Okay, I am going out on a limb and hope it starts a conversation and not a conflict.   I have heard and read about salvation. There is salvation through Grace alone, there is Salvation through Faith alone and there is Salvation through both Faith and Grace.   All of the reformers appear, to the best research I can do, to base their salvation theoryís on Augustine's writings on Paul or from Paulís writings alone.

I struggle with this.  You see, I have no idea what God will ultimately do.  I am not one to assume based on 2000 years old inspired writings nor presume they still apply as originally intended since they were not intended for humanity to become what it has.  That is my internal battle.   

As I see it, no one, absolutely no one can speak for or to what God will do with or to us as our spirit/soul passes on.   We have all made assumptions on the importance of Grace and Faith.  We even make assumptions and arguments on what each of those means.  So in deep reflection and prayer, I came to the only answer I can come to and works for me and how I understand all of this.
Live your life in such a way that you leave no doubt to God your holiness, grace, and faith is/was according to his word.   That way you remove worry about how others interpret and the argument over salvation because of grace and/or faith.    I have always believed life is to be lived for Godís glory, not for someone elseís determination of what Godís glory and love is.  You know inside if you are doing this.  So do it: Live your life for God.
Excellent. As I read this I was following and my mind went back to 2nd grade at St. George. I used to argue for once saved always saved but that defies common sense actually. I now believe salvation is a process and enduring with obedience is key. Keeping the faith and not being shaken from the glorious gospel of Christ.

So, one might say well it is a lifelong process. . . .  But what of those whose lives are cut short? I agree with you that we can't say definitively what God will do with each and every person/soul on an individual basis. I believe God must examine each of us as He does throughout our lives, and that each person's Judgement is unique and detailed. The Holy Bible is a book of details, after all.

God can easily place us all one by one at the Judgement Seat Of Christ and in an instant He knows every detail of ever thought and action and motivation, every idle thought and hurtful word and every good thing as well. I realized this at the age of seven and I had a question for the priests and nuns.

I concluded that every person is different and must be judged according to their own thoughts, words and actions because I knew that God knows all things back then. At that young age I decided that there must be counter that God uses so naturally I wanted to know exactly how many sins gets you to hell !!!

I thought well, I just need to stay under that ultimate number of sins that sends a person to hell.  ;D :D Kids, I tell ya. I was on to something though.
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
