If you are really saved, yes, you are always saved. You are really saved if you believe Jesus died to save you from eternal death,yu desire to make him Lord of your life, which means repent of your sins. which means to turn from your sinful wrongs and try your best to obey God. If you stray from your new life with Jesus, he will pull you back, and will use anything that he knows to get you. He loves you, and wants you to be with him. The reason why alot of people live long sinful lives without too much misfortune is because they are not God's children. Would you go around spanking other peoples kids or just your own? Being Saved is a constant and daily choice. You cannot live in sin and expect to return to God. When you take the name of Christ apon you,Christ as your savior he asks for a broken heart and contrite spirit. The Beginings of repentance. True repentance for sin means that you forsake that evil you have done and return to it no more. The Bible talks of three glories the sun, the moon, and the stars. There must be three degrees of glory and there for three stations we can obtain. We must cleanse ourselves in the blood of Christ each day through repentance and obidiance the the laws of the Gosple or we cannot be saved. Faith with out works is dead. God loves all his children and has provided a way for all mankind to return to him. What will you choose? Yes, according to Martin Luther. "God does not work salvation for fictitious sinners. Be a sinner and sin vigorously.... Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice; sin must be committed." "Sin cannot tear you away from him [Christ], even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders." No,it is not true it does not matter who said what, what matters is what the bible says.Every wicked person will not go to heaven as described on 1st Corinthians verses 9-10 ",Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be decieved: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulturers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God" this is just one of many verses that prove my point, but some may think that once your saved you will never sin that is not true because "whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved".So if you sin you have lost your salvation if your already saved and you must be truly sorry for your sins and ask God to forgive you and you will be saved. All of the following passages were written to people who were "saved:" Galatians 5:4 - You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. Galatians 6:9 -And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Colossians 2:18 - Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, Hebrews 6:4-6 - For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. Hebrews 10:38, 39 - Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him." But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. ["perdition" - a perishing, destruction] 2 John 1:8 - Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 2 Peter 2:21, 22 - For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: "A dog returns to his own vomit," and, "a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire."Revelation 2:5 - Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place-unless you repent. "Once saved, always saved" is a comforting notion, but it's not scriptural. Like much false doctrine, it lulls one into a false sense of security...exactly the kind of thing Paul was warning against in Colossians 2:18. ----
No. Firstly, how do you define 'being saved'? Is it just believing on Jesus or is there more to it? Another question.

In particular, the Apostle Paul worried and warned his new disciples not to be tricked by the deceitful ways of the devil (see 2 Corinthians 11, etals). Jesus Himself, warned that narrow is the way to eternal life and He will reject many who 'thought' they were doing His bidding correctly (see Matthew 7).

God is not at war for souls with Satan. Satan is at war with each individual. It is mankind who must put on the armor of God to withstand the devil who desires all to perish. Once called by the Father (John 6:44, 65) and repented (Acts 2:38-39) and baptized, we must follow the perfect example of Christ daily, doing God's good works - this is our obligation for the free gift of God's Grace.

When the few (little flock and the elect) are begotten with God's Holy Spirit, they must not reject it and turn back into the ways of this world. This is the unpardonable sin and there is no other covering for it as Christ shed His blood only once for each of us. Those who become 'firstfruits' in their lifetimes must pray always to be worthy of becoming sons/daughters in the God Family. We all only get one shot at this so make it your best shot.

The baptists believe that if you are saved, by baptism.Then you will be saved for ever. This is not true, you can always backslide from the word of god.

No, we do not. We know that a person must always be living for and serving God to be saved. For instance, someone can be living exactly how God wants them to be for a long time, but then they might go out and sin and never come back to the ways of God. Then they would not be saved anymore. You must always have a refreshing of the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) in your life to be totally confident that you are saved.

No, "Once a cheater, always a cheater" is not always true. A person is more likely to cheat if they have done so before, but this does not mean they are doomed to do so in future relationships. The choice is up to them to change or not. Some do, some do not.
