Saved by Faith Alone? What Is Being Saved?

Question: The Bible says, “For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation” (Rom 10:10). We have already been saved through our faith in Jesus. Once we’re saved, we’re eternally saved. When the Lord arrives we will definitely be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Answer: Once you’re saved, you’re forever saved and can enter the heavenly kingdom. This is just man’s conception. This is not at all in accordance with God’s words. Lord Jesus never said that people could enter the heavenly kingdom just by believing in the Lord. Lord Jesus said that only those who implement the heavenly father’s will can enter the heavenly kingdom. Only Lord Jesus’s words have authority and are the truth. Men’s conceptions are not the truth. They are not the standards by which one can enter the heavenly kingdom. The “salvation through faith” that we talk about, This “salvation” only refers to absolving sins, not being legally convicted or condemned to death. It doesn’t mean that the person who has been “saved” can implement God’s doctrine, has been freed from sin or has been cleansed. It definitely does not mean you can enter the heavenly kingdom. Although our faith can absolve us of sin, our sins still remain. We still may often sin and resist God. We live in a constant cycle of sinning, then acknowledging our sins. How can people like that enter the heavenly kingdom? “And holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Heb 12:14). If you say frequent sinners can enter the heavenly kingdom, that isn’t in line with the true nature of the heavenly kingdom. You dare say that those corrupted men, those frequent sinners, live in the heavenly kingdom? Have you ever sen a corrupt, evil person in the heavenly kingdom? The Lord is righteous and holy. Would the Lord allow frequent sinners to enter the heavenly kingdom? “Truly, truly, I say to you, Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant stays not in the house for ever: but the Son stays ever” (Jhn 8:34-35). Therefore, we can see that those who have not broken free of their evil sin and been cleansed will not be able to enter the heavenly kingdom. If what you say is true, and those who gain absolution through faith can enter the heavenly kingdom, then why did Lord Jesus say this, “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” Why did he say he would separate the goats from the sheep and the wheat from the tares? Therefore, “those who believe in the Lord will be absolved and allowed to enter the heavenly kingdom” cannot be true! That belief is directly contradicted by Lord Jesus’s words!
