In the thread Defending Eternal Security standingfirminChrist was asked about his opinion on Matthew 25:14-30 the parable where the the Master goes on a trip and gives his servants talents according to their ability. Here is his reply: This is an interesting take on the situation but it doesn't seem to pan out when one considers the context of the passage. The servant is obviously a child of God because he has been given a talent and he chose to do nothing with it. And thus was punished. Another interesting thing to note in this passage is the fact that the servant is cast into outerdarkness. The Greek doesn't say 'hades', 'gehanna', or damnation. My question to those who believe you can lose your salvation is it possible there are level's to heaven? Those who serve Christ faithfully will live in a better "place" or "part" of heaven? Now it does mention "weeping and gnashing of teeth so I understand that wouldn't really be Heaven. Just a question I was curious about and didn't want to sidetrack the other thread.
