The Gospel, English, p. 21
If you fall into sin tomorrow or next month, is it possible for you to lose your gift of eternal life?
The Bible says:
We are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest stands daily ministering and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever [past, present and future] sat down at the right hand of God . . . For by one offering has He perfected forever those who are being sanctified. Hebrews 10:10-12, 14
According to the Bible, for which of your sins did Jesus pay when He died?
❏ Your past sins.
❏ Your past and present sins.
❏ All your sins forever: past, present and future.
According to this verse, how often are you sanctified (made holy) by the death of Jesus Christ?
❏ Once a week.
❏ Once a month.
❏ Once every time you confess your latest sins and ask forgiveness.
❏ Once for all.
ETERNAL SECURITY: A NECESSARY
CONCLUSION OF OUR LORD’S DEATH
One does not lose the gift of eternal life because of sin. That’s the very reason that Christ died . . . to pay for your sins! It is because He died for all sins forever – past, present and future—that He is able once and for all to declare you not guilty . . . not only of our past sins, but of all your sins: past, present and future! To refuse to believe this is to refuse to believe the very gospel itself! (Review pages 7-11).
