I would challenge any of you who believe that God will take your salvation away to show us in any of Paul's writings where Paul told the people how to act before he told them who they were in Christ. Paul, like Jesus, admonished people to be what they were, not to be so that they could obtain. It must be a bitter life to know that you may or may not have your Father's love.
