Romans 8 : 2 kjv...K

    Amen and Amen, Brother Alex: Your quote of God's word.

    Romans 2:8 For the LAW (the living WORD) of the Spirit of LIFE IN (and of) CHRIST hath made ME (his body) free from the LAW (the written word) of sin and death.

    Romans 6:23 For the wages of SIN (the written Law) is DEATH, but the GIFT of God is eternal (living LAW) LIFE.

    God Bless YOU, his body.

    Amen! As this brother wrote, Salvation is eternal. God did not shed His Blood for us to be cleansed of sin and born again ( Ephesians 2:8-10) to "remove a finished work. However, eternal security isn't a sin licence. While God is just to forgive -- there are consequences to willfully sin while saved.

    As long you serve Jesus because you can back slide for you are yet in the flesh that's why we have to repent for we all come short to the glory of God

    Rev. 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. One of many verses.

    Yes, once saved, always saved. It is God who saves and once he has begun his work in you, he will complete it.

    The other question which we need to ask is "Am I really saved?" since the Bible speaks of many who will be deluded about their salvation. Jesus will say to them on that day, "Depart from me, ye workers of iniquity." So the Bible calls us to constantly examine our faith, to make sure of our election and calling. Sometimes we have the "blessed assurance" that Jesus is ours but we have to always press on in this pilgirm journey till we cross River Jordan into the Promised Land.

    Many scriptures show that those who have been saved must still endure faithfully to the end. ( Matthew 24:13; Hebrews 10:36; 12:2, 3; Revelation 2:10)

    First-century Christians expressed joy when they learned that fellow believers were enduring in their faith. ( 1 Thessalonians 1:2, 3; 3 John 3, 4)

    Does it seem reasonable that the Bible would stress faithful endurance if those who did not endure would be saved anyway?

    This page has some verses about salvation, but I recommend reading through the whole New Testament for more detail.
