The Lord be with you
This coming Sunday, the Third Sunday in Lent, March 7, 2010, we will continue our series “Puzzlers and Questions about the Bible” in our adult Bible class at Lamb of God Lutheran (LCMS). As noted in earlier posts on this blog, this series is simply examining questions that have been submitted. This coming week's question is a good one:
- In light of the verse that states that it is impossible to restore to repentance one who has been a Christian and turned his back, could Judas have been saved & did Peter really lose his faith? Add to this David.
There are really two questions here:
- 1) Can someone loose their salvation?
2) Can someone who has lost their salvation be restored?
- Lord, Your mercy will not leave me;
Ever will Your truth abide.
Then in You I will confide.
Since Your Word cannot deceive me,
My salvation is to me
Safe and sure eternally. (LSB 559)
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
