Once Saved, Always Saved - Not According to This Lady Who Went to Hell

#1

Post by Stu » Mon Apr 08, 2019 8:30 am

Just watched this episode of It's Supernatural!
All those who believe in once saved, always saved I advise you to watch this as the lady he interviewed says she went to and experienced hell and once saved, always saved is a terrible lie. Watch the whole thing before commenting. There is an advert about halfway through that you can skip if you want.

What she was talking about in this instance is unforgiveness. Not forgiving people in your life who have wronged or hurt you.

For anyone that has watched Sid's work over the years - he looks the same since the 90's right up until today :lol:

It doesn't matter what she says as anecdotal evidence - because she's contradicting Scripture if she thinks there is such a thing as TEMPORARY ETERNAL life! What, does God make a mistake???!!! Does He save a person He foreknows will only later discontinue belief? And WHOSE power is one saved by? And is His power not sufficient to bring them all the way to the "Day of the Lord?"

People need to realize, it is NOT one's faith that saves them - but it is HE who they have faith in that saves them! It's GOD'S salvation, and it is He Who both initiates AND completes it!

Stu, ya gotta be careful about doing Christianity by what you see on the internet. Now, did this lady previously THINK she had already been saved? That's entirely possible. Like a lot of people, she could have fooled herself!

This is how it works:
If you TRULY believe, you will NEVER fall away from salvation ( since the HS is in you), so ONCE saved, ALWAYS saved.
But what of those that have fallen away?
Will, that means they were never TRUE believers, ie: the HS was not with them.

Oh, the THOUGHT they believed but one would have to see WHY they believed and in WHAT they believed.

How do WE do that?
WE don't, God does.

That is why we leave judgment and salvation to God.

Boy, you didn't earn your title of St. Richard for nothing!
This video is full of more holes than Swiss cheese! We hear her describe a salvation-type experience with Christ that radically changed her - but then she gets taken to hell???!!! She sees "Christians" in hell -this is unScriptural crapola! I notice she and the host are hawking books and videos like mad. We never learn why she was taken to hell. She never says she was or definitely wasn't saved beforehand - although it seems she was describing a transformation of faith in Christ. Later in the video, she talks of being eternally secure in Christ, and yet she wasn't. In fact, the entire assertion of the video is that one cannot be certain about their salvation, but then again they supposedly can be? So, WHICH is it???!!! What??? How? Through obedience? Notice as well, no relevant Scripture was really addressed, as all we hear are this lady's assertions of what SHE says is true. She says there were many Christians in hell - and just that alone, should make anyone realize this is untrue!

Notice, the entire premise of this show is the supernatural - apparently a fixation upon things people assert true but no one can know or truly understand. You must trust the testimony of people you know nothing about - especially as it doesn't line up with Scripture. Buttressed with audience reaction shots of people that appear absolutely convinced that what this lady is saying is true and is supposedly in sync with solid theological understandings, and then the host continues to assert his false beliefs to further perpetuate belief in what she's saying.

Who knows what this lady's true story is. Did she have a psychotic episode? Did she just lie? Is she mentally ill? Is she a religious nut seeking attention? Who KNOWS! Remember what happens once you begin to buy into a person's lies - then you're ripe for deception. And this show is going to mess a whole lot of people up. But anyone knowledgeable about Scripture can see there are serious things that don't add up!

Philip,

The video is truly eye opening. It amazes me that any mature and discerning Christian could give any credence to the video. It points out a huge problem within the church. A problem where a failure to know scripture, leads to a lack of discernment when unbiblical doctrine is presented as "right".

That video belongs in the "Benny Hinn" scrap heap of dangerous doctrine.

There is doctrine and there is tradition and then there is the mix of too and the problem is that many don't know the difference or that there IS a difference.
It tends to be the case of leaving ones education of what the bible says to others because, "it's just to hard to figure it out ourselves".
Then you get stuff like this.

Are you questioning whether he is a true Christian?

Who knows? That's a different question - as there are a LOT of true Christians running around who have very whacked out and unScriptural theological beliefs. Has he committed himself in faith to following the resurrected Christ of Scripture? As that's the only requirement for salvation. So, it's very possible to be saved and also have screwed up beliefs and teachings.
