    For who so ever shall call on the glorious name of the LORD shall be saved .
    Yes indeed .
    That if you will believe from the heart that God has rose Christ from the dead and confess with the mouth you shall be saved .
    LET the GLORIOUS LORD BE PRAISED .

    Acts 2:21 is a principle. Seeing that there is none "righteous" and that "no one seeks after God", how then can anyone call upon His name? NONE! Romans 3:10-11.

    To "confess with the mouth" means to have the same mind with God and to do will of God only, and if born again, not only to "admit" we are sinners.

    To believe means "we hang our lives" on Him. This does not mean to "acknowledge."

    Deuteronomy 6:25, 10:16; Ro. 3:4, 10-11; 9:32. Jer.17:9.

    To "believe" and to "confess' are the result of salvation and NEVER the cause.

    That's exactly my sentiments! No reprobate gives honor and praise to God but only after he becomes saved.

    9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
    10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
    11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
    12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
    13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
    14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
    15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
    16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 2 Corinthians 9-16.

    'repentance' means "STOP sinning"? Sinners CANNOT "STOP sinning," Because
    THEY ARE IN "Bondage!" +
    NO! God Has NO SIN TO "REPENT" OF:

    HE Did "Change HIS Mind {Repent}" Many Times":
    (Genesis 6 : 6; Amos 7 : 3, 6; Zechariah 8 : 15 KJB! + Many More!)

    Thus, "repent" Means "to Change our mind" about sin, And "Admit TO
    God That
    "sin Is WRONG, And that we Have OFFENDED HIS Pure HOLINESS,"
    Transgressing HIS "HOLY Law!" Amen? And, THEN, Do THIS:

    Precious friend(s). God's Will, Today, Under HIS PURE GRACE? Very Simply:

    (1) believe, 100% trust, place Total faith, In The LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIS
    Death {Precious BLOOD}, Burial, And HIS Resurrection, According To The
    Scriptures! (
    1 Corinthians 15:3-4; cp Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3-5 KJB!)

    Results: all sins Forgiven, Eternal Life, And, Peace With God!
    Then, "submitting To God Daily - HE Will Help"
    us to sin less & LESS!

    (2) Fulfil ALL Of His Law, In "ONE Word: LOVE thy neighbor as thyself!"
    (
    Galatians 5:14; Romans 13:8-10 KJB!)

    (3) "Study" HIS Word Of Truth, Rightly Divided, for "Approval!"
    (
    2 Timothy 2:15 KJB!)

    Eternal Results: reward, ruling, and reigning With CHRIST!


    Precious friend(s): Please Be Very Richly Blessed!

    That’s completely erroneous.

    It doesn’t say when already saved you will believe and confess, it says IF you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead you SHALL be saved - not, you already are saved.

    It goes on - FOR with the heart we believe unto righteousness and with the MOUTH confession is made UNTO SALVATION. For, whosoever SHALL call upon the name of the Lord, SHALL be saved.

    Even after coming to faith, we still must CHOOSE to confess our faith with our mouth, AND choose to call upon His name, to be saved.

    Shalom.

    Still, you have NOT gotten the gist of Romans 3:10-11. Read it carefully and understand what those verses declare against your comments above!

    Furthermore, read Jeremiah 17:9 and try if you can reconcile it with Romans 10:9!

    I’d say it’s Calvinists that distort the scriptures to make them fit their dogma, which makes them get salvation exactly backwards.

    Scripture is crystal clear that faith precedes grace and salvation, yet Calvinists insist salvation precedes faith and grace

    Ephesians 2 makes it clear that we get grace THROUGH FAITH, so faith comes first,

    and not that grace/salvation precedes faith.

    Acts 16 makes it clear to the jailer that to be saved He must first BELIEVE.

    The Romans 10 passage refutes reformed dogma, by stating that faith comes by hearing the word of God preached in verse 17 - and doesn’t say that faith comes from the elect being regenerated first, so that they can believe.
