Can you lose salvation or did you never have it to begin with? Or maybe it’s option 3: You found God along the way…
Depending on your church upbringing, you have probably heard of the idea that one might lose their salvation. That God was chillin’ at his desk-throne with a big bottle of White-Out® just waiting to blot your sorry broad butt out of his nice book and swap you with some new heathen worth saving.
Or, if you grew up a little more southern baptist, maybe you thought that if you mustered up the guts to walk away, you never loved God in the first place. To quote one of the great thinkers of our time, Gym Class Heroes, “if that ain’t love then I don’t know what love is”.
What if all this talk of losing your salvation is actually a limitation? What if, instead of limiting the thoughts of an amazing Savior, we opened our mind to who that is beyond just what we have been taught? What if when we got tired of reenacting miracles of old, we found God and actually developed an intimate relationship with Him/Her. That would probably look a lot like a loss to someone who hasn’t lived it.
