Re: A few questions for the once saved always saved crowd
I would point out that there are at least two types of OSAS believers: Lordship and non-Lordship.
I don't know any informed Christian of either group that would say it doesn't matter if I walk in the flesh in the narrowest sense. Lordship believers (who are generally Calvinists) would say what Nobunaga is saying, i.e. they weren't saved if that's what they do. Non-Lordship would say they are saved still, but that it does matter.
It seems to me that those that do not accept OSAS worry about a false idea, that a person who is born again, but holds to OSAS will purposely choose to not walk in holiness. This is so contrary to Scripture. Those who have placed their trust in Jesus, have the Holy Spirit indwell them. Once that happens, and they become partakers of the divine nature, they will have new desires. They will desire to walk with the Jesus. I personally believe that OSAS allows me to more easily walk in holiness because it takes away my worry that I might fall away or might not be doing enough. Now that I'm not worried about my performance, performance is easier.
