But GOOD works do save.
Why are the disciples told in MT 24:13, MK13:13 that in order to be saved that they must endure to the end? Were not the disciples already saved? What does saved mean, anyhow? Maybe we should start following the rules of grammar and, every time we see the words saved or salvation, ask the question: "Saved from what?" and "Saved to what?".
Rev 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
It is those that DO His commandments that receive of the Tree of Life.
22:14 Happy are those who are rinsing their robes, that it will be their license to the tree of life, and they may be entering the portals into the city.
anyone INCHRIST will be doing ""works"". one dosent do works to GET SAVED.
i will not go round and round with this. we can prooftext at each other all day long.
The words ""saved"" and ""salvation"" have all but lost all meaning in the 21st century western world.
Good day and blessing to you.
