7" Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."


****************************************


Good works will always accompany a genuine repentance and faith in Christ.


But it is God who determines what is good......not man.


The JW think that they are doing good works by going door to door and handing out their magazines.


So this is something that has to be viewed as good by God.


Those who are born again by the Holy Spirit.....are immediately indwelt by the Holy Spirit.....and connected with God.


The Holy Spirit then directs the person and gives him the power to work on things which bring him closer to God.....and also to do various other things according to His will.....and viewed by Him as good.


Perhaps a individual gets stressed out too much. The Holy Spirit will bring this to his attention and help that person work on this.


There is nothing good about us. The first sin killed us....when we were about 8 or 9 years of age. This would involve knowing God's commandments....understanding them......and then deliberately going out and breaking one of them. Perhaps the child told a fib....or perhaps stole some change. The first sin kills you......God is holy. This separates you from God.


Hence Christ said that you must be born again.


As Paul said.....there is evil in his flesh....sin residing there.....and that his flesh was in fact dead because of sin. However he received new life in Christ.


The good works are inspired by the Holy Spirit......and are referred to in Scripture as the "fruit of the Spirit."

Paul NEVER preached "Sola Fide", this is Martin Luther's gem, he came up with it 15 centuries later. And another lie
of Martin Luther, his heresy of man is completely depraved.

No true. Humanity has a fallen nature AND we are capable of
good. flower

Does Saint Paul have his own "Not by Faith Alone" verse? ohyeah

In Romans 10:9-10 (NKJV) we read:


If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness*, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Plainly read: to be "saved" you must "confess" and "believe". Obviously, "salvation by faith alone" is ruled out here. But surely there is a Protestant answer to this, for now it appears Saint Paul has his own "Not By Faith Alone" verse (since we already know Saint James has his own)!
