    John 10:28  I [Jesus] give unto them the (true followers, or ‘sheep’) eternal life; and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand.

    Rev. 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Q. Considering this, and other related scripture, God having to blot out a name from the book of life would mean:

    • A.

      God makes mistakes.

      Some have been snatched from Jesus’ hands?

    • C.

      God didn’t know that some of His sheep were really goats.

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "None of the above." This is because the scriptures mentioned in the question do not imply that God makes mistakes or that some have been snatched from Jesus' hands. Rather, it suggests that those whose names are not written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. Therefore, God does not need to blot out a name from the book of life because those who are not written in it will face punishment.
