    Some of the best NT verses threatening loss of salvation

    This is like asking when does a false teacher become a false teacher? I'd say a false teacher is born a false teacher. The devil's offspring come up with the sons of the kingdom at the close of the age.

    Salvation: A study of lost and found

    The RSV translation doesn't have 'moreover' either. See Mt. 18:15 RSV. Matthew 18:15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. There is nothing in the RSV to suggest Mt. 18:15-22 is a continuation...

    Matthew 18:12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? Jesus is asking a rhetorical question, to the effect, if a man had a hundred sheep and one sheep was...

    John 21:15-17 Revised Standard Version (RSV) Jesus and Peter 15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to...

    Get yourself an RSV. JLB It's easy to see it's a different teaching. 15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every...

    [ If they are born again, I would say yes. He can also be a shepherd of the sheep. Depends on his calling.

    Salvation: A study of lost and found

    The parable is explained in two places. Luke 15 says there's more joy in heaven over the sinner who repents and believes in Jesus than over ninety-nine do gooders who are righteous according to the law. Matthew 18 says it's not the will of the Father that any believer in Jesus should perish.

    Salvation: A study of lost and found

    I know. A man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost. We were all like that one sheep with no shepherd to guide us until we were found by the Shepherd. Of course we didn't know it at the time. We didn't know until God gave us the knowledge of his Son. Things like that are revealed to us...

    Proverbs 12:26 A righteous man turns away from evil, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. When the sheep is found, it is no longer lost. He was lost, not dead. He could have died, but he was rescued. The parable says he looks for his sheep until he finds it. So the sheep is found. When...

    Salvation: A study of lost and found

    His sheep are in this world, but the calling of the sheep is from heaven. It's spiritual ie. we hear his voice. Jesus said, John 17:6 “I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou gavest me out of the world; thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word. Jesus said...
