When it comes to the question of losing one’s salvation, there is a divided opinion within Christianity. Some churches believe that a person can never lose their salvation once they have truly accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior. This view is called “once saved, always saved” and it emphasizes the security we have in Christ and his promise of eternal life for believers.
On the other hand, other churches state that a person’s salvation is dependent upon remaining faithful in following Jesus and living according to his teachings. If one turns away from Christ to commit sinful acts, they may forfeit their salvation. Ultimately, each Christian should prayerfully consider what faith they choose to follow when it comes to this important topic.
