Truth or Tradition ? "Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" Matthew 15:3 Once In Grace. Always In Grace .... Truth or Eternal Security Can a Christian fall from grace? Can one who has been redeemed by the blood of Christ so sin as to be eternally lost? Can one who has been delivered from the bondage of sin fall away and be lost? In his first letter to the church in Corinth. the Apostle Paul reviews Israel's deliv- erance fiom bondage in Egypt. He tells bow they were separated fi-om their enemies, the Egyptians, by the waters of the Red Sea. and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea. He recalls how God took care of their needs in the wilderness, but because many of them usted after evil things, they were over- thrown, in one day. some 23.000 (I Corinthians 10:1-12). They made their escape fi'om bond- age. and were clearly on their way to their promised land, but because of sin in their lives, they never made it. They lost it all Then Paul makes his application: Now all these things happened unto them for ensamplcs: and they arc written fo,- our admoni- .ion. Wherefore let him that thinkelh he standcth take heed lest he fall (1 Corinthians 10:11-12). Can one who has been delivered from the bondage of sin. and scpa- -ated From his enemies (sins by the waters olbapusm, and be on his way I. heaven (the promised hind,, so sin as to lose his eternal reward? Can the child of God fall away and be lost? The Apostle Peter wrote: For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome; the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than. after they have known it. to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is hap- pened unto them according to the true proverb. The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wall owing in the mire (2 Peter 2:20-22). Can one escape the pollutions of the world, and later become en- tangled again? How could the latter end be worse if they are going to heaven anyway? Once In Grace.
