You may KNOW that you have eternal life...

Not guess
Not wish on a star for
Not be wishy-washy about

But to know,
to be 100% sure of.
To have is a settled point.

So to review as to the question of Alan's salvation in the Kingdom, the matter is Case Closed!

I understand being confident in Christ. Certainly .... I only have issues with people taking on an "holier than thou" attitude and looking down their noses at others who may not be on the same level of understanding. We are all sinners(present tense) and no one is worthy of salvation. That is my point. Salvation is a gift, even our faith in Christ is given us by God. Were it not for him compelling us by his spirit to believe we would not even believe.

Let the greatest among us be as the least. Not condemning the weak, but being weak as unto the weak. Being all things to all men, and reaching out in love and not in expectation of reward(from those to whom we reach out) or with strings attached.
