Can Christians Lose Their Salvations?

Many Christians assume that they will get saved by just believing that Jesus has risen from the dead on the third day. After you have accepted Jesus as your Lord, you must stop sinning. You must live a holy life for God. If you sin, you will end up in Hell. You must obey every commandment in the Bible. The Bible is the word of God. It contains the message that God wants to speak to us. God is holy so we must set apart our lives as holy for him. It is important that you read the Bible so that you know God's commandments. If you don't read the Bible, you can easily be deceived when you hear someone preach a different gospel. If you read the Bible, you will know whether what the person preach is in accordance to the Bible (1 Thessalonians 5:19 - 22). You must confess all your sins to God and ask him to use the blood of Jesus to wash away your sins. Before you confess your sins, you should forgive others. If you forgive others, the Father God in heaven will also forgive your sins (Matthew 6:14 - 15). As children of God, we must exhibit the fruits of the Holy Spirit. There are nine fruits of the Holy Spirit including love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22 - 23). Christians must keep the Sabbath holy. On the Sabbath, you must not work or buy things (Exodus 20:8; Jeremiah 17:27). You must not play games, watch televisions, and etc on the Sabbath day. The Sabbath day is to be dedicated to God completely. You must come to church on the Sabbath day. You must keep yourself away from all kinds of sins including sexual immorality, jealousy, hatred, witchcraft, addictions, and etc. Whenever you face a problem, you must discuss with God. You should ask God to help you instead of looking for solutions that are visible. If you depend on Jesus for your problem, Jesus will hear your prayer and answer it. You must be patient and persevere in your prayer. When you pray, you must ask reasonably and have faith in what you pray for. In this way, God will answer your prayer. The two greatest commandments in the Bible are to love God with all your heart, soul and mind and to love your neighbors as you love yourself (Mark 12:30 - 31). If you love God, you will love others. When someone has a need and ask you for help, you must not reject him. You must do what you can to help him. You must not just pray for yourself. You must also pray for others. Every day, you should spend some time to worship and pray to God. You must give your tithe to the church.
