I do not believe the warning passages of scripture have been discussed here in a while. There is no need to look at them again as a whole, since they all present the same argument. So what are the thoughts here again regarding these scriptures?

My thoughts as of late are thus:

1) they are the actual means God has ordained to preserve the elect.

2) Written to mixed congregations and given to those who are not adhering to their said profession of faith to the truth.

3) And certainly spoken of the reprobate who do not persevere in the faith.

Any other thoughts?
