In-depth Bible Study of 2 Corinthians 5:12-15, 20
If the love of Christ controls us we will compelled, urged, driven to love Christ. Since He died for us we will want to die for Him. We are much better ambassadors for Christ when we truly understand His love.
An in-depth look at 2 Corinthians 5:10. There is going to be the judgment of all Christians in heaven. They will be judged for the good and bad they have done and rewards given. Does this mean their will be punishment for the bad deeds, or does it mean that there will not be any reward for the bad deeds? If Christ blood covers all unrighteousness there will not be punishment in heaven.
There are Christians that believe Once Saved, Always Saved which means you are guaranteed to go to heaven no matter how you live if you are born again. There are others who believe as a Christian you can Lose Your Salvation (Walk Away from God)because you have free will and can walk away from God.
There are Bible verses that defend both positions. There are Bible verses that contradict both positions. Here is what all Christians should be able to agree on. If Jesus is more than Savior but also Lord of lords in your life, you may fall short, may even backslide for a time, but you will come back to HIm if you are saved. We should also be able to agree it is a very dangerous thing to "play in the devil's camp".
