Great verses, but there are many others which say that one cannot lose his salvation. Only God knows who will and who won't, we may be sure of our own but we can never be sure of others. If we clearly see the fruits of the Holy Spirit working in our lives, then we can conclude that we are on the narrow path that leads to eternal life.
You cannot lose your salvation,but you can walk away. Let me give you an example.
We had a pastor and wife that pastored my home church. Great people. They came in to a church spit and got the church back on its feet. We saw new people come to church,people were saved.We were close friends with them. Wonderful preaching,old time preaching. I moved to the US and kept in touch by FB. A few months ago I noticed she seemed to be upset and depressed.When I asked her if I could pray for her she broke down and told me her husband had had an affair with a worship leader. She is 30 he is 55. Not only did he have an affair he told his wife that he didn't see a problem,that he could satisfy them both sexually.
I knew this pastor on a personal level.I was very close to them when they pastored the church as I was in ministry at that time. For someone to tell me that he was never saved in the first place is complete nonsense. The man chose to walk away from God's grace. Everyone who knows the man is utterly shocked. I've never seen him hug another woman other than his wife. I was in their home,often. And I know he was saved. Salvation is a free gift and you can refuse it,you can know the truth and walk away. The parable of the sower and the seeds proves that point.
