Come on Edwin. God is NOT the author of confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33.
Are you not trying to put Christians under a "work salvation"?
Our flesh cannot please God. Romans 3:20 "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall be no flesh justified in his sight:for the law is the knowledge of sin"
Romans 4:5 "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness"  Yes this means we are made PERFECT by HIS BLOOD. All of us. Spirit and soul go to be with Lord at death. Our body is changed and connects back to the spirit and soul at rapture
I really wish Christians would stop confusing God's Word. We are in the time of the Gentiles or the Time of Grace. Thank God we are so we do not have to go through his Wrath.
It used to be that we as a church tried to put a "yoke" on the new born Christian and tell him if he did not do "good" he is probably not a Christians. Now a lot of Christians are trying to put another "yoke" by saying if you are not as good as me you will not be raptured. Come on guys. The watchers will be rewarded for watching but the ones not watching will still be raptured because they are counted as righteous.
Thank for listening
