[Trick Question] Can you show me scripture that says a believer can go to hell. I am interested in the two sided belief. Thank you.
[Bible Answer] Is that a trick question? As long as a person remains a Bible-defined believer he won’t go to hell, but a believer can become an UNbeliever (Lk. 8:13; Rom. 11:19-23; 2 Tim. 2:18; 1 Tim. 1:19). It is crystal clear that a righteous person can turn to evil and die spiritually (Ezek. 33:18; Rom. 8:13; etc.). Without question, a person sanctified by Jesus’ blood can become an enemy of God and have raging fire await him (Heb. 10:26-29). According to the Bible, eternal life is much more than just the gift of God (Rom. 6:23) and a present tense possession (Jn 6:47; 1 Jn 5:11-13). Eternal life is also a hope (Titus 3:7) yet to be reaped (Gal. 6:8,9), in the age to come (Mk. 10:30) for only the ones who persist in doing good (Rom. 2:7) and don’t grow weary and give up sowing to please the Spirit (Gal. 6:9)! Eternal life is also a promise for the Christians who hold on to the gospel truth they heard from the beginning to remain in Christ and the Father (1 Jn. 2:24-26). Do you know Jesus NOW (1 John 2:3,4)? Are you free from all sin addictions NOW?
