Hi:Some denominations say "when your saved...your saved for life and automatically heaven bound!"Other denominations say "you must be saved..but if you walk away from God and stay away...off to hell you go! In other words, you can lose your salvation!I tend to believe the latter one! I believe that in my backslidden state that I HAD BEEN in til recently, I had lost my salvation! Wow! that's scary! According to the book that I read about Hell, there are people there including preachers that were once saved, then for some reason they walked back into the world and away from God. I know that the Lord was urging me to read it again as a reminder to "clean up my life", repent and come back to Him. Thank you Jesus for the cross and the shed blood TO WASH AWAY OUR SINS. I've been "JUSTIFIED" Just if I'd never sinned!WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE HAVE! Any reaction to this subject?Carly :-o

HalleLuYah!I believe once your saved, there is no worse feeling than knowing you are living outside the Will of God and what He has for you in this earthly existence.We cannot sin, oblivious, like we once did in our darkened states, once we have come to live in Christ and He in us.Carly on the www.fireonthealtar.com site, there's a wonderful sermon that Dr. Michael Brown preached during the Brownsville Revival, called "Holy Desperation", that has encouraged me more than once, when I felt myself getting cold. (it may be here at sermon index I dont know)(you go to "message bearer's" in the left column at fire on the altar to find Dr. Brown)Dr. Brown speaks of becoming desperate for the things of God...a wonderful sermon.We're saved to serve, oh I believe that with all my heart.I'm praying right now, that God speaks to us all with clarity on where we are to serve Him, whether that be abroad, at home, on our knees, in love, or all of the above.May Jesus love you lavishly tonight.Neil
