I agree with that but here's my question:  What would be the destiny of any 
who do reject their salvation?  Will they go to heaven if they die still 
rejecting salvation (although suffer loss of reward) or will they have put 
themselves in the same position as an unbeliever (one who has rejected 
Christ) and go to hell?
