Can a hardship deprive us of salvation? (Rom. 8:35-39) “35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Suppose that a fall caused by hardships can deprive us of salvation. In this case a hit by head could deprive us of salvation even more.
I think, soul is a backup copy of the brain, just like as for our computers. Then a hit by head cannot damage the soul. If even hit by head cannot damage our position in the heaven, how less could loss of job, debts, etc. How less could becoming a homosexual because of hormonal damage?
So, now I think the reverse: A fall caused by hardships advances our position on the heaven. It is because of (Ps. 103:6) “The Lord makes righteousness and judgment to all who are offended,” (Psalm 146:7) “makes the judgment to the offended, giving bread to the hungry. The Lord permits the prisoners.” See here about how my offence caused me good.
One more question: Can a human lose his faith in Christ due to hit by head? If he loses, will he anyway go the heaven? Or will he be considered dead since the time of the hit and go to the heaven that time leaving a “zombie” on the Earth?
St. Paul considered himself dead. I also consider myself as a half-zombie, because my “spiritual” state was much better before the hits. I remind that Paul was also beaten by the head, no wonder he considered himself dead.
(Rom. 6:11) “Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
