Certainly! The message is clear in the gospels as well as most of the rest of the books we have.
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Perhaps you have a self scripted bible, but the truth is in just about every book of the bible. Your rejecting the bible as a whole shows you are very confused. Repentance and faith is what it takes for salvation, not just believing the facts.

It's a day bye day responsibility to Christians to be in total dependence to God! If you are not enjoying your Christianity more than you did when you were saved something is wrong! Are you trying to live under a yoke of bondage? Let us keep in mind what Paul was trying to teach the Galatians in chapter three! For he said in chapter two verse sixteen Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith of Jesus Christ even we have believed in Jesus Christ that we might be justified by faith of Christ and not by the works of the law: for bye the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

No one has said the law saves. But we still have to repent to be saved or we do not have faith. It is impossible to have saving faith without repentance. Faith without works is dead. It is clear you do not understand Gal. Paul was dealing with Judaizers who taught that to be saved they had to be circumcised and follow the Jewish rituals.

The Bible is very clear concerning what you must now do in order to make His perfect, complete salvation your own. Salvation is a wonderful truth. But is will be of no value to you unless you believe it. It is through FAITH in the Lord Jesus Christ and His complete work that the cleansing power of the blood is applied. It was His sacrificial death on the cross which provides salvation for any lost sinner who will simply TRUST IN HIM as the ONLY Saviour for sin and the ONLY way to heaven. When we believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died, was buried and was raised again bodily from the tomb, and trust that all this was done to accomplish a perfect salvation for sinful man, then we receive full forgiveness of sins and the gift of everlasting life!

No that is not true. You are spreading falsehood. You are speaking about believing the facts. That will not save. It takes repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. God does not save people who remain in rebellion towards Him and it is impossible to be in repentance and rebellion at the same time.
Paul says in Acts;
Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Repentance is a state which we enter into just like faith. We are saved by grace through faith, but repentance is required to bring belief to saving faith.

Two things are very important

To know Jesus Christ as your Saviour so as to be sure right now of your eternal destiny.

To know what is the right truth for the believer today so you can walk in its fullness.

No one gets saved by knowing Jesus as Savior. Unless He is accepted as Lord He does not become our Savior.

If they cannot accept Him for who He is then yes it is sad because they do not get saved.

Remember, what's in your heart will determine what's on your lips. If the truth of God is in your heart, then the Word of God will be on your lips.

I agree with Saved- if Jesus isn't Lord first He can't become Savior.  You have to first acknowledge that you have sinned, and by that are acknowedging His Lordship in determining what is sin.

Sloppy "salvation" is why the church of America is in such a mess.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
