In an interview with actor, John Schneider, he identified himself in a most disturbing way, yet he claims to be a Christian. His self description is another strike against the holy image of Christian, but consistent with the heresy of eternal security. First, his words are cited, then the Scriptures to the opposite:
FOX411: You’re born again?
Schneider: Yup, it’s been a while since I’ve been to church, but you don’t get unborn again. It’s been so long I’d rather not go there. I make movies about people who kill each other justifiably, and Christians do not like me that much anymore because I drink whiskey and I believe that my relationship with God is between me and God, kind of a Johnny Cash thing. I’m not a Christian for your benefit. I’m a Christian for my benefit and how I walk my walk is my business, and how you walk your walk is your business. It’s kind of a box people put me in. I might have jumped in that box, I might have even built some of it around myself years ago. Things change. I don’t care who people marry or what people drink. I care that people are honest and they’re not trying to take something away from me that I’ve worked hard to give my kids.

Schneider spouted off the old false grace cliche that one can’t get unborn, which strongly shows some once saved always saved contamination, since that is uniquely their feeble argument. NOTE: Christians don’t say one can get unborn. Instead, they say a righteous man will die spiritually if he turns to evil (Ezek. 33:18; Rom. 8:12,13; etc.)
Is John Schneider’s self description consistent with a real Christian? Look at the evidence for yourself:
We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (1 John 2:3,4)
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9,10, NASB).
and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him (Heb 5:9)
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. (Rom 6:22)
The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Gal 6:8,9)
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. (Gal 5:24)
