A person is saved by faith alone in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was killed, buried and bodily resurrected 3 days later to pay for all our sins.
Soteriologically speaking, Free Grace Theology is true and Lordship Salvation Theology is false. Sola Fide is true. Even the smallest amount of Faith Alone in Christ, like a mustard seed, saves us.
Works Salvation is False. Faith + Works Salvation is False. Physical water baptism does not save us. Surrendering your life to Christ does not save you. Avoiding committing sins does not save you. Doing good works does not save you. Turning from sin does not save you.
However, if a person believes in Faith + Works Salvation, then they are still saved because they still have that faith. If a person has faith in Christ, but does not believe in Faith Alone, then they are still saved because they have faith. They donft need the knowledge of the specific theological concept of gFaith Aloneh, faith alone still remains true even when they donft believe in it, but they believe in Christ, so theyfre already saved.
Faith Alone Seed -> OSAS Permanent Salvation -> Eventually Good Works Are Produced.
Good Works do not save us, rather, they are the inevitable result of us being already saved!
Repentance (Noun F) = Metanoia ÊÃÑάËÍÇ¿, ¿ς, ἡ (met-an'-oy-ah) = A change of mind
Repent (Verb) = Metanoeó ÊÃÑ¿ËÍέÖ (met-an-o-eh'-o) = To change onefs mind
NOT sorrow for sin. NOT turning from sin. NOT feeling sorry for sin. Of course, those are still good things to do, but repentance refers specifically to the change of mind itself.
Faith is that which is given from God, and it is God who decides who is saved pre-mortem vs post-mortem. Therefore I reject decision theology aka decisionism, which states that a person must make a conscious decision of their own free will to accept Christ as their savior. I do not believe in Free Will at all. Faith is something that God decides to give to people, He chooses when a person is saved.
Faith cannot be a purely intellectual cognitive awareness of knowledge, because thatfs Gnosis.
