There arere several scriptures usually found in a listed fashion without context that have a superficial appearance of contradiction to the OSAS position. However, when these scriptures are placed in their rightful context the superficial appearance of contradiction vanishes. 1. Ezek 18 - a. The Location is "in the land of Israel" not in heaven and civil court action in Israel- v. 2 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. b. The Subject - "a proverb" used in Israel - vv. 2-3 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. c. Jewish Court Penalties - PHYSICAL not spiritual penalites The civil courts in the land of Israel were punishing children for their father's transgressions. This involved the PHYSICAL death penalty for some sins of their fathers while lesser penalities for other sins. 14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father’s sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like, 15 That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour’s wife, 16 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment, 17 That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live. 18 As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity. 19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The Jewish court system was punishing the righteous son for his father's crimes (v. 19). CONCLUSION: This text has nothing to do with eternal judgement before God but only civil judgement before men in the Jewish courts of Israel who were practicing unjust condemnations toward the children of a wicked father so that this "unequal" practice became known in a "proverb" among them. This has nothing to do with spiritual salvation and then loss of salvation but about civil jurisprudence within the nation of Israel.
