Most Important Condition of Salvation: Faith in Christ

Years ago I wrote about the seven conditions of salvation. I wrote six. Why? Because as this website was originally intended for a primarily Christian audience, I assumed the readers would know the seventh condition, which is the most important: Faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Now, however, this website has grown and is getting a good number of views, some from a wider audience … read more

Sixth Condition of Salvation: You Must Refrain From Covetousness To Receive Inheritance In The Kingdom of God

Most Americans may be headed to hell if something doesn’t change. I know this is a brash statement, but it is based on the Bible. Why Americans? Not just Americans, but most people living in the West, in Capitalism and excess. This is not to say that capitalism is evil, no, not at all, so do not infer I am saying that. What I am saying is … read more

Fifth Condition of Salvation: You Must Maintain Sexual Purity In Order To Receive Your Inheritance of Salvation

This fifth condition of salvation is an extension of the second condition. This is that in order to receive salvation, you must maintain sexual purity. Now, if you have already been living a lifestyle of sexual immorality, then I cannot tell you whether you will be forgiven or not. However, I can say that according to the first condition of salvation, Jesus said that if we forgive … read more

Fourth Condition of Salvation: You Must Not Become Prideful or Arrogant About Your Salvation

Refraining from pride of one’s salvation is another condition of salvation. Romans 11:18-22 says: “18 do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. 19 Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in. 20 That is true. They were broken off because of their … read more

Third Condition of Salvation: You Must Continue In The Faith, Never Turning Away, To Receive Salvation

Not only do you need to perform good works as well as address the heart and inner issues, but also you need to continue to do this until the day you die. If you do not, then you do not receive salvation and you are headed to hell. The evidence for this is in 1 Corinthians 9:24-27. “24 Do you not know that in a race all … read more

Second Condition of Salvation: You Must Do The Will of God To Be Part of the Family of God

Jesus said that the people who are truly saved are those who do the will of God. In Matthew 12:50 Jesus says, “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” Jesus didn’t say, “Whoever believes in their heart is my brother or sister or mother, no matter what they do because they are saved by my unconditional grace”. … read more

First Condition of Salvation: You Must Forgive Others In Order To Receive Forgiveness By God

Jesus says something shocking they you may never have seen (or never perceived) before. This statement Jesus made is in diametric opposition to the most core, fundamental principles of Calvinism, western Christianity, and the doctrines of total depravity and unconditional grace. This condition is stated plainly in Matthew 6:15: “But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.“ This shocking … read more
