Fruitless Christians Will Lose Salvation

Excerpted from The Believer’s Conditional Security by Dan Corner. Copyright 2000 by Daniel D. Corner

Fruitless Christians are in the greatest danger that exists in the universe. Unless they repent and bear fruit, they will be severed from Christ and will be thrown into the fire and burned, according to Jesus! What a shock it must be to some to hear statements like this, but Jesus taught this truth more than once!

In Jn. 15:2, Jesus taught about the Father:

He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he trims clean so that it will be even more fruitful (NIV).

Notice how the Father wants fruit. But what happens to people who do not remain in Christ, namely the branches that get cut off because they bear no fruit? Verse 6 gives the answer:

If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned (NIV).

Remember, Jesus taught in Jn. 15:1-10 that there are two types of Christians—those who do remain in him and bring forth fruit and those who do not remain (the fruitless) and end up in the fire! Though the moderate form of OSAS teaches that a real Christian has to remain, the Lord taught otherwise!

The KJV uses the word abide in this passage instead of remain. The reader should be aware that the Greek meaning of abide is remain:

abide, continue, dwell in, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry (for) X thine own.

Similarly, in Mt. 25:14-30 we read the Parable of the Talents. The servant of the Master who was entrusted with one talent never lost that one talent, but gained absolutely nothing. His Master returned from his journey and called him to account. The Master of that servant then said:

And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (v. 30, NIV).

Similarly, in Lk. 13:6-9, Jesus taught about a fruit tree that wasn’t bearing fruit. The owner of the vineyard went to it for three years without finding any fruit. It would be given just one more year to bear fruit—with special attention of digging around it and fertilizing—then it would be cut down (or killed), if it remained fruitless! Fruitlessness leads to termination of life.

Things That Mark an Apostle by Dan Corner

If you know anyone who claims to be a present day apostle, ask him or her if the following Bible passages describe them.

The things that mark an apostle–signs, wonders and miracles–were done among you with great perseverance. (2 Cor 12:12)

For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men. We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored! To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world. (1 Cor 4:9-13)

Remember that the devil masquerades as an angel of light and his servants disguise themselves too. Don’t be deceived by any kind of self-exalting false claims. BE GUARDED.

Former Roman Catholic Dan Corner Exposes Catholicism

Former Roman Catholic Dan Corner once believed as Catholics do. This informative flash cartoon with beautiful original artwork and some hard hitting truths can give the details. This video features Maria whose husband unexpectedly dies. She and her son think that buying Masses will help to get him out of Purgatory but is this a Christian practice backed by Scripture? Is the Mass an unbloody sacrifice for sins condemned by the Bible? Does Mary co-reign with Jesus as Queen of Heaven? Was Peter the first pope and should we confess our sins to the priest?

If these things are true, all Protestants should become Catholics. If they are false, no one should be a Catholic or return to Catholicism. This video deals with these sensitive issues in a loving, gentle way. Please share this with your Catholic friends and family who are in need of salvation!

Calvinism Refuted | Charles Spurgeon Defense of Calvinism Examined by Dan Corner

Calvinism is sometimes referred to as the doctrines of grace. The 5 points (known as TULIP) are Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace and Perseverance of the Saints. Though they are popular they are entirely unscriptural and DANGEROUS. The truth is that man has free will even after salvation. If not guarded, his free will can enable him to enter spiritual deception, turn to evil and die spiritually. Under true Biblical grace, man must continue to follow the Lord Jesus, keep what he has, hold on and continue in the faith. Sadly, many have failed, thereby getting back on the road to hell.

A major advantage for the backslider to get off the road to hell is to know he is on the road to hell again, but this is vehemently denied by the Scripture twisting once saved always saved grace changers. Multitudes continue to perish because of Calvinism, which needs to be refuted for the sake of SOULS.

Evangelist Dan Corner has done a masterful job of exposing and refuting Calvinism. One of his most controversial videos doing such is Charles Spurgeon’s Defense of Calvinism Examined, part 1 of which can be viewed below.
