    What more than "Believe with you heart confess with your lips" para --- Rom 10:9

    Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

    What more is required of us, in a DISPENSATION of Grace?

    The New Testament contains numerous requirements that must be met before salvation is granted.An example comes from   this seldom read verse in  John Chapter 6 that refers to the necessity of participating in Holy Communion ceremonies:Verse 53 "Jesus answered:  I tell you for certain that you won't live unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man."

    Tragically some ministers try to deceive the members of their churches by telling them that salvation comes through only repeating a 10 word "sinner's prayer",regardless of what state of sobriety they may be in at the time.

    ALL verses in the New Testament must be read to gain a full understanding of Christianity.Pulling 25 words in two verses in one chapter of one book  which contain words from a man who was not one of Jesus' Disciples  which occurs in Romans 10:9,obviously won't do you much good unless you're interested in the most shallow and superficial  view of the faith.

    The most common and at the same time  outrageous example of verse skimming occurs when people quote John 3:16 as the verse containing the only instruction necessary to obtain salvation.Unfortunately to find verse 16 they have  to skim over the essential verses 3-7 which totally modify verse 16 because they specify the two types of baptisms that Jesus taught are requirements for salvation.

    John 3:3-7 (New King James Version)

    3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
    4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
    5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’

    Absolutely nothing!
    You are saved by the grace of God. He is doing the work of filling you up with Jesus, through His Spirit and the Word, and He requires nothing more of you as you learn to love Him more.
    Keep looking up in the face of Jesus.

    Puregrace is right, absolutely nothing else is required.  In Romans 3:28 it says "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."  Ephesians 2:8-9 says "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

    Belief plus anything is not salvation, faith alone is required for salvation.

    Salvation, what is it? Do we need it? How de we get it? In the Epistle to the Romans Paul talks extensively about salvation. His first mention of it is in 1:16 where we learn that the gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation to every one... read more

    The Gospel of John is the favourite gospel for explaining salvation. Very early in the book the idea of belief for salvation is presented. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on... read more
