"In justification, God accepts us as we are; but once justified, we cannot stay as we are." --Trobisch. I disagree with the 75%.
There you go; ever anemic when it comes to quoting the Scripture, but falling all over yourself in your rush to quote your "scholars."
Here, let me show how simple it is to quote EVERY Believer's SOLE authority in ALL matters of faith; Matt. 4:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
Here ya go...
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
