DEAR friends, if you do not know here and now that if you died today that you would be with the Lord forever, it is likely that you will not be with the Lord after you die because you do not believe or have faith in God’s promises. Salvation is by grace through faith. And faith is complete belief based upon complete reliance upon God, who said that by grace you are saved through faith in the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ to your account.
As I see it, the question asked by “How can you say you are saved” has turned this thread into one of the most significant threads I have ever seen on this board by the four last posts which answer that question. And I know that most 2x2s think that it is only after death that anyone can know whether they “made it” or not - and have been taught to think that by their clergy. And THAT shows that 2x2 clergy has always had and taught a deadly LACK of faith.
Perhaps this thread will now show 2x2s how much love they have been getting from believers who have endured 2x2 ridicule for every effort to teach them anything about God or His word. And it might also show 2x2s WHY believers continue to try and patiently endure the common 2x2 ridicule – the Bible clearly tells believers that they WILL be treated the same as unbelievers treated Jesus, who continued to try to teach those people anyway.
