Salvation is repenting of sinful acts and placing all 100% of your faith in Jesus alone. You must prove your repentance by your deeds. Stop doing wicked things. Obey the Holy Bible. Jesus taught the road to life is hard. Not many find eternal life according to the Bible. Many people who got saved fell away. In other words, after finding salvation, you must endure to the end to get into God’s kingdom and escape the fiery lake of burning sulfur. Eternal life comes to those who repent the second they believe on Jesus. There are many false teachings in our day such as once saved always saved. True biblical grace teaches that eternal life is a hope that is also yet to be reaped in the age to come and only for those who persist in doing good and don’t grow weary or give up. Does that describe you?
The following letter was received by Evangelical Outreach and the response follows.
I read about suicide on your web page where i got this e-mail address. i have often heard that suicide is the only unforgivable sin, and that it damns the soul to hell. i’m not being a smart aleck here, but what if one were to jump off a tall bridge or building and ask for forgiveness on the way down, before dying? i am being truthful when i say i’m not making a joke. i’ve had suicidal thoughts for most of my life, and i’m 36. please take this question seriously and respond. thank you.
[Response: Suicide is self-murder. Murderers go to the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8). How is one able to repent BEFORE the sin? There is no such thing in the Bible. Besides repentance must be sincere. How could it be if one is NOT SORRY for his murder since it is all planned out and acted upon including the so-called “repentance”? If you get saved you’ll have a purpose to live, peace, joy, love and truth. To live for GOD is the greatest life anyone could ever have. GOD BLESS YOU.]
