But what is your take on what would have happened if the prodigal son or anyone who had received salvation backslides by rejecting the Father, His Son, the Holy Ghost and totally turned away from the faith and DIED without having repented or had the opportunity to return to the fold. Would that person be heading for hell or heaven? This is a conversation that came up with a couple of my work colleague when we were in an after discussion on Luke 15:11-32 so I would be interested in having a discussion and receiving everyone's point of view.

I wanted to add something in addition to what was stated and I think it should be, which is Ananias & Sapphira are an example for us. I mean was the Holy Spirit present or was the Holy Spirit present through a person?
One of the reasons the enemy likes to cause confusion is so that we argue and tell each other off, but at least holds something against the other, not understanding it is Holy Spirit the breathes life even into our enemies, but which why we are to love our enemies.
I was very impressed with Michael the angel while he was being tormented by Satan. Michael had the power of God to seriously blast Satan, but Michael did nothing and said nothing. The reason is, is because even Satan was created by the Holy Spirit and Micheal either loved or respected the Holy Spirit not to blast Satan. This really should be a example in how we treat one another. We like to think we are yaking to an individual, but really were are talking to God through the person.
Do you realize the power God has given us even to end Wars with the power of our words we speak? Today people us words with little respect and even try to put a spin on them as to lead to confusion.
I beg God for His mercy on all of us.
Wow it seems as though we have alot of professors claiming to profess..... lol,,, thankyou all for educatory lessons,, i just asked a ? to see the answer.. thank you brothers and sisters...but please it must be noted that everyone who says they are saved are not.. our Father did not send his son to redeem us so that we can do any and all things,, die and then enter into the Kingdom!!!!! so if salvation as you believe is eternal,, why is there a Hell... You do know that thoughh shall commit no murder,, yet Christians kill everyday. you have heard it said that though shalt not steal,,yet Christians steal from christians everyday... now we all have know that the enemy comes too steal kill and destroy...
Part of the discussion that the sister opened said "without REPENTING", so with all of the answers having been given.. do you believe that we since being saved, we can go to heaven without repenting????
yes rev. watson, repentance i believe is just as important as any other aspect of salvation,, seeing that just as Grace, Repentance which does come along with forgiveness, is continual,,, an every day occurence,, you know so-called leadership does not teach this, because it takes the dependance off of them and keeps us dependant on GOD...
HELLO, CAN ANY ONE EXPLAIN FROM BIBLE WHAT UNPARDONABLE SIN IS?
