OSAS Once Saved Always Saved

There is this idea in Churches nowadays that once you are saved, you will always be saved.  This concept is referred to as OSAS or “Once Saved Always Saved”.

This idea is also often expressed in the following ways:

“I have accepted Jesus in my heart, so now I will go to heaven.”

“I am saved by grace.  God forgives me all my sins (including wilful sins).”

“God forgives anything.  I am justified by faith and grace.”

“God’s love is no strings attached.”

Unfortunately, these concepts are not scriptural.  God wants his people to be a holy people:

1 Peter 1:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

God will forgive but only if we repent from our wicked ways:

2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV)

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

God promises to help us, supernaturally, to become and stay a holy people.

Hebrews 10:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

God's promise to mankind has always been conditional
Proof that God is not all loving
God will help you meet his standards
How to bind and command spiritual forces:
Show me the scriptures!
This has not happened to me, am I going to hell?
How humble must you be?
Humble men of God
