However, who am I to say that? They may actually have good reasons (of their own) to think that. Anyway, if someone has reasons to believe in something that are beyond an excuse to have a low set of standards, then I am eager to hear what they think.
But some do actually seem to think that salvation by grace, and they might be right, but I really have a hard time dealing with people who just think that they have 0 responsibility and Jesus will save them no matter what. But they might be the only ones that are right! Haha
