- 1 Corinthians 3:15 Does Not Prove The Doctrine Of Once Saved Always Saved:
+While this Scripture passage describes in detail what takes place at the judgment seat of Christ, and even provides us with great assurance of salvation, this text still does not grant validity to this teaching. 1 Corinthians 3:15 places the condition of remaining on Christ as the sole foundation of our overall association with the gospel (v. 10-11). If people do not abide in the Lord Jesus Christ, then how could they still have Him? How could they rightly claim to be saved? This Bible verse offers no justification for the doctrine of eternal security, any more than it serves as biblical evidence for the Roman Catholic doctrine of purgatory.
- 1 Corinthians 5:5 Offers No Scriptural Support For The Doctrine Of Eternal Security:
"[5:5] Deliver this man to Satan: once the sinner is expelled from the church, the sphere of Jesus’ lordship and victory over sin, he will be in the region outside over which Satan is still master. For the destruction of his flesh: the purpose of the penalty is medicinal: through affliction, sin’s grip over him may be destroyed and the path to repentance and reunion laid open. With Paul’s instructions for an excommunication ceremony here, contrast his recommendations for the reconciliation of a sinner in 2 Cor 2:5–11."
