Can someone be saved if they don't keep the Ten Commandments?

Scripture: Hebrews 10:26
Can someone be saved if they don't keep the Ten Commandments, including the Sabbath? We are not saved by works, but if we willingly disobey, the Bible teaches "there remains no sacrifice for sin."

Can somebody be truly saved if they don't keep the Ten Commandments?

Can a person be saved without keeping the Ten Commandments? The answer is yes. Of course, there are going to be many people saved, and no one is saved by keeping any law. We are saved by grace alone.

However, at the same time, nobody will be saved who willingly disobeys. The Bible says, "If we continue to sin willfully after we know the truth, then there is no sacrifice for sins" Hebrew 10:26. So at that point it is open rebellion against God. And how can God accept that into heaven?
