The passages of scripture which made me give up on "once saved always saved" and "faith alone"

Saved by fear:

[Josh 2:9, 12-14] and (Rahab) said to the men, "I know that the LORD has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away before you.12 "Now therefore, please swear to me by the LORD, since I have dealt kindly with you, that you also will deal kindly with my father's household, and give me a pledge of truth,13 and spare my father and my mother and my brothers and my sisters, with all who belong to them, and deliver our lives from death."14 So the men said to her, "Our life for yours if you do not tell this business of ours; and it shall come about when the LORD gives us the land that we will deal kindly and faithfully with you."

Saved by hope:

[Pss 146:5.12] Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
[Lamentations 3:24]"The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I have hope in Him."

Saved by trust:

[Jer 39:18.5] For I will surely save you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but you shall have your life as a prize of war, because you have put your trust in me, says the LORD."

Saved by seeking:

[2Chr 30:18] For a multitude of the people, many of them from Ephraim, Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet they ate the passover otherwise than as prescribed. For Hezekiah had prayed for them, saying, "The good LORD pardon every one 19 who sets his heart to seek God, the LORD the God of his fathers, even though not according to the sanctuary's rules of cleanness." 20 And the LORD heard Hezekiah, and healed the people.

Saved by giving alms:

[Luke 11:41] But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

Saved by confession:

[Luke 18:13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Saved by love:

[Luke 7:47] Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little."

Saved by baptism:

[1Pet 3:21] Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

Saved by conviction:

[2Cor 7:10] For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation and brings no regret, but worldly grief produces death.

Saved by keeping the commandments:

[Mat 19:17] And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments."

Saved by the prayer of others:

[Jas 5:15.27] and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Saved by forgiving:

[Mark 11:25] And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses."

Saved by the washing of feet:

[John 13] 10Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you."

Who Is A True Member Of The Church And The Body Of Christ:

[Revelation 12:17] So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.

Praise God Forever!
