A faith plus works salvation standard always subtracts…
“Some men came down from Judea and began teaching the brethren, ‘Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.’ / ‘But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are (Acts 15:1, 11 NAS).”
If we add works to faith, in order to receive salvation, we err from scripture.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9 NAS).”
One thought on “FAITH PLUS”
This is so true. Even today folks try to add “works” into that free grace-given gift.
