Hey, it matters what you believe about this. Read this article and be blessed.
This topic is but one of many reasons why you should be using only the Authorized King James bible. Because corrupt, modern bible versions teach a false message that one’s salvation a process.
The King James says nothing about being saved, it speaks the truth about Christ’s finished work. Look for yourself…
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1.18
“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” 2 Timothy 1.9
If you have life in Christ, you are saved my friend.
