Re: Christ's return
Your salvation doesn't come and go moment by moment depending on what you might be doing or thinking at the time. You don't lose your salvation while having a disagreement with someone, then gain it back later. Go and lead a holy and righteous life as the Holy Spirit guides you, but trust that Jesus has made that ultimate sacrifice for you. Perfection is not attainable and not expected. That terrible sacrifice is why we learn to live for Him, not for ourselves.
