What is the true meaning of the doctrine 'salvation of God or eternal life is a gift'? Is the gift of God unconditional or is it a quid pro quo?
Romans 6:23 ASV
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Ephesians 2:8 ASV
for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
2 Timothy 1:6 ASV
For which cause I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee through the laying on of my hands.
Does the gift of God, grace or salvation or eternal life or the Holy Spirit, require us to get our acts together with God since it is a gift?
