Image by rogiro via FlickrI have been told by some that when one professes one’s faith, they are “saved” as in salvation. This is line with the protestant theory that one is saved by faith alone.
However, not all faith will saves as only faith in Christ that leads to fruits of good work will. How would anyone who desire Christ and “saved” by Him not do any good works?
This really makes me wonder…. How can faith saves when it has nothing to show (at the time of professing)? I.E. no fruits yet? It would have made more sense if they are saved when there are fruits to show….when they meet the Lord at the Last Judgement.
Then again, who decide and judge that one is saved when one professes ones faith? Ourselves ? Our pastor / priest? Or is that the right of God? How did one come to claimed that one is “saved”?
Another flaw of claiming being “saved” when professing faith is that some may not really want to follow Christ…..a mere act that is at the spur of the moment……will such people be “saved” when professing their faith and then “unsaved” again later when they bear no fruits?
Being saved when one professes one’s faith seems quite unlikely in my opinion….what about you?
