The warnings of the New Testament: Common Objections

Since I was one of those who was taught the view that salvation is something received once and for all the moment somebody believes and regardless of what happens after that, I know very well some of the arguments people use to support it. Here are some that I have heard:

I am a child of God and this cannot be changed.

No one can snatch me out of Jesus’ hand (John 10:27-28)

Misusing Jude 1:24-25: God will present me blameless anyway, regardless of what I do.

Misusing Philippians 1:6: He who started the good work in me will finish it anyway

Misusing 1 Corinthians 3:15: I can do whatever I want and still be saved! On the day of judgment my (sinful) works may be burned but I will still make it!

Speaking in tongues as proof that of salvation
