In the middle of a discussion on in a different thread discussing something different entirely, Freeatlast made this comment: Oh, and the context was negative. So let's discuss this. I was taught as a child that the yearly sacrifice made by the High Priest "rolled" the sins of the Jewish people over until the next year, and that sacrifice rolled the combined sins over and so on until Christ died and His blood made the final sacrifice. Therefore if an individual failed to make his yearly sacrifice (or contribute to it?) or failed to believe that the sacrifice was sufficient, then his salvation was in question. I do not remember being given any scriptural support for this position (my parent often insisted we take their word for such stuff). What are the flaws of this view? Where did this view get its start? What scriptural support do we have that points toward the idea that OT saints were as secure in their salvation as we are? What scriptural support is there that shows their salvation was dependent on obedience to the Law with sacrifice being the culmination of that obedience? Are these questions sufficient to begin the discussion or should I come up with a few more?
