God can only wisely justify, and continue to justify, those who keep themselves in the love of Godthose who remain devoted to Him.
Again, I think the issue here boils down to how we define salvation (or eternal life). If we use the Bibles (and Finneys) definitionbeing in a restored, right relationship with Godthen, theres really no problem. Its not a matter of doing works to earn ones salvation. Its a matter of us doing what is necessary (the necessary conditions) to maintain a proper relationship with our Father and Friend. Is it works when I do what is naturally necessary in order to maintain a right relationship with my wife? If salvation is truly a real, living, experiential relationship with God, then why do people cry, WORKS! whenever someone proclaims mans obligation in the relationship? The issue here is not trying to earn the right to the relationship, thats Gods free gift in Christ. But if the free gift is truly a real relationship with God, then real relationship, by its very nature, demands some conditions be met on the part of man. Otherwise, what we believe to be salvation is nothing more than a very lopsided deal where man gets off the hook and misses hell, and God gets to spend eternity with a moral harlot.
