Can you lose your salvation?Is there a such thing as maintaing your salvation? If so that how because salvation was granted by works, so how can it be loss due to works?

Most, if not all, of what the Bible says happens to a person when he receives Jesus Christ as Savior would be invalidated if salvation could be lost. Salvation can not be reversed. A Christian can not fail to be a new creature. Redemption can not be undone. Eternal life can not be lost and still be considered eternal. If a Christian could lose salvation, God would have to go back on His word and change your mind - two things that the Bible says that God never does.

The most frequent objections to the belief that a Christian can not lose salvation are: (1) what about those who are Christians and continually live a lifestyle immoral? - And - (2) what about those who are Christians but later reject the faith and deny Christ? The problem with these two objections is the assumption “are Christians.” (1) The Bible says that a true Christian will not live a continually immoral lifestyle (1 John 3:6). (2) The Bible declares that anyone who leaves the faith is demonstrating that he / she was never a true Christian (1 John 2:19). No, a Christian can not lose salvation. Nothing can separate a Christian from God’s love (Romans 8:38-39). Nothing can remove a Christian from God’s hand (John 10:28-29). God is willing and able to guarantee and maintain the salvation promised us. Jude 24-25: ” To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy - to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.”

I think God wants me to share this to everybody. I just can’t take it out of my mind.

I was pondering on this while I was on my way home last night. Why do I pray? Why do I only feel the presence of the Holy Spirit when I praise and worship with other people? Why can’t I do it on my own? I got a lot of questions in my mind. But this morning, as I read my daily devotions book, God answered my questions! Ang galing ni Lord! The topic on the book was “Benefits of Solitude”. I love the choice of words God used for me to understand. It says that time alone with God PURIFIES our hearts.It causes our will to bend in humility toward OBEDIENCE. Our time alone with God fuels the FIRES of our FAITH.
Thank you Lord!

———————
PINOY JOY
When we say Pinoy Pride, it is usually in the context of a Filipino or something Filipino being recognized by foreigners.
Jessica Sanchez is so great! Pinoy Pride!
Manila traffic on Bourne Legacy trailer! Pinoy Pride!
Apl. De. Ap raps in Tagalog! Pinoy Pride!
Bruno Mars/Vannessa Hudgesn/Nicole Scherzinger is half Filipino! Pinoy Pride!
I think Pride is too strong a word for what we actually mean. Do you even care about Migs Ayesa, Jasmine Trias or Efren Penaflorida these days? People hardly even remember them now yet just a few years back they were synonymous with Pinoy Pride. We don’t even attach Pinoy Pride to undoubtedly awesome and consistently famous homegrown artists like Parokya ni Edgar. Do they need to be on Oprah or CNN to qualify? Pride needs no external validation. You have Pride in something even if no one cares about it. I think we should only use the word Pride for deeper convictions. Gay Pride for example. Whether a gay man lands on the moon or kills school children, Gay Pride remains. It is not tied to achievements or disgraces. It is not ever forgotten.  From now on I will avoid using Pinoy Pride. Pinoy Joy seems more appropriate. Joy is a smaller word that does not require strong commitment. It is fleeting and it gives us license of be trivial and silly. Famous international singer is half Filipino! Pinoy Joy!  Oprah hugs Charice Pempengco! Pinoy Joy! Ewoks speak Tagalog! Pinoy Joy! Jollibee on Glee! Pinoy (chicken) Joy!
