In visiting several local churches to cast people for a christian film I will be producing very soon, on several occasions my assistants got into arguments with members of those churches on the subject of whether or not one can lose salvation. Personally I feel that REAL repentance, and the ACCEPTANCE of the grace of God, and a BELIEF in Jesus Christ ..... should secure a seat in Heaven, and allow a life with such assurance. But, this post is a request for other members to share with me Bible verses that ONCE AND FOR ALL can be used by me in dealing with future comfrontations on this matter. A local church, Maranatha, has offered to prove their point of view (that one can lose salvation) with a list of verses they will present to me by this Monday. So I need clarity on this issue, and powerful verses, to shield myself during this meeting. I notice that most churches whose name does NOT contain the word "Baptist" in it share the view of "salvation can be lost". I shared Eph 2:8,9 -- but to them it is not enough. Thanks ps: in case you're wondering why i am using them at all in my film, it is simply cause whenever I approach local baptist churches to get involved in the film, members always tell me that they will put it in prayer and get back to me -- imagine that! An evangelistic film and they have to put it in prayer and get back to me. Wow. So after 4 1/2 month of waiting I went to other non-denomination churches and they shouted "halleluya!!" and made themselves available for the project. I've already done 3 indies before, but once I got right with God, I decided to make films of evangelistic nature ONLY as of this past Nov 2007.
