The “Exists” list:
NOTE: I believe that God uses the example of children because of their natural disposition to faithing.
Salvation and eternal life are real. God is the one and only source of righteousness and delegates its dispensation and the dispensation of eternal life to Jesus. Our faithing brings the Spirit into our bodies and overcomes death. Some will be lost through denial and willful ignorance. God’s power, through Jesus’ actions is able to save us. God loves and assigns children angels.
