Regarding your description of the Mennonite viewpoint, and the once saved-always saved, regardless of what they do in life, I am somewhere in between those two viewpoints. When I was a little girl, my mother told me that she would always love me, and that there was nothing that I could ever do in life that would stop her from loving me. Even so, I didn’t see this as a reason to be disobedient to our family rules, knowing that I would be forgiven and loved no matter what. Actually, it probably made me try even harder to please my parents and to show them how much I loved them, too. I see my relationship with God in about the same way. The Bible tells me that Jesus loves me, and i am sure that means that his love is as unconditional as my earthly parents’ love. So, I have always believed that , as part of God’s family, I would always be part of that family and I trust in his will for my life, and for Heaven. I don’t think that gives me license to just go out and live an ungodly life, and do anything I wanted to, even if it was against God’s teachings in the Bible. Rather, I think that it means that I need to show myself as a worthwhile member of God’s family, and do my best to follow the rules set forth in the Bible. The main requirement that I see is that we are to love God with all of our heart, and if we do that one thing, then doing our best to follow the rest of the requirements is what follows naturally. I am a long ways from being a perfect person, or Christian, but the Bible says that God looks at man’s heart, and when he looks at mine, he can see that I am doing my best, however fallible that might be.
