Supposed Proof that once you have confessed Jesus you are Saved for an eternity. One Bible verse.

ROMANS 8:1 1 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. NLT 1There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus ESV 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus,[a] who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. NKJV 1 Therefore, no condemnation (A) now exists for those in (B) Christ Jesus HCSB 1Therefore there is now no (A)condemnation for those who are (B)in (C)Christ Jesus NASB ONCE YOU CONFESS THE JESUS CHRIST THAT DIED FOR OUR SINS, BURIED, RAISED ON THE THIRD DAY AND APPEARED. THERE IS NO MORE CONDEMNATION.

  1. Kingdom Seeker says:

    If one would consider Romans 8:1 alone it is quite challenging for what one arrives at seems to be against the whole thrust of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. But when it is viewed as the end of the whole of chapter 7, then a lot of grace is revealed in the preceding chapter.

  2. We also have Rom11 confirming ‘that once saved always saved’ is our enemy at work.
    This attitude will keep us from repenting of our sins and transgressions and will probably also effect our striving for that christian relationship of working in love to all.

    Rom 11:19 You will say then, Branches were broken (pruned) off so that I might be grafted in!
    Rom 11:20 That is true. But they were broken (pruned) off because of their unbelief (their lack of real faith), and you are established through faith [because you do believe]. So do not become proud and conceited, but rather stand in awe and be reverently afraid.
    Rom 11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches [because of unbelief], neither will He spare you [if you are guilty of the same offense].
    Rom 11:22 Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s gracious kindness to you–provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away).

    …provided you continue in His grace… how do you do that – by REMAINING in Christ!

    Jesus loves you

  3. This verse says something about those who are "in Christ Jesus". Jesus is John 15 told his disciples to REMAIN in me. You have to remain in Christ. Jesus talked about those NOT remaining in Him being cut off and cast into the fire.

    If was impossible to not "remain" in Christ once you are in Christ then Jesus wasted words about something that could never be. Can you believe that of the relatively few things that are recorded from the words of Jesus, some of it would be about something irrelevant that could never happen?

    What if we let John, who was known for being the "disciple that Jesus loved", who was closest to His heart – what if we let this John interpret the meaning of being "in Christ"?

     

    1Jn 3:6  Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.
    1Jn 3:7  Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.
    1Jn 3:8  He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
    1Jn 3:9  Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

     

    This is talking about a lifestyle of sin, an attitude of tolerance towards sin. If you are aiming to fall short of God' standards by neglect or planned disobedience, you can't really say you are "in Christ" no matter what has happened in the past.

  4. Because you left out the last half of the verse, which is in the KJV, the NKJV and the Majority text of the Bible.

    Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. (NKJV)

    Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (KJV)

    You cannot base important doctrines on all these modern versions which use the corrupted Alexandrian texts which were promoted by people like Westcott and Hort. FInd out who those guys were and see if you think they were really serving God.

    If you want to enter life, you must walk by the Spirit of God. We find forgiveness for the past, the question is whether we want to walk with God, or the devil.
