You totally misunderstood the point.
It is not "works salvation", it is what you become..."salvation" will take care of it's own course if one is right with one's self and balanced with the ALL(which is the word Jesus used).
Jesus said : "He who believes to know the All but not himself falls completely short."
I prefer Lambdin;
Jesus said..."If one who knows the all still feels a personal deficiency, then he is completely deficient."
Can we, as humans, ever deny that we all carry personal deficiencies? Not with any honesty we couldn't. GoThomas often can not be fulfilled here, and it was never intended to be. It is frequently preparatory, not for this life but for what is to come.
Jesus said..."Therefore I say, if he is destroyed then he will be filled with light, but if he is divided then he will be filled with darkness."
We can not destroy what we are. Not here. Death will start the process, but we must finish it. "Salvation" is not a given, no matter how you conduct this life.

I will still pray Lawest.
I hadn’t heard that saying. It is a good one. It feels so good when you can give all your worry to God and let Him handle it. He is the one in charge anyway.
Yes we are in need of Gods hand in our lives every day. Prayer/talking with God is the best way that I know of to assure that He is effecting our lives by leading us because it keeps us close to Him. And all that is possible because of Jesus’ sacrifice. I know you know that but you got me to thinking.:)

Sometimes... it is another example even here where 'speech' is understood differently by other lands. For us it is natural to put it that way, meaning...'there is not'– or –'these is no other way'. So when you shout there is NOT, it comes across as a message for others rather... You have been so busy defending you forget you don't have to with me?
We might then say in reply when agreeing with 'No my friend, there is NOT'...'what a question!' I believe the different English customs of how it is used, has been the hardest language to learn to read and write. So Ja Brother... I was agreeing with you, NOT disagreeing!~~smile~~ So let us proceed, secure without question...“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen “
2 Peter 3:18  You need that language, which for me is to live it without the need to preach it. We already have one strong woman preacher in here... G'day Deb!
Peace my friends to both of you... it is why sometimes it is misunderstood by mere language.“7 And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
You may be being a bit sensitive here my friend, how I worded my response to you was simply habit more or less with me, I am very passionate about my beliefs in the Word and do tend to put an exclamation point on certain things, so I am sorry if you found that offensive, but there was no reason in reality for you to do so, and I KNEW that you were agreeing with me and not disagreeing.

Perhaps it is a language barrier in place here at least on the smallest of levels, when we are in fellowship with one another in the church, this is often how we talk with one another when sharing issues dealing with God's truth and perhaps another organization has a different way of doping it, but it is not likely to change among our group because we who have walked in this Holy highway for some time now understand things perhaps from another viewpoint than others.

Well..........as it should be nighttime where you are right now, I pray you a God Blessed night and day ahead IN the Lord. Peace.

I was just pointing out that not everybody shares our views. I have a dog. When I got him from the shelter, he was just a little thing. Now he out weighs me but he's still much gentler than I am.
I wasn't talking to everyone ~ I was talking to Adam.... but just the same, I hope you get what I get in the way of love when you cuddle your gentle doggy :)(Mine is a black Pug)

My mind goes to 'the bride' SP... in contrast to a marriage of this kind. A time when none of this will be applicable.
Luke 20:27-35  Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,{28} Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.{29} There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.{30} And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.{31} And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.{32} Last of all the woman died also.{33} Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.{34} And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:{35} But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
***
… and all will be history. No more fighting over what's right or wrong.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Revelation 21:4-5
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, Your Word me to cast my cares upon you. Oh how I want to do that, to bring all my cares to you and leave them at your feet. I do not want to be a worrier, but one whose faith is strong to trust you. I want to bring those burdens and concerns to you, and not keep picking them up and worrying about them. May this year be one of spiritual breakthrough in my life and in the lives of those I love. May our lives be filled with joy and peace through your Spirit. May you be the center and the heart of our homes. May we be more Christlike and less like the world in our everyday lives. Help us and have mercy upon us, dear God. Please forgive us of our sins and guide our steps. In Jesus' name, amen.

Prime time with God
