Hello, This is a topic that is very confusing to me and hard to wrap my head around. This is a topic that everyone has different answers on. If you google this, you'll find websites with people telling you "pray this prayer and you'll be saved!" or repent. I used to spend my time a couple of years ago praying prayers like that, and guess what? Nothing happened. I just thought if I prayed this prayer I be in the clear and my life would change but nothing did. If you google this on youtube,you get the same results. No one tells you anything. They just say pray this and pray that. Or something about God's grace. I'm now starting to read the Bible which is something I given up for a very long time. I read somewhere in Mathews that you need fruit to prove repentance. Does repentance come first before being saved? I'm sorry if I come off offensive but this a topic I never understood thus it frustrates me because when I attempt to learn, everyone will tell you something different, and you end up confuse. No one ever told me you had to change your lifestyle to be saved. It was always, just pray this and you'll be good. I'm genuinely trying to learn what salvation actually is but it frustrates me when each answer is different depending on the person. I never got "its by God's grace". So does that mean I can live any way I want and just wait on God to change my life because that is the impression I been getting for years by people who tell you to pray specific prayers and never tell you anything else.
