I didn’t pretend anything. That is obnoxious of you. Suppose someone accused you of pretending every time you didn’t take a scripture with as literally written.. Would you find I it obnoxious?Oh, sorry, I got confused because you pretended that you accepted the verses I cited.
Jesus is God, and is "the same yesterday today and forever". That same God Who said "the one who sinned against Me I will blot out of My Book" also said "you have a few names that haven't soiled their garments, and they will walk with me in White for they are worthy... and I will never blot their name out of the Book of Life."
So did you also plan on calling into question God's own willingness to keep His Word and blot simmers out from His Book as your strategy (as some have)? Maybe you would like to take a crack at proving He doesn't consider any of His people to be sinful?
I don’t really know what it means. But it would contradict many clear scriptures to claim it means believers can be forever lost.
And it’s an absurd notion to think of God blotting sinners out and back in every 5 seconds when they repent. Which tells me it should not be taken at simple literal face value, it has other meaning.
