"Re: Michael Colunga, "Are Christians who commit suicide still saved?""
Once saved always saved debates will go on
apparently until Jesus comes and we all see the answer. There are many
sites on the Internet that focus on this debate if that is what someone
wants. John usually will allow it here up to a point but I have been
noticing that when it happens here it seems to begin by the "pro"-osas
side. (I don't know if Michael Colunga was responding to someone or not
with his opinion about "Are Christians who commit suicide still
I am not one who just likes to debate for if I was I'd probably spend
more time at those sort of sites, but at the same time I don't like to
let statements go unchallenged that I believe are serious and
incorrect. Each of us must make up our own minds and once they have
been made up it's not likely that many will switch sides in the debate.
Therefore it is for the sake of those who are still searching this out
that I even get into it at all. To remain silent would be to concede to
the other side it seems.
I don't even want to get into a scripture quoting thing here now either
but I will instead mention something that I heard someone else say that
I think is noteworthy. I heard someone say that pretty much everyone
who believes in osas was taught it by teachers and pastors who learned
it at seminaries or from other teachers. He said that reading and
studying the Bible alone would never lead one to that belief system. So
rather than get into a debate this time I would challenge each reader
to let scripture and the Holy Spirit be your guide rather than men and
remember if any lack wisdom let him ask of God. The Holy Spirit will
lead us into all truth.
