Growing Disciples
24 September 2018

My family and I have been through a lot. We’ve been carried in the arms of our saviour and that must be said loud and clear. I know I am saved. But will I get to heaven one day? Well, Paul wasn’t sure of that. Paul is the loudest voice against the “Once saved, always saved” doctrine. No, it is only at the end of his life that he writes “I have finished the race.” Throughout his letters he encourages us to remain in Christ, to pursue Godliness, to press on to the goal. As I write this, I know I’m saved. I’m living for Jesus. But I’ll know on my deathbed if I’m still saved, as that’s the end of my earthly walk. The question will always be, have I walked it for Him? Will He know me? Will I scrape my way into heaven by the skin of my teeth, or get a “Well done, good and faithful servant?”.

If Paul wouldn’t claim eternal assurance until his last days, what right do I have? Did it change the way he lived? Perhaps. Perhaps it made him live more focused on Jesus than his peers. Study his walk with the Lord.

The Once saved, Always saved doctrine is sometimes called “Eternal security”. While it sounds good, they’re actually not the same thing. “Saved” and “secure” are different. I’m saved from sin, saved from death, saved from the authority of Satan as I put my trust in Christ. I am secured for eternity once I stand before Christ and he pronounces his judgment. In His hands are the power of life and death. In his ways and commandments are the keys to getting the best answer from Him on judgement day. My security is in knowing Him and Him knowing me, in a relationship where I submit to His authority and obey his commandments. In that wonderful place, I am secure.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

Revelation 2:29


Salvation according to the Bible:

Reference is below the verse, some are linked but some lost the links.

Best to read the whole Bible if you want the whole truth 🙂 Our notes are in italics.

Scriptures “for” eternal salvation (35 scriptures)

  1. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. – note how Hebrews 3:17-19 describes belief and unbelief John 3:18
  2. Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. note how Hebrews 3:17-19 describes belief and unbelief John 5:24
  3. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” –Just because it’s God’s will doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. He gives us free choice John 6:40
  4. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. – If you come to Him He won’t cast you out but if you walk away from Him? John 6:37
  5. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. – But can we not choose to walk out of His hand? Note the parable of the lost sheep. John 10:28
  6. And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, – Yes, He justifies the ungodly, but not so that we can continue to live ungodly lives. Romans 4:5
  7. For if it is the adherents of the law who are to be the heirs, faith is null and the promise is void. – Agreed, we can’t be saved by keeping the law perfectly. Only through Christ’s sacrifice can we be saved. But we can lose our salvation if we continue to break His law/commandments “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3:36 and “If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.” John 15:10  Romans 4:14
  8. That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, – Agreed, you can only be saved by faith in Christ, not by keeping the law perfectly  Romans 4:16
  9. But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. – Note that we do still serve, it’s just in the new way of the Spirit (“the law of Christ”, as per Galatians 6:2) and not in the way of the old law. Romans 7:6
  10. Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. – But we must no longer walk in the flesh: “For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Romans 8:13  Romans 7:25
  11. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:1 The second half is often left out of quoting this verse.
  12. as it is written, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” – note how Hebrews 3:17-19 describes belief and unbelief Romans 9:33
  13. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. – Yes, you can’t achieve righteousness through keeping the law. But by continuing to break Christ’s commandments you can lose your righteousness. Romans 10:4
  14. But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise, grace would no longer be grace. – Again, you can’t earn your salvation by works of the law. But now that we have received grace Christ says we must keep His commandments Romans 11:6
  15. so that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. – If you abide in Him ‘If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.’ John 15:6 1 Corinthians 1:7-8
  16. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. – These are good works that we build up onto “the foundation” (our salvation). I don’t think this is referring to good or bad works of the law.  1 Corinthians 3:14-15
  17. and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee? – A seal is simply a sign of the owner. It can be broken. And the Spirit is a guarantee to us for as long as it is in us. 2 Corinthians 1:22
  18. that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. – Are these past trespasses or future ones? 2 Corinthians 5:19
  19. yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified. – Agreed, we can’t be saved by keeping the whole law perfectly  Galatians 2:16
  20. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose. – Speaking of achieving salvation through keeping the law Galatians 2:21
  21. Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? – Speaking of trying to achieve salvation through keeping the law Galatians 3:3
  22. Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:11
  23. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. Galatians 3:29
  24. You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. Galatians 5:4
  25. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. – Not under the law of Moses but under the law of Christ ‘If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love.’ John 15:10 and ‘Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.’ John 3:36 Galatians 5:18
  26. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. – Yes, we can’t achieve salvation by being perfect (“works”). Christ gave us our salvation. Now we must keep it. ‘Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.’ John 3:36 Ephesians 2:8-9
  27. by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. – Is this not the past record of sins, since this sentence is in the past tense? Colossians 2:14
  28. For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. – Just because God destines someone for something doesn’t mean that person will choose to accept that destiny. We have free will 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10
  29. he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, – Yes we can’t save ourselves by our works. But by continuing to walk in sin we can walk away from His salvation ‘For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries’ Hebrew 10:26-27 Titus 3:5
  30. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. – Able to, yes, if we continue to aide in Him Hebrews 7:25
  31. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” – Is this all future sins also? Ones that we haven’t repented of? Hebrews 8:12
  32. he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. – Yes, he did the job once. He doesn’t need to repeat His work but we need to keep repenting of our sin Hebrews 9:12
  33. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. – Note “being sanctified”. This is a continual verb, not a past event. Hebrews 10:14
  34. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – Is this past sin or continuing sin? 1 John 1:8-9
  35. We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him. – The second part of the sentence only refers to “everyone who has been born of God” and who is that? It’s the person who “does not keep on sinning”. So only the people who do not keep on sinning are protected by God so that the evil one does not touch him. 1 John 5:18

Scriptures against eternal salvation


  1. ““For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”  Matthew 6:14-15
  2. “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” Matthew 10:22
  3. “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:12-13
  4. And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterwards the other virgins came also, saying ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. – This is the parable of the 10 virgins, waiting for their bridegroom so that they can go into the wedding supper. This is Christ’s bride -people who are saved. Matthew 25:10-13
  5. 41″Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 46And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” – These people call Him Lord. Clearly they thought they were following Him  Matthew 25:41-46
  6. 30And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ – This is the parable of the servants and the talents. Christ’s servants are His, they are the saved and not the unsaved. Matthew 25:30
  7. 28″Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, 29but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” Mark 3:28
  8. Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” – This was spoken to “the crowds” who came to be baptized, so these people might not have been saved yet. But He still says to those coming for baptism (claiming to the world to be saved) that they must bear fruit in keeping with repentance or they’ll be chopped down and through into the fire. Luke 3:8-9
  9. “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and not do what I tell you? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: … But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.” – This was spoken to His disciples (v20) and He’s talking to people who call Him Lord. These people are saved. Luke 6:46-49
  10. For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. – This was spoken to the crowds (v23), not necessarily saved people  Luke 9:26
  11. No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. – This was spoken to the crowds (Luke 12v54), so isn’t actually a supporting scripture  Luke 13:3
  12. “Salt is good, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” – This follows on directly from Jesus’ speech to the crowds (v25) about counting the cost of being a disciple. I would therefore say it’s talking to those who want to be disciples.  Luke 14:34-35
  13. “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man – He is speaking to His disciple (Luke 20v45 and Luke 21v7) These people are saved and He’s warning them to not be distracted by the cares of this life and that they would have strength to stand before Christ when He returns  Luke 21:34
  14. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. – This is John the baptist speaking directly to his own disciples. But it could be understood that to “obey the Son” means only obeying His commandment to accept Him as the Christ and accept His salvation, not His other commandments  John 3:36
  15. So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – Here he’s talking to Jews who believed him.  John 8:31-32
  16. Truly, truly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death.” – Here he’s talking to Jews who believed him.  John 8:51
  17. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. – He’s talking about “branches that are in Me” -These are saved people  John 15:2
  18. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. – He’s talking about “branches that are in Me” -These are saved people  John 15:6
  19. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. – He’s talking to the 12 disciples (John 14:22)  John 15:10
  20. But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.  Romans 2:5
  21. but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek,  Romans 2:8-9
  22. For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.  Romans 2:12-13
  23. By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Romans 6:2
  24. Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?  Romans 6:16
  25. But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed,  Romans 6:17
  26. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. Romans 6:22
  27. For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. Romans 7:5
  28. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Romans 8:13
  29. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. Romans 11:21
  30. Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. Romans 11:22
  31. But you yourselves wrong and defraud—even your own brothers! Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:8-10
  32. For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God. 1 Corinthians 7:19
  33. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:27
  34. We must not put Christ to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. 1 Corinthians 10:9-10
  35. “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” I Corinthians 10:12
  36. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. 2 Corinthians 5:10
  37. Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 11:27
  38. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20
  39. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! 2 Corinthians 13:5
  40. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21
  41. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Ephesians 5:5
  42. “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;” Philippians 2:12
  43.  “Today, if you will hear His voice, 8Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness,
  44. 9Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years.
  45. 10Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’
  46. 11So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ”
  47. 12″Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;”…14For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.  Hebrews 3:7-11,12,14
  48. Since therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience, Hebrews 4:6
  49. “And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13
  50. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, Hebrews 5:9
  51. For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. Hebrews 6:4-6
  52. “And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:11-12
  53. so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.  Hebrews 9:28
  54. For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? Hebrews 10:26-29
  55. but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.  Hebrews 10:38-39
  56. “looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;”  Hebrews 12:15
  57. “What does  it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?… Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead… You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?”  James 2:14,17,19-20
  58. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. James 2:24
  59. Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.  James 5:19
  60. “But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment.”  James 5:12
  61. “not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.”  I Timothy 3:6
  62. If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. II Timothy 2:12
  63. “They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.”  Titus 1:16
  64. For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And “If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” 1 Peter 4:17-18
  65. “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction… By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment… then  the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.  They  are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you,… These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.” II Peter 2:1,3-4,9,12-13,17
  66. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. 2 Peter 2:21
  67. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7
  68. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, 1 John 2:4
  69. “And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” I John 2:17
  70. Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. 1 John 3:4-6
  71. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. 1 John 3:9-10
  72. “Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” I John 3:15
  73. “Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” I John 3:24
  74. If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life—to those who commit sins that do not lead to death.
