Good Afternoon Grace... on that we agree. Still we have to walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh. According to the scriptures, one can depart from the faith also. Well, you already know those scriptures in which Skom attested to. Here's another one if you don't mind:<quoted text>
True Grace CAME by Jesus Christ..By ONES mans obedience..Jesus's obedience is what makes us righteous not ours.
James is talking to brothers in the Lord (vv19):
"Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you." James 1:21
Concerning OSAS, you and I simply believe differently on that subject.
