warnings about how we are to behave, warnings about being cut just like the natural
branches of a tree so we could be grafted in. Following God's Spirit walking out of lives
with Him, loving Him and each other, there is nothing that can separate us from God.

My whole point in these posts are simply about believing God is faithful to what he has promised.
If a born again person is guaranteed life like the bible says over and over, then who am I to argue with God?
Now how a person lives after that, is another matter, but the guarantee is still there.
God says what he means and means what he says. People who believe Romans 10:9-10 and then walk on eggshells all their life for fear of losing their salvation is an insult to God and the integrity of his word.
I know I am born again and have holy spirit because I can manifest it via word of knowledge, prophecy, etc. There are 9 manifestations, and every believer can walk in all nine if they have been properly instructed.
To hear people say that salvation is conditional is not life, nor will they have real joy in God and Jesus living a conditional promise.
People who live that way are religious and shallow hypocrites, like the Pharisees. They can then boast of their works, while God laughs or cries, I'm not sure. It is just a sad way to live, with no confidence nor trusting God.
