I disagree, on a couple of your points, but would like to see bible verses on them.<quoted text> Jesus Christ died for our sins. He saved us already. We have free ticket to heaven...not by our own merits but his blood shed.
Let's keep in mind though that we can, by our free will, throw that ticket out. The word of God is quite clear about what sins left unrepentant will deny us entrance and egernity with him.
Jesus came, born if a vugin, died for the sins of the world, rose the third day, which is the whole gospel.
I believe folks who have accepted this in their heart, are saved. No man "including the one saved "can change that.
Many haven't accepted that Free "to us " gift, and remain lost.
One of the greatest things I was saved from, was myself. Yet again most don't agree with me on this.
