Followers of Paul say grace is UNCONDITIONAL. You can’t do anything to merit salvation. It is a gift from God. You don’t have to do anything on your part aside from having faith, and any attempt to do so is blasphemy. According to paulinists, to preach that there is something that you must do to be saved, aside from relying on faith, is blasphemy. We cannot be saved by works or anything we do. Paul’s salvation message is much more simpler and user-friendly. One only needs to believe and confess that Jesus is Lord to be saved (See Ephesians 2:8-9, 2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 3:5, Romans 10:9-10).

Ephesians 2:8-9
8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Titus 3:5
5Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
