Another verse that proves, "Once saved always saved is a false teaching." This evidence is building against this teaching. After you read this, go back and read my first post on Heb.6:4-5-6.
The following has been downloaded from my web-site, www.seekfirstwisdom.com
1 Tim.6:9-10, "But they that will be rich FALL INTO temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
Note: To fall into temptation, (above) after they had erred in the faith, (below.)
Ver.10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while SOME coveted AFTER, they have ERRED FROM THE FAITH, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Again note, "after, they have erred from the faith."
"Erred," is to be Seduce. Greek is, apoplanao. To cause to wander FROM, to lead astray to lead from the right way. To be seduce, to be deceive, trans. Passive: Expressing action, or the effect of an action of some agent. And as a Metaphor, To go astray from, as in to swerve FROM, to apostatize, Septuigent, Prov.7:21, "She forced = (seduced) him," Prov.7:21.
So, to "fall into," with the primary idea of motion into any place or thing, and then also of motion or direction to, towards, upon, any place, or thing. Those who are lovers of money, who have "ERRED FROM THE FAITH, and pierced themselves through."
Couple this with, my last post,
2 Pet.2:20, If after they (professing Christians) have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are AGAIN entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning."
Entangled means to get involved again with the pollutions of the world. Note "Pollutions." Pollutions in the Greek means, stained, in a moral sense, to turn back to defiled things.
Note the word "Again." Greek is, epistrepho." It means to turn back upon, to return unto. As a past participle, which expresses a completed action, and a present participle, sequel, "Return back." And absolute, total, complete.
The following is self explaining.
Ver.21, "For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than, AFTER they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. Ver.22, But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire."
