|Question / Issue|
|If a saved person had backslided and was living in sin, then died would they still go to Heaven? It doesn't sound like it in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.|
|Answer / Solution|
Yes. A born-again believer who does not live for Christ will still go to heaven, as the context of 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 makes clear in verse 12:
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
12 All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything."
14 If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward.
15 If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire."
