to them: Receive ye the Holy Ghost. 23Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.
Matthew 28: 16-20
16And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And seeing them they adored: but some doubted. 18And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. 19Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.
In the book of Revelations Jesus cries out for us to repent.
All of us have moments of doubt about our salvation even apostles like Paul was not sure if he was saved.
That’s why we must repent everyday for our sins and go to confession frequently and do our best to love God with all our hearts and all our soul and all our mind and to follow every commandment to the best of our ability and most of all to love Christ.
If other people judge you don’t worry about it because the only ones judgment you should worry about is God’s.
