What is "required" to be a believer? What is "required" to make it to Heaven either through death or Jesus catching us up?
I know these sound like fundamental questions, but as my aunt is a relatively new believer, and I have recently learned that just because I've always heard it said, doesn't make it true, I am now questioning these basics.
Not questioning my faith, just, which scriptures explain what is required?
Things I can point to are:
Acceptance of Grace
So, this sounds simple. This scripture is a pretty good list:
Rev 3:3 Remember then how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
So, it sounds like if you aren't watching for His return, bad things happen. Maybe the question is, how does one define WATCH Biblically?
