John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. This is possibly the strongest verse in the Bible for the doctrine of eternal security. A. "The Father's will" in context does not refer to the REVEALED WILL of God but as verse 37 demonstrates it refers to the DETERMINATE WILL of God because every single one the Father gives does in fact come to Christ, whereas, the REVEALED WILL of God brings no one to Christ. B. "Of All" denies that any given by the Father will be lost "I shall lose nothing". C. "but raise IT (him - third person singular) up again at the last day" does not refer to a general resurrection because all men will be raised up again at the last day. This is the promise that each and every one that comes to Chrsit will be raised up to the resurrection of eternal life as the very next verse demands as well (v. 40) as it ends with the very same promise. However, my point is that the question "Do you believe a true born again child of God can lose their salvation" is the acid test that determines whether a person/denomination/church actually embraces the doctrine of justification by works or the doctrine of justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. It is the acid test whether they are using Biblical language but denying the Biblical meaning of that langauge or they are using Biblical langauge according to its Biblical meaning. It is the acid test whether they actually believe that Jesus Christ ALONE satisfied the complete demands of the Law in the place of the believer or he did so conditionally based upon the believer continuing in good works. It is the acid test whether or not they beleive that Jesus Christ SATIFIED FULLY THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD against sin for true born again believers or that they really beleive true believers must stand before God in judgment to ultimately be vindicated by their own works for entrance into heaven. It is the acid test because those who deny eternal security cannot believe or say what Jesus said in John 6:39 without changing the meaning of the words He used and thus proves they do not believe we are justified by grace alone thorugh faith alone in Christ alone without works no matter how much they assert they do - because they reject the Biblical meaning of those Biblical terms. All who reject the doctrine of eternal security "preach another gospel" regardless of their denial. Until you can demonstrate by this context that I am misinterpreting the words of Christ, I will not jump and run to your PROOF TEXT from a different context. Once we have established the contextual meaning here, then I would be more than happy to jump to your PROOF TEXT and demonstrate from its context you have jerked it out of context.
