Is “Once Saved, Always Saved” a Biblical Teaching?

Episode 664 Show Notes 

From the Show

John says that if you are saved, born again, justified, you are not going to lose that status. You see this in Romans 8:29-30 as well. Paul says that you don’t have someone who is justified who does not end up being glorified as well.

2. Can we change God’s mind through prayer? In Genesis 18 it seems to suggest that we can change God’s mind.

3. Is the idea that Christians are “once saved, always saved” biblical?
