Past, Present, and Future Salvation - 2 Corinthians 1:10

Christopher Rankin If departing from the faith is not possible, why does these words appear in 1 Timothy 4:1? “Some shall DEPART from the faith.” ? How can anyone “depart” (apostatize) from something the aren’t already in? Please answer the question.
Some Will Depart from the Faith

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1 Timothy 4:1-2

“Teaching people ‘once saved, always saved’ has given us this God-less immoral country. People ignore the Bible and act like the world and brazenly call themselves Christians.” Lundy …OSAS (once saved always saved) / eternal security is the message of Satan himself and designed to accomplish exactly what Lundy observes above (Genesis 2:17; 3:4). False teachers are specifically identified as those who teach this doctrine of devils which confirms men in their sin instead of calling them out of the darkness into the light of Christ – “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 17 They (the false leaders) say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace (while living in sin); and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil (no divine judgment) shall come upon you.” Jeremiah 23:16-17

MAKE NO MISTAKE: The heretical system of calvinism and un-conditional eternal security are exactly what the Holy Ghost was warning us about in Jude 3-4!

WHO’S THE REAL FOOL? Salvation is initial, present, and future (2 Corinthians 1:10, etc.). Your participation is absolutely required or all is lost (Luke 8:13). Otherwise there’s no other reason Jesus and His apostles would have taught you must “endure to the end” to be saved into eternal glory and warned us over and over to “be ye therefore ready also,” etc (Matthew 24:10-13; Luke 12:35-40; 21:34-36, etc.). Those who believe OSAS call the Son of God a fool. They are the fools. When you get honest with the whole counsel of Holy Scripture you will see this truth. Matt 10:22; 24:10-13; Col. 1:22-23; Heb. 3:6, 12-14; 10:26-39; 2 Peter 2:20-21; Revelation 2:26, etc.

TODAY, read John 15:1-16. This truth given us by the Son of God, will clear up many false notions. Abide means remain and those who don’t remain in Christ (on HIS stated terms) are going irrevocably to the fires of eternal damnation (v1-6).

Unto WHOOOO? “And being made perfect, he (Jesus) became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;” (Hebrews 5:9) The un-conditional eternal security beguilers focus only on “eternal salvation” while purposely ignoring the condition – “unto all them THAT OBEY HIM.”
