    No kidding, and particularly in light of him having declared himself irrelevant.

    The Bible refers to being saved as receiving a favorable standing with the “Lord” ...but it also makes clear that no one is saved until the end...whether it is the end of his life or the end of this world as we know it, if he remains faithful..."But the one who has endured to the end will be saved." Matthew 24:13

    The thought of "once saved, always saved" is not supported by Scripture...
    “Truth, like a modest little flower in the wilderness of life, is surrounded and almost choked by the luxuriant growth of the weeds of error. If you would find it you must be ever on the lookout...If you would possess it you must stoop to get it. Be not content with one flower of truth...Gather ever, seek for more.” 1879 Watchtower

    Being saved just means that you have accepted Jesus as your personal savior and that is the only way to heaven.
    Couldn't that also be defined as a Christian?

    It is a fairly strange concept. The idea is that people are born with original sin in their souls. Adam and Eve committed the original sin and, apparently, it haunts humanity to this day. Salvation is salvation from Hell by the forgiveness of original sin. In most christian religions, the sin is forgiven through the act of baptism. That may be a simplistic description of the concept but I think it applies to most christian sects.

    Everyone who dies goes to hell...Job prayed to go to hell or the grave...Job 14:13-15...Jesus was in hell...Acts 2:31...
