Typically in Western Protestant thought, you are saved *in order* to have a relationship with God. With this assumption, Rachel's question is a tough one to answer.
In Orthodoxy the relationship *is* salvation itself. Thus, to our ears the idea of perpetually refusing to repent and be healed of one's passions is de facto a refusal of salvation since repentance is, in a sense, salvation itself.
(Check out John's blog where he has been posting excellent excerpts from Bishop Ware's book "How are we Saved? The Understanding of Salvation in the Orthodox Tradition.")
