Misconceptions and Questions About Salvation!

Updated: Dec 23, 2022


A question to ponder: Can a person lose salvation?


Sisters, well-seasoned Christians should be beyond the point of getting busy living for Christ! When we are saved or rescued from something unpleasant, we should have an overwhelming sense of relief and thanksgiving. No matter what we look like on the outside, that is how we should feel inside about our eternal security after salvation.


Ladies, this post is not for the faint of heart! When you consider who is the faint of heart, you might think of someone who does not want to tackle complex subjects. A person who is faint of heart may lack the courage to deal with challenging issues. Sometimes we have to be willing to tread out into treacherous waters! If you had to go out into the deep waters, what type of vessel would you like to be on during those times? #salvation, #understandingsalvation, #courage


 

Titus 3

New Living Translation


3 Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient. We were misled and became slaves to many lusts and pleasures. Our lives were full of evil and envy, and we hated each other. 4 But—


When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, 5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.[a] 6 He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. 7 Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.


 

Any suitable vessel should be able to move away from shallow waters safely and enter deeper waters. There will be times when we will be in uncharted territories. But we must not be afraid to plot a course that will point us in God’s direction. Soteriology is not a household word. It could require us to set a little time aside with our Bible, journal, and dictionary, along with prayer for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. #salvation, #savefromharm, #savedbygrace


Sisters in Christ, as Believers, we need to understand and share the wisdom we acquire from the Word of God as we take this faith walk. I pray that God will open our eyes to see and our ears to hear from Him as we dive deeper into Bible passages and the deeper waters of life.


When you read our featured article, “What is Soteriology?” more than likely, you will get some answers to questions centered around salvation. As we focus on eternal security or salvation and other trending topics, we will continue to delve into the Bible and unpack God’s Word to fulfill our quest to know Him better!


Please continue reading to understand better the security that is ours for eternity!






 

Question: “What is Soteriology?”


Answer: Soteriology is the study of the doctrine of salvation. Soteriology discusses how Christ’s death secures the salvation of those who believe. It helps us to understand the doctrines of redemption, justification, sanctification, propitiation, and the substitutionary atonement. Some common questions in studying Soteriology are:


Once saved always saved? Perhaps the most heart-wrenching fear some believers live with is that we can do something to lose our salvation. But the Bible speaks clearly about the eternality of our salvation and how we are preserved by the One who bought us with His blood.


Is salvation by faith alone, or by faith plus works? Am I saved just by believing in Jesus, or do I have to believe in Jesus and do certain things?


Is baptism required for salvation? What is baptismal regeneration? Baptismal regeneration is the belief that a person must be baptized in order to be saved. While baptism is an important step of obedience for a Christian, the Bible is clear that baptism is not a requirement for salvation.
