(Proverbs 19:16 KJV) He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
As we look at this verse and wonder how it relates to being saved by grace we need to think about something. You can’t “keep” (8104) something you don’t have. This is not a warning to obey the law if we want to get saved. It is a reminder that obedience is not an option and it is necessary if we want to stay saved. You may not like that but I can’t help it if you like instant grits.
I still believe that no one will go to hell who does not reject heaven. For someone who is determined to be lord of their own life an eternity with the real Lord would be utter misery. I think there will be masses who will stand before the judgement seat of God and still be defiant.
So? Grace is extended. Forgiveness is offered. The blessings of eternity are available to those who are willing to enter in. Or not.
