May the Lord Jesus give you strength and peace as you manage your pain, providing you the grace each day that you need to experience His love and joy.
I agree with you and believe Ravi would as well. If we look at Romans 10, we see in the verses immediately following verse 10 that Paul was not giving us two conditions for salvation. Even in this very same chapter, Paul makes it clear that all who call upon the name of Jesus are saved—regardless of whether or not they are able to confess with their mouth. Faith is the only prerequisite for salvation. That is a major theme of the entire book of Galatians.
Romans 10:10-15 - For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 17:3 - Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
Galatians 2:15-21 - We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.
