Faith + Obedience = Salvation?

If it takes faith plus obedience in order to be saved then what level of obedience is required?

In other words, what must a believer do in order to inherit eternal life according to his obedience? Is he just supposed to do the best that he can do to live a moral life? In my case I know that I have not always done my best to live that kind of a life so am I disqualified from ever attaining the eternal life which is in Christ Jesus?

Ro 4:8

I never said that Christians do not have the responsibility to obey God.

Justification and sanctification are two different things (Jas 2:20). Everyone has faith. The type of faith they have? That's a different story altogether.

Tell me what level of obedience must a believer have in order to receive His Spirit.

Are you a lawbreaker? If you are, then you are still under the law (1 Ti 1:9). Our law is higher.

Justification and sanctified are the same, they happen the same time for the same reason.

You plan to clean yourself up before you come to the Lord? He'll be here before then.

Since salvation is by grace through faith...

You sure? Because you keep asking the same question? Eph 2:8-9

[As a reminder God's Truth is number 39 on Satan, Inc. (TOL Heretics list) in "The 'Jesus is not God' people (Non-trinitarians) category. ] The message that saves is sent for those who fear God and do right.

You don't do right and you've never done a good thing (Ro 8:8). You're not in Christ (2 Pe 2:1).

You're not "the brethren" sister (2 Pe 2:1).

Yes, we are supposed to repent of our sinful lifestyle.

When is that going to happen? Mt 3:8, Ac 8:22

[To another member] First you say that salvation is by grace through faith. And then you say that only those who obey Him receive his Spirit. Please answer Paul's question here:

"This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?" (Gal.3:2-3).

Justification and sanctification are two different things. Get yourself a Savior (Rom. 3:26, 27).

...[I]f someone truly believes he will not live however he wants to live but instead in the way which the Lord wants him to live.

How is it that you want to [your words] live? Luke 15:11–32
