I understand the point: everyone wants to fact-check someone else’s Salvation.
My point is simply that he may be saved. Saved people have flesh. Saved people can harden their hearts and turn to sin. Saved people can do anything that a lost person can do. Look at the example in 1 Corinthians—a young Man sexually engaged with his stepmother.
Was he saved? Yes, but he was still in the sin, and to top it off, the Church wasn’t even responding the correct way until admonished by Paul.
That’s the problem with most Christians nowadays—they are stuck in a Hebrews 5 mentality. Instead of going into sin and (when you confess and forsake it) moving back to God, they want to excuse it by saying, “Oh, I must not have really been saved! Oops. That’s why I committed X, Y, or Z.”
They want to blame the devil, when in reality they had the Holy Spirit of God right there telling them no and they ignored it—grieving and quenching the spirit—as they jogged off headfirst into sin.
I don’t know if this yahoo was saved or not—neither do you. But I wouldn’t just write it off like he wasn’t. I would take it as a tremendous warning for us to not allow the flesh that much leeway in our lives, lest we fall as well.

Once your name is in the book of life, it is there: the ONLY Scripture I can see that offers a change for that is
Revelation 22:19
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Is this yahoo LGBTQ? Maybe. Will that send him to hell? No. That sin (while disgusting) is not any different than if he had simply lied on his taxes.
James 2:10
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
It is obvious that he is now a horrible testimony to Christ, and as such we should:
1 Corinthians 5:5
To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Not turn again to the circular arguments about religions named after people. (Arminianism and Calvinism.) Stop talking about the yahoo; let him fall off the pages of history and we will see him in Heaven one day with a new name.
The least.
Matthew 5:19
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven.

Just saying.

This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
It was not the things written in THEIR books of THEIR behavior that determined whether they were staying in Heaven, it was whether they were in the Book of Life. Whether they have received a pardon.
Now, was this yahoo saved? Maybe. If he received the Pardon freely offered by Christ, yes. Is he walking away from Christianity? Yes. From Salvation? No.

I think some of you make it a tad more complicated than what God intended.
2 Peter 3:15-16 tells us that
“And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”
There are two facts about the Salvation.
1.) It is a pardon from eternal judgement FOR our sin. Not a lifting out of our flesh.
In Romans 7:15-19, Paul discusses his problems with the flesh post Salvation. Why? Because he still has flesh until he died.
Consider Revelation 20:12-15
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. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not foun

A few passing comments:
The I in IFB literally means Independent. I have seen a broad spectrum of standards (or lack) among them.
Also, the issue with identity hiding—I get that completely, and follow it myself. I have seen the NON Christian attitudes of spite and getbacks too often in my 27 years as a Christian, and have seen the same attitudes here. I am a published author and have no interest in people getting offended here and leaving a mass of negative reviews on my works based on that—but that’s what people in the flesh do, and they are alive and well here.
Just saying.

If you really think about it, there are no major corporations:shopping venues out there that are Christian in their ideology or practice. I hear people mention boycotting cell phone makers and shoe makers and every other thing you can think of, but in the end if you do that it will not have any impact on them— honestly, if you gathered every saved individual in the world together it would still not equivilate enough pressure on those corporations to change…
At some point we are going to have to understand that we are in the world, not of the world… and the world is never going to conform to us.
So honestly, what I am going to do is use my iPhone, wear my Nikes, shop as cheaply as I can, and use all the time that I have to preach the gospel.

That is good, although between Hollywood and the 9th circuit court, sometimes I sympathize with Lex Luthor’s goal of an earthquake dropping the left coast into the sea.

John UK—
Respectfully, I disagree with your assessment of my beliefs. I am not espousing an easy believism by stating that one must turn to God in repentance from dead works, and not simply turning from sin. Scripture does simply tell us to “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ...” and “Confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead...” and many others—it is belief, but not from a cognitive perspective of “that sounds good” but the Bible teaches that the Spirit draws men. It is not without the spirit drawing men that you would apparently assume I speak of.
Let me reiterate—you will not be saved by simply believing of Jesus, or thinking he’s a good idea—you will not be saved unless the Spirit draws you and you turn from your false and phony attempts to manipulate your way into Heaven and believe solely on Christ.
However, back to the post at hand—this is in direct contradiction to the “preacher drawn salvations” that are simply men misusing Scripture to elicit a phony Salvation as some person tries to repent of their sin because the preacher made them feel bad.
That was my point.

The fact is, you won’t find it anywhere in the Bible where we are told to repent of our sins for Salvation. We are supposed repent and to turn to Christ... but what from?
I would refer to Hebrews 6, since it is a rundown of the “first principles“ and lets us know the basics of faith.
“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God...” (Hebrews 6:1)
What are dead works? Anything that we are trying to do to earn Salvation ourselves… whether it be church membership, following the commandments, or any of the other works that are laid out for us in Scripture.
It doesn’t say repent from sin. Should we repent of our sins? Yes… Should we turn from our sin and avoid it completely… as best as we can.
However, is it a prerequisite for Salvation?
Absolutely not.

The idea of “repenting from your sin…“ is a bad byproduct of many IFB churches that have put more stock in the number of people down at the altar sobbing after a sermon than they have in the Word of God. It is the result of a focus on the numbers of people saved in a service… and if you don’t have many visitors because you’re crazy, then make the people in your congregation doubt their Salvation so they can come down to the altar one more time—because last time they forgot about that once in… Or they weren’t serious enough about it… Or maybe they didn’t mean it… Or… You get the idea.
Just saying

I read an interesting book by an Israeli physicist named Gerald Schroeder a few years ago—I’m not saying it is right, but he has an interesting perspective:
Using relativity, his theory involves an understanding that the closer one is to the speed of light, or the higher gravitational pull one is subjected to, has an impact on how quickly time is felt on that plane.
Simply put: Heaven sits atop the galaxy with a mass of X. (Really big number)
Earth is down here with a mass of Y. (Much smaller)
He also discusses the impact of an expanding universe reducing felt gravity over time.
The higher gravity Heaven is under makes time pass quicker there: and conversely slower here. One day in Heaven (in an expanding universe,) passes in 24 hours. That same time period (a thousand years?) or even a billion could pass here.
And remember, Adam was day 6. God was holding the stopwatch the first 6 days. Time was counted from God’s perspective.
Just a thought

God took a single chapter to describe His creational work. It is not a science book or a “How I did it step by step” guide. A chapter that teaches us God DID it, and by faith we believe.
However none of us were there. No one had a stopwatch on God, so the idea that we can set a certain time is supercilious.
We know time passes at a different pace in Heaven, (II Peter 3:8) and we know that God often uses natural (and even slower) methods to accomplish His will.
Think about it—when He parted the Red Sea, God could have used a huge disembodied hand, but instead used a strong east wind. (Exodus 14:21) So if God chooses to use an expanding universe, who are we to complain? Are we going to put God in a box and say, “This is the only way you are allowed to have done this!” God forbid. I would rather be honest, and say there is interesting proof on both sides of the argument—but the salient correlation is that it MUST involve God, or it would go no where.
Just saying.
