8.       Recognize there are indeed some sins greater than others. (John 19:11)


9.       Believe “little” sins are more “forgivable.”

10.    Say “Once saved, always saved.”

10.    Say “Holy Spirit is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance” and “No one can snatch [me] out of My Father’s hand.” (Ephesians 1:14; John 10:29)
