Well, if you read the scriptures, in it's entirety, you'll find that you are saved by your Faith that God, through his Grace, supplied the ultimate s...acrifice, for our sins. Out of that Faith, works manifest. You do works, as a result of your Faith in God's Grace, not the other way around. Works are evidence of your Faith in God's Grace.
So, why is the belief, in Salvation through Works, so dangerous? Because, it takes away what God did, for us, through Y'shua, Jesus, on the cross. It equates man's works with God's Works. It diminishes God's Grace. What is it about our psyche, that makes us think we can do what only God can do? Bottom line: If you can save yourself, through works, that means, that you can walk right up and sit on the throne, next to God and say, "See, there's two of us, now."
You see, God has reserved a Remnant, in every generation, for his own. Are you of the Remnant of God? How does your beliefs line up with God's Word? I challenge you to read the Bible, for yourself. Allow God to teach you his Truth, as promised in John 16:12-15 and always check what you are taught, with the Bible. Acts 17:11.
...and that's what you'll find, When You Search For The Truth.
