Bryan Denlinger (husky394xp) works salvation

"Do I teach eternal security? Yes I do. I will continue to teach it. Why? Because Christians that I have met (Bible believing born-again Christians, that I have met), they don't mess with the book and they don't mess with the Jews. So I believe in eternal security." 24:46-25:05

"Sodomites can be saved, alright. And I believe there are some that have gotten saved and gotten away from it. But only if they turn from that sinful life, you see. That is why I teach repentance. I don't just say that anybody can get saved by believing." 26:34-26:50
I use to watch Mr. Denlinger because he claimed he was a KJB believing and dispensational "Ruckmanite". However, after I realized he was teaching works, lordship salvation (faith+sinner's prayer+turning from sin), I had to unsubscribe. 
His videos on eternal security make no sense. One minute he says 'I believe in eternal security' then the next minute he says 'but if you commit one of these sins you will lose your salvation'. How is it ETERNAL? 
He used the book of Revelation to back up his claim, but Revelation is NOT about the Body of Christ. It is the future Jewish believers of the gospel of the kingdom that have to overcome in order to avoid losing their salvation (Matt. 24:13-14, 42-51). 
As members of the Body of Christ, we have already overcame because we are IN CHRIST, and He already overcame the world (John 16:33).  Why would we have to "overcome" if " things present, nor things to come" can separate us from the love of God? (Rom. 8:29-39)
Believers under grace have eternal security (Eph. 1:13-14, 3:12, 4:30, 4:32, 5:32, Rom. 4:4-8, 8:1-9, Rom. 8:29-39, 1 Cor. 1:1-9, 3:15, 5:5, 11:32, 1 Thes. 5:9-10, 5:23-24, Phil. 1:6, 2 Tim. 2:11-13, Acts 13:38-39, Col. 2:10-13, 3:13). 
Bryan Denlinger said that if you hate the Jews then you will lose your salvation. His only proof text was Romans 11, but that is not what the text says. Paul is talking to the "Gentiles" and the "world" (vs. 11, 12, 13, 15), not the Body of Christ. Also, the context is not individual salvation, it is national blessing and position. Israel fell from being God's chosen people and channel of blessing temporarily (Rom. 11:25-27). Paul is not saying that all Israel lost their salvation. 
Bryan Denlinger's logic is this: members of the Body of Christ were graffed into salvation, but if they hate the Jews, then they will be broken off from salvation.
Here are some questions for Mr. Denlinger:
1.) If Paul is talking about saved Gentiles being broken off from salvation, then wouldn't that mean he was also referring to saved Jews being broken off from salvation in verses 1-15? Why did the saved Jews lose their salvation? ("broken off")
2.) The reason Israel was "broken off" is because of UNBELIEF (vs. 20). So how could members of the Body of Christ (people who have believed on Christ) be "broken off"? 
3.) Paul says that the Jews could be graffed in again after being broken off (vs. 23), so does that mean that they can lose salvation and then regain it? 
4.) How could a member of the Body of Christ lose salvation when he has become predestinated to be conformed to the image of Christ? (Rom. 8:29) Is Paul contradicting himself in Romans?
5.) By saying that a Gentile cannot hate Jews and be saved, then aren't you putting yourself back under the OT plan of salvation for Gentiles? (Gen. 12:3)
There are many other questions that could be asked of Mr. Denlinger, but that is enough for now. 
It is obvious that Mr. Denlinger believes in works salvation. He says that you must "turn from sin" to be saved? What sins? It is impossible to turn from all sin (Rom. 7:18, 8:8, Ps. 40:12). 
Here is a list of sins. I would like Mr. Denlinger to tell us which ones we must turn from in order to be saved: Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like. 
How can someone that is dead in trespasses and sins possibly "turn from sin"? Turning from sin is for people who are already saved, who have the Spirit of God in them and have been baptized into Christ by the Spirit (Rom. 6:1-14, Gal. 2:20). 
Besides that, turning from sin is a WORK...
Jonah 3:10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
If man could turn from his sins on his own, then why did Christ die?
Telling a lost person to turn from sin before they can be saved is pointless. A lost person cannot turn from sin and they have no reason to. They do not have the Spirit of God in them and they do not have the word of Christ dwelling in them. They are "children of disobedience" with the spirit of Satan working in them, how can they turn from sin? (Eph. 2:1-2).  
But Bryan Denlinger openly admitted that he does not believe in salvation by faith alone. "I don't just say that anybody can get saved by believing.
Thankfully the Bible says, but to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. (Rom. 4:5) 

It also says, In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, (Eph. 1:13)

Mr. Denlinger's statement on eternal security is the worst I have ever seen. He plainly says that his belief has nothing to do with what the Bible says, his belief is based on his EXPERIENCE with the BEHAVIOR of other "Christians"...

"Do I teach eternal security? Yes I do. I will continue to teach it. Why? Because Christians that I have met (Bible believing born-again Christians, that I have met), they don't mess with the book and they don't mess with the Jews. So I believe in eternal security." 24:46-25:05
Sadly Bryan Denlinger is just a Roman Catholic cake with some Bible-believer frosting. He is works salvation to the core.
