Why can't people understand Ephesians 2:8 "IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD" who saves and not grace through faith?
I CORINTHIANS 12:9 LISTS "FAITH" AS A "SPIRITUAL GIFT" ONE DOESN'T RECEIVE UNTIL AFTER HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM (I CORINTHIANS 12:13). THEREFORE NO ONE HAS FAITH UNTIL AFTER HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM.
ROMANS 5:1-2 SAYS
"THEREFORE BEING JUSTIFIED BY [THAT] *FAITH* WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. BY WHOM ALSO WE >>>HAVE ***ACCESS*** INTO THIS GRACE..."
THEREFORE WE DON'T "HAVE ***ACCESS*** INTO THIS GRACE" WITHOUT [THAT] *FAITH* THAT'S A "SPIRITUAL GIFT" RECEIVED AFTER HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM.
SO HOW CAN ONE BE SAVED "BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH" (EPHESIANS 2:8) WHEN ONE ***DOES NOT*** HAVE THE "SPIRITUAL GIFT" OF *FAITH* TO GAIN ***ACCESS*** INTO GRACE?

The gift of God is eternal life / salvation. (Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8). It is given to us by grace through faith when we obey Him.
"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him." (John 3:36)
"And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him," ( Hebrews 5:9)

All verses are inspired by God. Therefore those who pick and choose which verses they will believe in and which ones they ignore, are not right with God. ONLY when ALL verses agree with what you believe will you arrive at the Truth. Which only a few will find.
