Why do many Christians—even when it is clearly shown to them that what they believe is false—persist in embracing error?

Because they would rather follow their leaders and fellow believers, people that they have been familiar with over the years, than “risk” taking a new stance or position.

If they had honestly taken the trouble to scrutinise the issue at hand in light of the Bible, they would have arrived at the truth. And, then, they would know what steps need to be taken to stop believing in error. But they often remain adamant, fiercely resistant to change.  

Unlike the Bereans (Acts 17:11) who are impartial and open-minded to the truth as serious Bible study unveils, it seems that these believers do not mind being led along the slippery slope of deception and destructive heresy (2 Peter 2:1).

Preferring to share the same creed as their friends, they continue to embrace doctrines they have been familiar with for a long time. After all, they might be branded as renegades and lose their friends if they should decide to embrace change. So for convenience and comfort, they would rather let friends and familiarity dictate their allegiance to correct values and principles.

Another key reason why people persist in false doctrine is that it is so soothing to their ears. Though the teaching is aberrant, it gives them a "feel good" feeling.

  • Isn’t it good to know that, once we have confessed our sins when we first received Christ, we need not confess anymore if we should sin?

  • Isn’t it good to know that all our future sins are automatically forgiven?

  • Isn’t it good to know that once we are saved, we will remain saved (OSAS)—no matter what we do or fail to do?


Why it’s easy to be fooled without realising you’ve been had.

Hyper-grace teaches us that, after our one-time confession of sin at conversion, believers no longer need to confess our sins. When God looks at us, all He is going to see is Christ’s blood, not our sins whether it is past, present or future. We merely rest in the ‘imputed righteousness of Christ’. Is it true that sin need not be dealt with after conversion since we merely rest in the ‘imputed righteousness of Christ’?
Hyper-grace teaches that the future sins of Christians are automatically forgiven (FSAF). Is it rational to say Christ’s blood covers all our future sins even before it came into being?

Hyper-grace teaches that believers enjoy eternal security and will never lose our salvation: “The truth is you are saved by grace and you are kept by grace. It’s grace from start to finish! Don’t let anyone frighten you into doing dead works, but rest secure in His finished work. Just as you did nothing to earn salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose it.”
Is it true that believers will never lose our salvation—even if we deny God or willfully live in sin?
