He told them to stand fast in liberty wherewith Christ had made them free, and stated that they were "fallen from grace" (Gal. 5:1-7). He plainly told them that "once in grace always in grace " was not true in their case.
He told those who had not fallen how to restore those who had fallen: "Brethren if a man be overtaken in a fault [Greek, sin], ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted" (Gal. 6:1). This proves that saved men can sin and must be restored to be saved. He warned that those who had not sinned should take heed lest they also sin. If a man who has sinned needs restoration, then he needs the new birth as much as any other sinner, and must have again moral change that comes with the new birth, or be lost like any other sinner. (Gal. 5:19-21). Paul continued by telling the Galatians that what a man sowed he would reap. This applies to the saint as well as the sinner. How often a man sows, that often he will reap (Gal. 6:7, 8). A man might as well argue, once sowed always sowed, and no reaping is necessary, or once reaped always reaped, and no sowing again is possible, as to argue once in grace always in grace. Such line of reasoning is illogical and foolish, and nothing is to be gained except deceiving oneself if one wants to sin and still believe he is saved.

In Romans, Paul teaches that men become dead to sin or dead to righteousness when they serve the one or the other. As often as men change masters they become dead to one or the other, thus proving they can have a spiritual quickening as many times as is necessary. It is God's will that men die only once to sin (Rom. 6:5-10), but if they go back into sin, the same process will have to be repeated (1 John 2:1, 2; James 5:19, 20; Gal. 4:19; 6:1; Rev. 3:5).
