Is There Sin More Powerful Than The Blood of Christ?

Does Sin Have More Power Than The Blood of Christ?

In his book refuting once saved always saved, Dan Corner cites an objection that the eternal security adherents raise about sin which goes like this:

If you can produce a sin that can cause a Christian to lose his salvation, then you have found a sin that has more power than the blood of Jesus Christ, because 1 Jn. 1:7 says the blood of his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Dan Corner Responds:

Sin spiritually defiles a person, even one who has been washed clean at salvation. This is evident from what Paul told Timothy:

Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure (1 Tim. 5:22).

Also, Jesus told the Christians at Sardis:

You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy (Rev. 3:4).

1 Jn. 1:7 has a condition with it that will clarify the proper meaning of this verse! The whole verse reads:

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

The condition of walking in the light as he is in the light will make void the attached promise unless that condition is met.

Finally, Jesus himself taught sin would always be an issue in stopping people from entering the kingdom (Mk. 9:42-48). By saying this, he wasn’t downplaying the power of his own blood which would buy our redemption, but was clearly teaching that sin has destructive, ruinous, defiling, spiritual powers that can send people to the fire that never goes out. Nowhere in that passage does Jesus limit the soul-damning power of sin only to those who were never saved. This is much different from the Once Saved Always Saved teachers who try to limit sin’s destructive powers in the life of any person who ever had a moment of true faith in Christ.

Forgive To Be Forgiven | Forgiven And Forgiving | Dan Corner

Dan Corner Examines the Seriousness of Unforgiveness

To limit the seriousness of unforgiveness to only being a hindrance to your prayers, as some teachers do, is to dangerously understate the consequences of it. This is usually done from Mk. 11:25. That verse says:

And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.

Clearly, we see here as in the aforementioned verses, we block our own forgiveness by being unforgiving! Also, we should check our own hearts for any unforgiveness as often as we pray. In other words, this should be a constant area of self-examination. What a victory through unforgiveness the devil must be getting in the lives of most, especially when one embraces Once Saved Always Saved, which Dan Corner contends against in his writings and on his websites.

We also learn in Mk. 11:25 what unforgiveness is. Jesus said it was holding something against another.

To obey Jesus and forgive those who sin against us doesn’t mean they are getting away with their offense! Vengeance is God’s, he will repay. So forgiving our offenders isn’t helping them. Instead, it’s helping yourself spiritually, based on Jesus’ teaching in Mt. 18:21-35.

Related to this subject of forgiving others is the following passage from James which deals with showing mercy:

For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment (2:13).

On the other hand, Dan Corner says, to nurse a grudge against another is to be like the wicked and adulterous Herodias who unjustly did such against John the Baptist:

For Herod himself had given orders to have John arrested, and he had him bound and put in prison. He did this because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, whom he had married. For John had been saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” So Herodias nursed a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she was not able to (Mk. 6:17-19).

Finally, forgiving others is as important as getting your own sins forgiven, for without the former, the latter won’t occur, according to the Lord Jesus.

Charles Stanley Vs Charles Spurgeon | Do The Disobedient Remain Saved?

Which Eternal Security Teacher is wrong about the following question?

Is it possible for a Christian to altogether forsake the path of obedience yet remain saved?

Charles Stanley said:

You can’t sin and live like the devil down here and get by with it, even as a believer. The Bible says you will lose your reward, but you’ll be saved so as by fire. You won’t lose your salvation, but there’s a whole lot to lose, brother, by sinful living.

Charles Spurgeon said:

We detest the doctrine that a man who has once believed in Jesus will be saved even if he altogether forsook the path of obedience. We deny that such a turning aside is possible to the true believer, and therefore the idea imputed to us is clearly an invention of the adversary.

Infinite (Finished) Work of Christ and OSAS Once Saved Always Saved

Is the following a valid argument for eternal security (osas)?

If I’m wrong as a once saved always saved (OSAS) advocate, I want to be wrong because I over-emphasize the infinite work of Christ on the cross.

Dan Corner, author of The Believer’s Conditional Security (which refutes osas), responds:

This sounds like a good reason to accept OSAS or stay with this position. However, the infinite work of Christ doesn’t relate to this controversy, as previously mentioned. Advocates of a conditional security also affirm the infinite work of Christ. Scriptural truth on any specific issue is the deciding factor, which shows OSAS is a doctrinal myth that holds its adherents in a false security with obvious spiritual disadvantages.

Also, for five-point Calvinists to claim that the infinite work of Christ is the reason they believe in OSAS, is to unwittingly contradict their own limited atonement doctrine. That point in Calvinism teaches that Jesus shed his blood only for the elect, but not for the non-elect. Hence, if Jesus didn’t shed his precious blood for everyone, then it wasn’t infinite. In contrast to this point of Calvinism, the Apostle John wrote:

And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world (1 Jn. 2:2, NKJV).

Moreover, since Jesus died for the ungodly (Rom. 5:6), and all people are ungodly before salvation, then Jesus died for everyone!

Clearly then, Jesus died for all people and not just the elect, as Calvinism declares. Question: Who, then, really believes in the infinite work of Christ?

Please view The Finished (Infinite) Work of Christ video by Dan Corner and don’t be deceived by osas.

Dan Corner Examines: Is King Saul’s Death a Bible Contradiction?

Is Saul’s Death A Bible Contradiction?

Various false religions want us to wrongly think the Bible is not accurate and contains contradictions. To do this, they sometimes mention King Saul’s death. Needlessly, some people are confused by the following three Bible passages. First consider 1 Sam 31:3-5 where the actual historical account of what happened the day of Saul’s death is recorded:

The fighting grew fierce around Saul, and when the archers overtook him, they wounded him critically. Saul said to his armor-bearer, “Draw your sword and run me through, or these uncircumcised fellows will come and run me through and abuse me.” But his armor-bearer was terrified and would not do it; so Saul took his own sword and fell on it. When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died with him. (1 Sam 31:3-5)

This next passage is where King David tells us the young Amalekite thought his lie would be good news to David and he would get a reward for his report.

“I happened to be on Mount Gilboa,” the young man said, “and there was Saul, leaning on his spear, with the chariots and riders almost upon him. When he turned around and saw me, he called out to me, and I said, ‘What can I do?’ He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ ‘An Amalekite,’ I answered. Then he said to me, ‘Stand over me and kill me! I am in the throes of death, but I’m still alive.’ So I stood over him and killed him, because I knew that after he had fallen he could not survive. And I took the crown that was on his head and the band on his arm and have brought them here to my lord.” (2 Sam 1:6-10)

Dan Corner Explains The Key To Understanding This Passage

At first glance, this seems to be a contradiction. However, the key to understanding Saul’s death is the following passage.

When a man told me, “Saul is dead,” and thought he was bringing good news, I seized him and put him to death in Ziklag. That was the reward I gave him for his news! (2 Sam 4:10)

Again, the KEY to understanding this alleged contradiction is 2 Sam. 4:10. That is where David tells us the young Amalekite thought his lie would be good news to David and he would get a reward for his report. The actual historical account is 1 Sam. 31:3-5 and that becomes apparent with 2 Sam. 4:10. There is no contradiction in those passages.

Never Really Saved to Begin With | Can you Lose Salvation | License to Sin | Dan Corner

Can you lose your salvation, or does falling into immorality prove you were never really saved to begin with?

The statement, He was never really saved to begin with is used sometimes by the once saved always saved advocates to describe a professing Christian who falls into adultery, greed, drunkenness, pornography, homosexuality, etc. or false doctrinal beliefs to protect their doctrine from the charge of teaching a license to sin. Many Scriptures prove the possibility of loss of salvation, when a righteous person turns to evil. Please view this beautiful new video. Dan Corner of Evangelical Outreach is Biblical and passionate for truth, as you will hear.

The HOUSE of God | Temple of God | By Dan Corner

In Old Testament times, the “house of God” was a building in one specific location (Psa 84:10). However, after Jesus died on the cross, the physical body of the Christian is the temple (or house) of God. Again, the house of God is not a church building now. Christians are the house of God, but only if they hold on to their courage and the hope of which they boast (Heb 3:6). See also 1 Cor 3:16,17 in the NKJV.

Please also know that the man made, so-called tabernacle inside the Catholic church where the left over wafers (or Eucharist) are kept is not the house of God:

However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men. (Acts 7:48)

Eternity | Heaven or Hell | Judgment Day

The word eternity signifies an expanse of time that many people struggle to wrap their heads around. Other words like forever and infinity are equated with eternity to help us grasp exactly what the word means in the most literal sense. The concept of the word eternity is even harder for people to truly understand or be able to speak about with authority. This is not a new concept, as the likes of Aristotle have argued for it. To an average person, the idea of eternity is just time without end. Dan Corner discusses the word and concept of eternity as well as its full weight and meaning on his website.

Is Mary The Refuge Of Sinners?

The Catholic church continues to present an image of Mary, the mother of Jesus, that is so distorted it is actually Biblically unrecognizable and dangerous! To just single out one of their distortions from the long list of glorified titles and exalted roles the Catholic Mary has been given, the one stating she is the Refuge of Sinners has led to many misguided prayers to her for salvation itself. Imagine that! Sincere people, who want salvation and recognize their own spiritual needs, are going to a non-existent female refuge of sinners, instead of the precious Lord Jesus himself, who is the real Refuge of Sinners! Catholics should realize since the dying thief went to Jesus directly, without any help from Mary, and he got forgiven and found salvation (Lk. 23:42,43), then such will also work for them today. May Catholics go to Jesus as we are shown to do, instead of another, who can’t produce the important desired results.
