Christ Ahnsahnghong Taught True Salvation

Some people claim that since the Bible says that we are saved by grace, then we don't need to do anything but believe Jesus. Believing this they force the following verse:

Rom. 10:9 "
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

Such people continue to believe that as long as Jesus Christ is accepted as their "personal" Lord and savior, they will be saved. DO YOU THINK GOD IS STUPID?! That's exactly why people are leaving the church. Even in the church people do whatever they want throughout the week, but show up for service because they have faith in Christ.
If it were just a matter of believing, the following verse would not be valid:

Matt. 7:21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven."

I've never heard a Buddhist person or Muslim person call Jesus as Lord, have you? This verse is referring to believers, those with faith in Christ. Then is faith enough? No, obviously action is required along with it. Don't automatically think about charities and giving to the "needy" since this is man's righteousness. According to God what must we do together with faith?

John 13:15 "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you."

Jesus Himself set us an example of what to do. Actually, we must look at Jesus Christ's actions to know the will of God, then we can do it. Among many things He did, He kept God's commandments:
Sabbath (Luke 4:16-17); Passover/Unleavened Bread (Matt. 26:17-19, 26-28); Feast of First Fruits, or Resurrection (Acts 20:5-7, 1 Cor. 11:1) Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4) and the Feasts for Tabernacles (John 7:2, 14, 37-39).

Looking at what Christ did when He was on this earth, how much can we say we followed Him? If we truly believe in Christ we will do as He did. He even said:
Luke 6:46 "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?"

What do you think? What is the true way of salvation? How can anyone blame Christ Ahnsahnghong for keeping what Jesus taught the first time?
