I’ve Been Saved by the Grace of Southern Charm

I miss the South.  A lot.  And I am very thankful that Brian and I got to go back to Georgia for Thanksgiving last week.  It was great getting to see my parents and spend time with my sister.  We, luckily, had a few opportunities to hang out with friends too.  Between our early flight, staying out late, and black Friday, it was a very tiring, but well worth, trip.

  1. Scripture teaches that one’s final salvation depends on the state of the soul at death. As Jesus himself tells us, "He who endures to the end will be saved" (Matthew 24:13; cf. 25:31–46).

    One who dies in the state of friendship with God (the state of grace) will go to heaven. The one who dies in a state of enmity and rebellion against God (the state of mortal sin) will go to hell.

    For many Fundamentalists and Evangelicals it makes no difference—as far as salvation is concerned—how you live or end your life.

    You can heed the altar call at church, announce that you’ve accepted Jesus as your personal Savoir, and, so long as you really believe it, you’re set.

    From that point on there is nothing you can do, no sin you can commit, no matter how heinous, that will forfeit your salvation. You can’t undo your salvation, even if you wanted to.
