How is your new job going? I know starting in a new place can feel really weird and (for me) intimidating. Lots of new people, new lingo, new schedules, new rules.
But it's also very exciting and a new adventure.
I'm curious, what's the dress code over there in typical businesses? Over here, business casual has taken on a whole new meaning and work places have gotten so casual, people are wearing jeans and sneakers and all sorts. There's a place here in my city where a friend works, and they have margarita machines on Friday.

Quote from: Optimax on March 01, 2019, 11:25:23 amIf you are correct then God lied because scripture says;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Quote from: Bryan on March 01, 2019, 08:54:44 amThis is actually the point of my question. I suppose it depends on believing when salvation happens. If it happens at the point of "conversion" (in most peoples estimation that would be saying the sinners prayer) then I suppose yes it is easy to be saved.
I tend to lean more towards salvation as not being received in this life. Thus if we stumble/fall away there is no salvation and in this case salvation is not easy. Sure, believing in Jesus seems easy enough, but that is not always the case. Trials of faith can be very arduous and taxing.
Quote from: Optimax on February 28, 2019, 02:23:12 pmIt is easy to be saved if:
1. You can believe in your innermost being(heart) that God raised Jesus from the dead.
2. You can confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord (and mean it).
It is not as easy to grow spiritually once saved.
