It would be awfully nice to "know" that you're saved. A lot of Christians believe that you're saved if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior -- and in a sense that's true. If you REALLY accept Jesus Christ, and you live the way he told us to - shunning evils, loving the Lord, and loving the neighbor - then you're opening yourself to receive his love.
Covenant, Reciprocation, and Conjunction are three parts of the process of our spiritual rebirth.
The "as-of-self" is a key doctrinal concept in New Christian theology.
The Bible states clearly that it is the way a person lives, not just what he believes, that determines whether he goes to heaven or not. Jesus said, "Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." (Matthew 7:21)
