Will someone lose their salvation if they commit terrible sins is a question asked by a listener recently. She wondered about people who claimed to be a Christian as a child, but later committed terrible crimes like murder, rape, child abuse, etc.

Here are some of the verses that I consider in this podcast answer:


Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.” (John 14:23 NLT)


So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.”  (James 2:17 NLT)


Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.” (Psalm 115:3 ESV)


I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved.” (Matthew 5:18 NLT)


So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.” (Romans 14:12 ESV)


I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.” (1 John 5:13 ESV)
