Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law;
ye are “fallen from grace”. Galatians 5:4 KJV

How can it be that we are eternally secure in Christ, and yet here it implies that we can fall from grace? Satan has used this scripture to keep many of God's children in bondage to a fear of "falling away", or losing salvation.  You need to examine it further.


One reason I am a "fanatic" on the KJV is because we learn after a while that words are important.


 Picture a box. (See box illustrated above)


It is a large box.


You are sitting ON the box, someone else is IN the box, and since our imaginary box is suspended in the air, someone else is climbing UP to the box and is close to being IN the box.


However before he gets IN the box, the ladder step (law) breaks and he falls FROM the box.


Just an illustration.


The ones who are "fallen FROM grace" never got IN grace to start with.


They were much like todays *Seventh Day Adventists, who, while professing faith in Christ, insist that it is necessary to keep some of the Law to remain saved.

*Most of the church's founders, including James White and Joseph Bates, openly rejected the Trinity and the deity of Christ. The SDA Church did not officially endorse a "Trinitarian view" until 1946, and it still fundamentally distorts the historic doctrine of the Trinity as expressed in the Nicene Creed.


That is just the error Paul is teaching against here. He is simply saying that; If you don't receive salvation as a free gift, you have believed in vain, You got right up to grace, but being unable or unwilling to receive Christ as a free gift of grace, you have fallen FROM that grace.


You were “never saved to start with.


You couldn't let go of the law.


You were never IN,
because if you were IN you couldn't fall OUT,
but if you were OUT and heading IN,
you could fall FROM.
