Faith in Jesus is essential to be save from eternal damnation.

Many equate faith and belief. They are not the same. Faith requires knowledge of who Jesus is (God) and what He has done (sacrifice). We also need to trust in Jesus and that His will be done. Thirdly, we must agree with the knowledge that we have about Jesus (Scripture).

The three elements of faith, knowledge, trust, and agreement, are the keys to salvation. All work in unison in order for you to accept and be granted the most important gift of all, eternal life. It is the most important decision in your life.

Having read your posts i can say without doubt you have yet to enter it. You sound like someone who has entered in to the kingdom of God. You do know Jesus said seek first the Kingdom of God, in other words on it being found it is a present reality, and the reality is you talk and act like a citizen of it. Blabbing out your beliefs about the bible is not proof you have entered it.

Unadulterated balderdash.

"Elect," indeed.

Somehow you got this wrong. The three elements are faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love.

You began with a threat and twisted the truth.

Faith in what Jesus represents including a commitment to that Way is essential to membership in the Kingdom.

What is so wrong with using the Word as elect when the Lord Himself spoke of such where the good soil is concerned.
If you've ever felt conflicted wouldn't that be more of personal matter between you and The Lord of Lights.

You have share over the yrs here how you were raised with a family that believes. Has something gone so wrong during your life that could of jeopardized such a free gift as to be an heir of adoption.
If so,
Why do you not ask for help from the Healing wings that are available in the spirit.

Some here may not have the gifts to articulate as well as yourself. Even so that doesn't mean that out of the entire assembly of the Lord that no one member of the body is unable to offer help in some way.

Life is in the blood trout dude.

After you receive Jesus by faith, you MUST become obedient to His teachings. Faith without obedience is not the narrow road that leads to eternal life.
