Can Eternal Life Be Lost? Can You Lose Your Salvation? Jesse Morrell | Theology

IS ETERNAL LIFE CONDITIONAL? CAN YOU LOSE ETERNAL LIFE?

I had spoken to Calvinists who say, “Eternal life is eternal – that means never ending. Therefore, eternal life can nCaever be lost. If you could lose it, it isn’t eternal.”

I argue that eternal life is conditional. Adam had eternal life, as there was no death before sin, but Adam lost his eternal life by sinning.

Is the eternal life we have in Jesus conditional? Yes.

Jhn 3:36 – He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him

The present tense is used, so “ὁ πιστεύων εἰς τὸν υἱὸν ἔχει ζωὴν αἰώνιον” means “He that is believing in the son is having eternal life.”

The same is true in this verse:

1Jo 5:12 – He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

“ὁ ἔχων τὸν υἱὸν ἔχει τὴν ζωήν” is “the one having the son is having the life.”

Eternal life is not based on one moment of past faith, but conditional upon a present believing upon the son and a present having the son. You have eternal life as long as you have the son, so if you depart from the son you depart from eternal life, as Adam and Eve did.

So who has the son? According to 1 John 3:24, the one who keeps His commandments is the one who abides in the Son. Therefore, the one breaking His commandments or is living in sin does not have the son and consequently does not have eternal life.

Having the son and consequently having eternal life is conditional upon a faith that keeps His commandments.

    A very self-righteous ”ministers” site. Legalism is your problem and perverting scripture is obvious! You said ”I argue that eternal life is conditional. Adam had eternal life, as there was no death before sin, but Adam lost his eternal life by sinning.” That’s your understanding for evidence? Oh my. .I’ll move on to another matter..The law of perfection was put upon the Jews only! The self-righteous(Keepers of the Law) stoned the ”sinner” yet they sinned and paid with animals blood! Repentance was required. ….Jesus said, I have come to save the Jews..Who from? The self-righteous religious zealots who used the Law as a weapon for revenge. Oh ye Hypocrites!! Jesus came for mainly….To reconcile the Sheep,which were Jews, to the Father..The Chosen..That was the WILL of the Father, NOT ANYTHING ELSE!!! It was not sin..BUT JESUS the Messiah they had to ACCEPT as their SACRIFICE, or else! Jesus became their Lamb. Those who would come from under the Law, would accept His sacrifice!…..Before Jesus came to this planet, the Jews believed as you do. They had to worry and slave or PAY their way to heaven and manipulated others into a fear of losing their salvation, very much what you do by trying to be another Truth monger!…Even the great teacher of the Pharisee…Nicodemus humbled himself before Jesus because he did not know how to get to the kingdom….You who are without sin cast the first stone..Are you? Do you confess every sin? You keep the commandments? If you really believe in the Father and keep the law perfect..You do not need Jesus.The commandments that were GIVEN TO THE JEWS are WERE NOT for us..It was the Law of Moses! . Jesus commandment was to love thou neighbor as thou self. That was the revelation for all people!!He told the Jews who their neighbor was!! It was NOT the Jews, but the Gentiles……Better learn the simple gospel before you ”argue” anything with anyone. the Gospel of Jesus and about Jesus is not in your control! The Apostle Paul was dealing with Dianna, Zeus and many other gods and traditions, even Jews that perverted the REASON for the ONLY PATH..Jesus. You and I are not a witness..we did not see or hear. Let’s not pretend we were!! Jesus demanded far more to build His body..from those who SAW and HEARD…not from those who never saw or heard and believes…Blessed are those who have never seen or heard, and believes in Me. You nor anyone else can justify yourself with a self-righteous attitude about a simple Truth that a child could understand, if he listened. . Good day..James
