1. Which sin is so much worse than all other sins that God would pull His salvation away from us?
2. How many times do we need to sin before God pulls His salvation away from us?
We are not saved by works or our ability to be good or bad. We are saved by placing faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross.
Let's look at the word apostasy which means, the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief, an act of refusing to continue to follow, obey, or recognize a religious faith, and an abandonment of a previous loyalty.
It is a falling away or defection.
Middle English apostasie, taken from the Late Latin apostasia, which was taken from the Greek, literally meaning to revolt.
The Biblical Greek explains it this way a-pos'-ta-si, a-pos'-tat (he apostasia, "a standing away from")
It is a falling away, a withdrawal, a defection. Used twice in the New Testament, in the Greek original, to express abandonment of the faith.
Paul was falsely accused of teaching the Jews apostasy from Moses and the teachings of circumcision.
Acts 21:20-21 ESV And when they heard it, they glorified God. And they said to him, “You see, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed. They are all zealous for the law, (21) and they have been told about you that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or walk according to our customs.
There are those who teach that only lost people can commit apostasy. Again, it means to revolt and fall away. How can someone fall off a ladder he has not climbed, and how can someone fall away from, revolt against, or defect from a faith or relationship he does not have?
