sin after I'm saved, do you think I would still be able to enter
Answer: I would answer this by
suggesting you are saying that salvation depends on what you do,
whether good or bad, and not totally on the cross, which was the
work of Christ. I'm a happy man knowing that my entrance into
heaven does not depend on my deeds, or what I do or fail to do,

salvation is only good as long he or she lives right, is again
believing that salvation rests on what we do, or what we do not
do. This simply confuses the issue. Paul, when writing to a
company of men and women who God had saved, told them, "For by

is the gift of God:"
Ephesians 2:8. God's
salvation is ALL grace, not partial grace or partial works, "And
if by grace, then is it no more of works."
Dear reader, where do you stand in regards to salvation? Have
you believed, or are you still "believing not?"
