Faith Alone vs. Faith plus works of God
Lately, I’ve heard a lot of talk regarding faith, the works of God and the works of man coming from the —Salvation by Faith Alone crowd.
Before I go on I would like to define —Salvation by Faith Alone.
“Any work or effort, done by anyone to reach God or to attain a relationship with Him, is completely without merit and unable to satisfy any requirement necessary for a relationship with God at all. Said efforts will leave one devoid of God and not in a relationship with Him at all and this being no matter how one thinks or feels. Therefore, absolutely nothing a person can do within and by one’s own ability can be of use to attain God.”
This doctrine is primarily derived from two verses.
