Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. How about the people in dire situations? Titanic for example. How many of those cried out to God? I am sure they were sincere but was it just because they knew they were about to die? If rescued how many would continue to seek God or return to their old life after disaster is avoided. Isn't true conversion life changing?
