offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His 87 appearing. (2 Timothy 4:6-8 NKJV) Once a person is obedient to the Gospel, Heard (Rom. 10:17), Believed (Mark 16:16), Confessed (Acts 8:37), Repented of the sins they have committed, and is Baptized for the remission of
those sins (Acts 2:38), they are a Christian and saved from the fire of hell. But, we read that we must remain faithful unto death (Rev. 2:10.) Why? Do we have to be concerned about sinning after we are saved? These verses say we do! Col. 1:21-23; 2 Tim. 2:16- 18; Heb. 3:12-19; 2 Pet. 2:1;
Heb.5:8, 9; Jam.2:24, 26; John 15:1-6; 1 John 2:24; Rom. 14:13, 15; Gal. 5:4; Heb. 6:4:8; Heb. 10:26- 31; Jam. 5:19, 20; 1 Pet. 5:8; 2 Pet. 2:20- 22; Rev. 3:5 & 20:15.
Passages wrongly applied to say that once you are saved you are always saved. John 10:27, 28; John 14:19; Romans 5:20, 21; Romans 6:23; Rom. 8:1; Rom. 8:38, 39; 1 Cor.10:13; Ephesians 1:13, 14; 2 Tim 1:12; Heb. 6:19; Heb. 12:6;
Heb. 13:5; 1 Pet. 1:4, 5; 1 John 2:19; 1 John 3:9; Psalm 97:10. The Bible teaches a Christian can lose their salvation and be condemned to eternal damnation, if on the day of judgment if they have any un-repented, unconfessed, unforgiven sins which they have committed after they are saved.
