Very interesting Ed. Where in Scripture is Eteranl Life is refered to as "the inheritance"? Ed says that one can lose eternal life, is that what the Holy Scriptures really says? How do we get eternal life? John 3:15 "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life." John 5:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." Where does it say here that good works is neccessary for eternal life? Where do we get eternal life? Acts 13:8 "And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed." Again people being ordained into eternal life, here on earth. Who gives eternal life? John 10:28 "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." Here we have Jesus giving us eternal life. Is there anyone more powerful than Jesus? The verse says that "neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand". Sounds to me OSAS. Who has the power to pluck us out of His hand?
