1. More on OSAS-once saved always saved

The subject of "once saved always saved" being a license to sin has been extensively treated here in previous postings. The bible tells us about something being taught in the churches which changes the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust:

Jude 1:4 For some people have slipped in among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus the Messiah.

Have you ever stopped to think about what was said there? If you disagree with me then please, you tell me what is the bible talking about here? Some people have slipped in unnoticed in order to turn the grace of our God into carnal lust and nobody stops to think "hmmm, I wonder WHO these people are?" Not only do we need to identify WHO they are but we need to know WHAT they are teaching that creates this uncontrollable lust through a perversion of God's grace.

I've already explained in detail that what is being referred here is OSAS-once saved always saved. If you don't think so then you need to come up with a better explanation that takes into account everything written in Jude 1:4 and make it "fit" convincingly. Satan knows humans. He knows that if they offered all the sin they can handle while on earth and then the promise of heaven afterward with maybe a few less rewards, they will bite every time. You need to understand that our God has ZERO TOLERANCE for sin of any kind...ZERO. Do you think our Lord would teach us anything that would make us WANT to sin more? There's a reason for all the warnings in the bible and our God does not sabotage his own people by introducing temptations and lusts into the very people he is trying to save. Remember this part of the Lord's prayer: "lead us not into temptation......."

The satanic doctrine of OSAS is quite brilliant from the devil's point of view. Basically what he does is say "yes! Go fight the good fight! Stand up for the Lord! Be a good christian! Don't sin!" He says these things while he pushes you out the door into the spiritual battle, fighting the heavily armored hordes of hell without any armor on of your own. That's why your OSAS preacher will SAY things that sound godly and sound right but you seem to notice that you are losing your battles with sin over and over and over again. Did you ever stop to wonder why? Gutting the bible of the fear of the Lord and all the numerous warnings that you CAN be cutoff from the Lord (John 15) because of sin is like sending you into battle with nothing but your underwear on. Satan knows it and he laughs at you while you struggle with your sin wondering why you "go to church" listening to your hired hand "pastors" year upon year and never see any victory. The serpent is SUBTLE... but not stupid....He is deadly effective and we are not unaware of his schemes. Think about it...

2. Why the "pastors" who teach OSAS are in big trouble.

I was out for a run the other day and the Lord floored me with this one. I knew the OSAS teachers had big troubles because the teach a "different gospel" which means they are CURSED:

Galations 1:6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel7which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!

As if that were not enough, the Lord dropped this one into my mind regarding these teachers:

Matt 18:7 "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!

Did you read that carefully? WOE to the man who is a conduit for introducing things that cause people to sin. I cannot think of anything more potent as a means of causing people to sin than the perverted 'gospel' of OSAS that perverts the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust causing people sins to pile up into the heavens...WOE unto those people through whom the false gospel of OSAS comes. The subtlelty of the OSAS poison is that the preachers tell you not to sin, but through the stripping away of the fear of God they put you on a greased slide into the pits of hell. Very clever indeed.

So we have two powerful condemnations of the OSAS teacher. One is a curse on them for teaching a false gospel, the other is a warning of woe to them for being a means for the introduction of sin into people's lives.

Whatever it is you believe about your salvation, it better include a HEALTHY FEAR of the Lord. Go do a word search of the bible for that phrase "fear of the Lord" and see how many hits you get. Read them all carefully. Anything, and I mean ANYTHING that diminishes your healthy respect and FEAR of the Lord should be treated as false doctrine and an enemy to your soul. Today's "church" has fully embraced the "carrots" of reward in the bible and buried any notion of the "stick." The bible is absolutely OVERFLOWING with warnings to US..the believers.

We are given promises that include both the glory and joys of heaven-the carrot, as well as the horrors and agonies of hell-the stick. HOW can we preach one without the other and expect to stand before the Lord on judgement day?

I look at the writing here on this blog sometimes and think "hey Lord, all the writing here is pretty heavy on the "stick" isn't it?" And his answer? "Don't worry the rest of the world has the preaching of "carrots" taken care of..."

grace and peace
