Once Saved Always Saved Lie
"Onced Saved Always Saved" are lead to believe that their names can never be blotted out of the Book of Life, to fit their "OSAS" doctrine, so they are taught to believe there are two books of Life.
They claim the first Book of Life has all the names of individuals that have been born upon the planet from the very beginning of its creation.
They believe second book is the Lamb's Book of Life which has the names of the Righteous that have overcome the sin of the world, to obtain Eternal Living Life, which they believe are the "Onced Saved Always Saved" individuals, when most OSASers have done nothing to overcome sin. Satan has done a good job convincing and deceiving these "Onced Saved Always Saved" individuals that they cannot keep the Ten Commandments to overcome sin.
The truth is, there is only ONE Book of Life (of the Living/Righteous)!
If an individual has not overcome the sin of the world, they are not saved for Eternal Living Life, nor are they truly Born Again.
Exodus 32:33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.The LORD said their names were never written in the Book of Life to begin with, or have/will become blotted out. The very same LORD that did Visit man in Physical Form as the Lord Jesus. The very same LORD that became the Lamb of God. The very same Lord Jesus, Lamb of God, that are one with the Lamb's Book of Life... the Book of the Righteous (Psalms 69:28).
Psalms 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Revelation 3:4-5 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Philippians 4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
These "OSAS" followers and teachers don't question, or even give a second thought to why God would need or want a book of all the Soul's born upon the planet.
Judgment is always attached to the Book of Life (also known as the Book of the Living)!
There is no judgment attached to being born for there to be a book of life for the newly born, because man is born innocent, but there is judgment attached to the inheritance of the Kingdom of God to have names written in the Book of Life.
John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.Conditions to Inherit the Kingdom of God

1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

There are many books in heaven of the deeds, works, and events that took place on this planet, but only ONE Book of Life with the names of individuals, since the foundation of the world, that have overcome the world's sin, and truly are Born Again, forevermore.
Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Many individuals that believe and follow the doctrine of "Once Saved Always Saved" have asked, if an individual can "lose their Salvation", how many sins does a person have to sin for God to forsake them? First of all, you can't lose the Salvation given. It's obtaining any further saving from sin that should be of concern. Many times forgiveness is sought for the very same sin over and over again. Is that individual really trying to overcome sin? God knows!
The LORD says it only takes ONE sin, to separate a person from God, to condemn, if that sin is not confessed and repented of with a contrite heart, nor sought to overcome.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your GOD, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Ephesians 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of GOD through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Psalms 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Luke 11:24-26 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
1 John 3:9-10 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
John 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
1 John 5:3-4 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
Jude 1:12-13 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
We are not talking about an occasional mistake in a sincere Christian's life. We are talking about those that wilfully sin, when they know full well it is wrong, yet partake of its evils anyway,... willful disobedient sinners (Hebrews 10:26, James 4:17)!
We are talking about a person that is not listening and obeying what God has voiced in scriptures.
• A person that has no regard to truly follow and adhere to the Ten Commandments of Good & Righteousness, nor have regard to truly follow that same Good and Righteousness found in Jesus Christ.
• A person who is lukewarm in the faith!
• A person who picks and chooses what they follow in Christ, and not truly walking in His footsteps to Heaven.
Jesus Christ is man's Physical Example of what it does take to become a son of God, being a Son of God Himself. It is a believer's responsibility unto their given Salvation to emulate Christ for a successful outcome. A successful outcome that Jesus did Physically display with His Resurrection!
1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.If an individual is not beholden to Good & Righteousness on earth, then neither will they be in Heaven.
Luke 19:21-22 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
Matthew 25:29-30 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Scriptures do voice there will be a falling away and departing from faith in Christ.
Upon which, the falling away, departing of faith has already begun.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.Many individuals believe or are lead to believe there will be a great revival. Those individuals either reject there being a Rapture, or just don't understand the reason for the Rapture.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Matthew 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles (people) be gathered together.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
"Once Saved Always Saved" teaches these individuals will continued to be saved, even if they fall or depart from faith.
If an individual departs from the faith, is that individual any different from unbelievers and sinners?
Wouldn't that make of God a hypocrite to reward Eternal Living Life to the unfaithful, yet condemn others of no faith to hell and its destruction?
1 Peter 4:18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?Wouldn't that make of God a hypocrite to reward Eternal Living Life to the unfaithful, yet condemn and take away eternal existence of the Angels that have Fallen and left their first estate of Good & Righteousness, heaven, and allegiance to God?
2 Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jude 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.Angels are created in greater power and might than humans, and God still judged them when they chose to leave Him, His Good & Righteousness. If God does not spare the angels that have sinned, what makes the OSASers think God won't do that to them, if they also choose to sin, and leave the faith.
2 Peter 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
Departing from the faith of Good and Righteousness, and Jesus Christ, means they chose to go back to the old man of the world and sin!
Mark 2:21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
When "Once Saved Always Saved" teachers and followers are given proof of an individual whom had fallen from faith, they dismiss it with "well, they were never saved in the first place". Yet ignore the many many scriptures that warn of falling or leaving the faith.
Proverbs 2:12-13 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
Proverbs 21:16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
Proverbs 14:14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.
Ezekiel 18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
Luke 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
Luke 15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
Hebrews 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
Acts 1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
Hebrews 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
James 5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
2 Peter 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Romans 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law (of sacrifice); ye are fallen from grace.
Luke 14:34-35 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
John 6:65-67 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
1 Timothy 1:5-6 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
1 Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
"Onced Saved Always Saved" teachers and followers will use 1 John 2:19 to solidify their claims that an individual "wasn't saved in the first place".
1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.They ignore when Jesus did explain in His Parable of the Sower, that some dureth for a while but not taken root, or the wicked one catcheth away that which was sown in his heart, or they become unfruitful.
Matthew 13:18-22 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.They also dismiss individuals being lukewarm in faith.
Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Hebrews 3:11-12 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
"Onced Saved Always Saved" teachers and followers that say someone was "never saved in the first place" are playing God. They are also calling God a liar indirectly, by implying God's Salvation is not a free gift offered to all mankind. Very dangerous ground they do walk.
Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.Salvation belongs to God. He is the author of our Salvation, not any man. Only God knows who truly has repented with a contrite heart, to have been saved from the destruction of their sins, has had their Spirit and Soul purified, cleansed, and quickened (born again) in the overcoming of sin!
Romans 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
Psalms 3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Mark 10:17-18 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
