these views of the atonement are theories
there is no theory on the atonement it is facts . the blood atonement/ payment for our sins is not something to debate. we either accept it by faith or we dont . the Bible says with out the shedding of Blood there is no remission of sins .we go back to the garden adam and eve understood they was naked due to sin. God made clothing from animal skins the first Blood atonement. i would hope as true blue born again Christians .we could agree on the Blood atonement .the death burial and resurrection of Christ peter writes
1 Peter 1:17-19 King James Version (KJV)
17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

then odds are possibility never saved..some use the term fire insurance .which could a possibility also . here is what should be examined -------WHAT are we doing the lady in mark Gospel broke open a alabaster box of ointment . many had a fit saying what a waste of money etc..she poured it out on Christ head symbolizing his death . Christ told those complaining let her alone she has done what she could ..so what are we doing ? :shock
You bring up one of the problems.
Who are WE to say if a person is saved or not?
The problem, as I see it, is that THEY THINK they're saved (those who you say were never saved to begin with).

So, wouldn't you agree that they're living in a false state of confidence and their very salvation is at stake?

IOW,, If someone THINKS they're saved....they will not seek salvation.

If by head salvation you mean not TRUE salvation,,then I agree with you.

But yes, this is a FALSE sense of security based on what some churches are teaching these days, and I think it's a VERY DANGEROUS teaching.

I've spoken to persons that are mean and very non-Christ-like and yet they tell me THEY are saved because they're trusting in Jesus and I'M LOST because I believe in obedience and this takes away from the work of Jesus.

This boggles my mind.

NO Ezra...
both sides cannot be right.
Verses have to be reconciled to the entire N.T.
God is not verses....
God is a holy being.

Sure...and some will be lost due to their THINKING that they're saved.

Maybe God will hold the teacher responsible and not the student...

Here is one of the links I had posted...Which one do YOU agree with?
When people start calling Bible doctrines "theories" that should be a red flag. God does not present us with theories but with divine revelation.

But will a person be responsible for being taught incorrectly?
That person is following God HOW he was taught to.
What if the teaching is wrong?
i cant answer that i am not the judge if that be the case where does the Mormons j.w the rest stand .i can only say teachers/preachers stand the greater judgement . somethings we consider wrong in line of doctrines is out of our hands
