The pastors and elders of the religious world frequently preach to believers that by believing in thetheir sins are absolved and they are made righteous through their faith, and that once someone is saved they are saved forever. Consequently, many believers believe that when the Lord returns we can immediately be raptured and enter the kingdom of heaven. Yet the Lord Jesus said, “Not every one that said to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21). Why does the Lord say that not all believers will be able to enter the kingdom of heaven? What exactly is the relationship between being saved and full salvation?
