    For too long people have bandied about the term "saved" without understanding what they're talking about. What is it we're saved from? Scripture says Jesus came to save us from our sins. Men, because they are corrupt, changed that to mean He came to save us from the consequences of being sinful. He did come to do that, too, but only as a function of delivering us from being sinful. There is no punishment He would not inflict upon us to deliver us from sin.

    Clarification: "Saved" in my question means avoiding hell, having eternal life on the New Earth with God.

    So? Do you believe you can be saved if you continue to sin? That Jesus will save you as long as you have faith in him and forgive you of your sins, or that Jesus merely assists you on stopping sinning and you have to stop sinning before you can be saved and have eternal life?

    Your definition of saved doesn't interest or concern me, being unbiblical.

    You don't believe Jesus came to pay for our sins on the cross and give us eternal life on the New Earth after the judgment?

    Guess what? Sparko is one of the owners of this site, and you post here at HIS leisure. The 4 owners do not take avoiding a direct question from them lightly. Either state what you believe, or we will change your faith designation to Unorthodox and forbid you from posting in the Christian only areas. Your choice.

    Welp, it's now after September 23. Still waiting for the sign I was supposed to see.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    You missed it? Darfius swam out to sea with his daughters and swung his triton and formed a giant rainbow! Fortunately, I took video:

    It happened dude! The rapture and everything. But then the Mandella Effect kicked in and undid everything.

    I miss the apocalypse.

    Well, there was no alien invasion or giant meteor either! Or gamma ray burst! Or random black hole! Or earth shattering kaboom!
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!
