Many Christian groups (now including certain Baptist groups) are claiming: "O.S.A.S. is a false doctrine of the Devil." However, if you have a good old King James Bible, you will see in 2 Peter 3:9, it says: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." The key lines in that verse lay in between "his promise," and "not willing." Now, in 1 John 5:13-14, we see it says: "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." Here, we see it says "Ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life." Also, in 1 John 5:14, we see: "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:" It says here "If we ask ANYTHING according to HIS WILL, he heareth us." Going back to 2 Peter 3:9, it says "NOT WILLING that ANY should perish, but that ALL should COME to repentance." Placing these three verses in order as they're written (using the spirit of truth to RIGHTLY divide the word of truth *as commanded of us **2 Timothy 2:15, we would all see the biblical foundation of the O.S.A.S. doctrine. And, we would see the truth behind this doctrine. If you want to learn more about my viewpoint on this specific topic and these specific verses, please E-mail me.
