I know that this subject is debatable in christian circles, and was wondering the opinions of members here on this issue. The church and school I attended believed that once salvation is attained it cannot be lost, but I have heard some interesting debates on the subject and would like to gather opinions. I've included some verses that have been used to support the debate. I would be interested to know the perspectives of christians and other's on the board. -Salvation cannot be lost: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. -John 10:28 (KJV) -Salvation can be lost: Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. -Revelation 2:10 (KJV) Of course, to me, this verse from revelations sounds out of context as far as supporting that salvation can be lost. To me it seems to be saying simply that some may suffer for their faith (for ten days apparently), but to keep your chin up because you will be rewarded for it with life after death; it doesn't really seem to speak towards loss of salvation. Unfortunatly I couldn't find any better example from googling the issue (i found other verses, but less supportive even), i'd appreciate better supporting verses if anyone knows them or even feels that there are any.
