Unless a person repents and turns from sin, they will never be saved. It doesn’t matter how much they “believe in Jesus”, for even the devils believe, and tremble. No, God is quite clear, that unless a man repents, he will perish. A willful surrender of our sin always comes before salvation, and then, once our sin has been washed away by the blood of Jesus, we can come near to God and have sweet fellowship with Him who is holy and good.
(Luke 13:3) (2 Corinthians 7:10)
