comment Does believing in Jesus Christ save me, or do I have to do something more?
Judah and @Narnian: Please note neither answers nor comments are a place to debate theological points or have answer/rebuttal style discussions. Please take those kind of exchanges to Christianity Chat.

comment What is the biblical basis for the doctrine of the loss of salvation?
@BruceAlderman: So would the valid question here be "What sort of things is salvation believed to be by those who don't believe it can be secured?"

comment What is the biblical basis for the doctrine of the loss of salvation?
You are right this is often used, but just by itself this is a weak defense. This verse is easily interpreted quite differently (not referring to salvation) inside a theological framework that has people as part of visible churches without being members of the invisible Church.

comment Can a Christian choose to walk away from his or her salvation?
No matter how much variation exists in the pews and in practice, almost all denominations (except for denominations of "independent" churches) have some doctrinal statements and structure by which these statements are applied to the whole. Entire denominations can and do take stands on single issues. And in the case of NPP, they have.

comment What is an overview of beliefs on how one can lose salvation?
I disagree with the idea that this is a duplicate of the question @warren linked. It's the same topic, but this question is framed quite differently. Frankly I think this question is framed in a constructive way that fits our site format, the other one probably ought to be closed as NC since it is a truth question more than something about Christianity.

comment Why did foot washing become a common practice in Christianity?
You've pointed out related scriptures but you haven't touched the historical or traditional aspect of this question. No amount of exegesis will make an answer here.
