Nicodemus' experience with Jesus gives a clear explanation of all it takes to enter God's kingdom, i.e., born of water and of Spirit (Jn 3:1-21).
Salvation translates any individual into God's kingdom, which is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit (Rom 14:17).
God's kingdom is already in expression because christians already have Christ as our Righteousness (1Cor 1:30, 2Cor 5:21), Christ is our Peace (Eph 2:14); we have Peace beyond all understanding (Phil 4:7) and Joy flowing from the rivers of living water within us (Rom 15:13, Jn 7:38).
We are already enjoying God's kingdom here on earth and hereafter, we will be in the kindgom of heaven, which is our home (Jn 14:3).
So, all it takes is to confess with the mouth, our Lord Jesus and believe with the heart that Jesus was raised from the dead. And, the person is saved and already in God's kingdom because Christ paid the price for Redemption (Jn 19:30, Heb 10:16-20). ...
Salvation is obtained by confessing Jesus with the mouth and believing in the heart that Christ died for your sins and resurrected.
No where in Scripture was anyone required to confess his/her sins before obtaining salvation. It is a wrong doctrine that originated from "God-knows-where". How many sins can the individual remember and confess at the spot before obtaining salvation? Sounds somehow.
Rom 10:9 - "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
verse 10 - "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
And on and on. ...
