So far you've said: All the time, a lot and often.

When do we get to never? Ever?

I know what that's like.
At the warehouse where I used to work, they had a walk in cooler and freezer. That's where I started out. All the boxes get covered in frost and you can't tell the spicy chicken patties from the regular chicken patties.
I bet the roosters knew.

No, I'd be lying if I said never.

All the time, a lot and often are subjective terms.

One could say that they sleep "all the time ". That doesn't literally mean they sleep always, does it?

God does answer prayers. I know this because He answers mine all the time...

So you believe that one is saved though faith, not by acts? So the actions of a believer don't matter?
they require both. But if one believes and don't have access to the bible or a church, YWHW will lead that person to act in a way pleasing to YHWH.

God may not be limited to a book, but if God inspired that book, then isn't that book a record of God's instructions to humans?
Are people just expected to hear that some guy named Jesus once lived and claimed to be God? And if you believe in that, then you go to heaven? What if people question that claim, or want to know more? Are they sent to Hell for that?
You've probably heard that some people think Muhammad was God's most holy prophet. If you don't accept that claim on it's face, then you are sent to eternal Hell. Sound reasonable?
Reasonable? iyai!lol.

You must think you dealing with a human when it comes to YHWH.

My thing is, everybody will not have access to the bible. millions of people have lived and died since Christ was on earth and never have the bible or hear of Jesus. I don't believe all of those people are in hell.

I believe YHWH has a special eternal punishment, substantially more punishing, than a person who die just out of naturally being evil and wicked, than a person that die knowing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and choose to refuse the gift.

YHWH has a right to be insulted, angry and vengeful that someone would reject the sacrifice of the Son Jesus Christ.

Same I believe the opposite. That many of those millions of people that died never hearing about Jesus Christ, will be saved. God won't punish someone that never had a chance to reject a gift. The gift of Christ was never presented to them so they could not reject. YHWH will save many of those people based by means that I don't know.

So YHWH does not need the bible to save someone. How a person condemn themselves, is to know about YHWH Son the Christ, and reject that gift. That soul have some explaining to do to YHWH why they reject the Christ.

Better you than me writer. You plan you explanation from now, and good luck freethinker.

Well I honestly do not know about no high pitch whistle but learned they are sneaky shakers cause no warning.House of hard knocks and bumpy roads can make any gal's hat fit quick.Just best to be a one woman band and fly like a eagle free.

Hi wilderide
1 Corinthians 6:11 tells us this.. But you were "cleansed"; you were "made holy"; you were "made right with God" BY calling on the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
If Knowing this makes a believer say..OH BOY, I can do WHATEVER I want now and still be saved....Did not genuinly accept Jesus Christ. How or WHY would a believer want to go back to their old life. God knew we could never obey Him Perfectly. Nobody has ever has been able to do that, except for Jesus. We Obey because we want too, NOT to earn salvation. When we become a child of God, we work in the mission fields, feed the homeless, visit the nursing homes, prisons ect..ect..because we have a New desire in our heart to do so, Not to earn anything. As an adult, When you go visit your earthly father, Do you help him work around his home because you HAVE to or because You want to without expecting anything in return? We do what we do out of Love, Honor and admiration. I understand that you don't believe and I am not pushing anything on you, I just wanted to explain this to you. I hope I was able to give a reasonable explanation as to WHY Christians...(at least most Christians) Do what we do. I don't hate an unbeliever. They are not an enemy to me. Have a nice night my friend.
And yet there are many examples of people who claim to be Christians who do terrible things regardless. So obviously the transformation you describe does not happen with any regularity. Conversely, there are many people who do live saintly lives who are not Christians. It seems logical to conclude that accepting Christ does not reliably result in a change of behavior.

The Bible claims that anyone is eligible to receive forgiveness if the believe in the story of the sacrifice of Jesus for their sins. The person's actions don't enter into it. It's not as if Jesus only suffered and died for the sins of those who would both believe and act in a certain way. Only belief is required.

And yet even that is contradicted by other passages which claim that works are required for salvation too. Paul, for example, opined that women were saved by faith and bearing children (1 Timothy 2:15), blaming Eve (and by extension all women) for the downfall of all humankind. This would seem to leave out women who were born barren.

Romans 4:2 - "For if Abraham were justified by works he hath whereof to glory?"

vs.

Ecclesiastes 12:14 - "For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."

vs.

Romans 4:13 - "For the promise ... was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith."

vs.

Matthew 16:27 - "For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works."

It's a puzzlement.
