January 2017 I had some quiet moments to respond to a question posed regarding loss of salvation. What follows is my response for you to consider. There is much to this post and my heart is to answer in a way that is true to scripture, sensitive to the situation, while making sure that we are not swayed by the culture of anything goes. 1. Romans 3:23 does indeed say that we have all fallen short of the glory of God and Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. So what we see here is that we are all sinners and there are consequences to our sin. Praise the Lord for Romans 5:8 that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us! It is through our belief in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection (as the Son of God) that we are able to secure eternal life.
