"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ." - Titus 2:11-13
Modern saints may think they cannot fall (and if some do they believe they were really not saved to begin with), but Christ accused the early saints of falling and required them to repent and do their first works again or be removed.
Many words such as: abide, continue, remain, let, lest, beware, be diligent, repent, cast off, deny, sin willfully, hold fast, except, whosoever will, take heed, be not, mortify, sow, abstain from, follow, yield, forsake, gone astray, etc. are used in Scriptures many thousands of times. These words imply that there are conditions and a power of free choice on the part of the saved or they mean nothing.
