How do we who have not believed in eternal security or OSAS, to interpret the verse in Ephesians that says we are sealed until the day of redemption? Thanks. I never believed in eternal security because there where so many verses that seemed to contradict it. A good buddy of mine believes in OSAS, but thinks he has rightly divided the Word of truth, and done away with the contradictions. He believes that the book of Hebrews, which is the basis for much of the Free Will Baptist doctrine, was wrote only to Jews. He says even if it was wrote to a mixed population, it was concerning the keeping of the law. He also believes the book of James, which has verses such as faith without works is dead being alone, was written to Jews, and that the works is speaking of the law. One of the things I respect most about my buddy is that he does't claim to know everything for sure. He can not really explain the 10 virgins in Matthew 25, and admits there are many more verses in the Bible that seem to support conditional salvation, compared to only a few that seem to support eternal security. As a 27 year old man, I am at a point of learning, and do not claim to have all the answers. Thanks gentlemen, I am looking forward to growing and learning.
