Drowning In the Sea of Love

Will I ever have

Assurance of salvation?

Drowning in my fear

Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do.

Thomas Aquinas

When I considered myself a Christian, I always wondered if I was good enough. One of my favorite thoughts was, “Am I Christian enough?” Some pastors tell me that all you have to do is believe. Others say that I must do good deeds. And others say that I must do both. What exactly are the requirements for being saved? Is there a formula or a checklist that I can go by? What is my assurance that I am saved? If I gain it, can I lose it? Jesus says in John 3:16 that we are guaranteed eternal life – if we believe. Believe what exactly?

I love traveling with my wife all over the world. I enjoy the study of nutrition and cooking plant-based meals. I consider myself a Christian agnostic when it comes to god and religion. Namaste, Vic
