    1: 6-9
    To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us
    accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood,
    the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he
    hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made
    known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure
    which he hath purposed in himself:

    You know I see that we are accepted in the beloved, we have through
    His blood redemption the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of
    His grace. All of this is due to Him, not our efforts, we are forgiven so
    we do not have to worry about our sins.

    1: 12-15
    That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In
    whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of
    your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with
    that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until
    the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
    Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love
    unto all the saints,

    We believe and trust in Christ, not for our glory, but His we are made
    righteous in Christ. Christ seals us with His Holy Spirit the earnest of our
    inheritance. I will remind you again, if you do not have God's Holy Spirit
    you do not belong to Him.

    Pauls letter to the Ephesians had 5 chapters. Your entire doctrine is taken from a few verses from one chapter. If what you say is a correct and true representation of what salvation is about then Paul would have no need to write further.

    The truth is Paul wrote a lot more. In fact the rest of of the book [in fact the entire Bible], speaks mostly about righteousness, good works, the avoidance of sin, which if not followed will lead to damnation.

    The very same Christian saints who boast of their salvation, and proclaim that Christ is to be glorified, IF they continue in sin, they are insulting Christ and crucifying him over and over.

    I'm sure he meant to say 5 'more' chapters.
