The only way to have SALVATION, eternal life, is to OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ. What is the gospel of Jesus Christ? REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED and then He will FILL YOU with the Holy Spirit and His Holy Spirit will GUIDE and TEACH you. You will come into FELLOWSHIP with Jesus Christ, you will KNOW Him for REAL and IF you follow Him until the very end you will have eternal life.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is NOT about EDUCATION, not about Bible knowledge and church, and religion. It is about OBEDIENCE to Jesus Christ. You have to OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ. The only way that you get to KNOW Jesus Christ is if you REPENT.
If you go on your knees and you cry out to Jesus and you REPENT of your sins, you PLEAD His FORGIVENESS with REMORSE AND WITH THE INTENTION of NEVER GOING BACK TO THAT SIN EVER AGAIN or else He will not forgive you, or else He will NOT HEAR YOU. He will not LISTEN to you if you are not serious, if you do not intend turning away from your previous lifestyle, from sin and from seeking your own ways and if you are not serious about following Him and living to please Him until the end of your life
He will not HEAR you, He will not answer your prayer.
And then you have to be baptized in water for the washing of of your sin and He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit. He will give His Spirit in you to GUIDE and TEACH you. You do not need EDUCATION. He will tell you everything that you need to know because He will be IN you and WITH you and He will guide you.
But most people do not know Jesus Christ. Most believers never repented. They never OBEYED Him and that is why they do not KNOW Him.
Salvation is about OBEDIENCE to the gospel of Jesus Christ. REPENT and BE BAPTIZED in water and He will FILL you with the Holy Spirit. If you do not have the Spirit of Christ you do not belong to Him and you cannot follow Him. If you have not received the Holy Spirit you cannot follow Him. You have to first OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ. REPENT and BE BAPTIZED, BE SERIOUS about following Jesus.
If you are still in sin you are LOST. If you are still practicing sin then you are a son of the devil. If you are not LED by the Spirit of God you are not a child of God, you are a son of satan. There is only one way to have SALVATION and that is to FOLLOW Jesus Christ, you have to OBEY Him, deny yourself, pick up your cross every day and follow Him but you cannot follow Him if you do not HEAR His VOICE. If you have not received the Holy Spirit.
FIRST obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, REPENT and BE BAPTIZED and He will FILL you with His Holy Spirit and He will guide you by His Spirit. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Christ will guide you and will teach you all things but you do not have the Holy Spirit you do not belong to Jesus Christ and you are LOST.
Seek Jesus NOW, OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ, REPENT and BE BAPTIZED and be filled with the Holy Spirit and then only can you follow Jesus Christ. Follow Him until the very, very end or you will perish.
May Jesus bless you.
