This the second part of proving the doctrine of Conditional Security, from the Bible. If you want to read Part 1, then GO HERE. Last time, I gave plenty of Scripture showing how someone can TRULY know that they are a Christian. God wants us to have assurance of salvation. He doesn’t want us to be insecure about our salvation. I also posted a video where I talk about a number of passages from the Bible, that emphatically prove the doctrine of Conditional Security.
This time, I want to go through some examples in Scripture where people actually departed from the faith. They either stopped following Jesus while He was still alive or they departed from the faith after Jesus rose from the grave. Either way, these are examples of people “losing their salvation” and therefore are Biblical proof that the doctrine of Conditional Security is true.
The Disciples from John 6
John 6:66: “From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more.”
Many DISCIPLES turned back from Him. Keep in mind that in Scripture, “disciple” is synonymous with believer or follower of Christ. One can’t be a “disciple” without being a follower and vice versa. Yet, after a difficult saying from Jesus, these “disciples” ” went back and walked with Him no more.” So, these “disciples” used to “walk with” Jesus and they decided to “go back” or “backslide.” People can twist it any way they like, but the Scripture says what it says.
