    There is true saving faith, and their is belief (dead faith) dead faith is no faith at all. That why the people were never saved, and why they never did any work (hearers not doers)

    If you don't believe in true love then please don't tell me not to believe in it because I believe it to be real.
    I'm a self proclaimed troll tracker.
    I am hopeless...thankfully though Jesus's grace is sufficient for my weakness.
    I have a tendency to speak through the spirit if you can't handle that get some ear plugs.

    I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.

    Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

    Man must choose to believe in Christ, yet do you view believing as just "another" work, like works that are produced "out of" faith?

    James is referring to one's individual faith. One's individual faith must be demonstrated through obedience.

    Paul says that the faith that justifies the body of Christ is not our own, but the faith of Jesus Christ. The faith of Jesus Christ was demonstrated through His perfect obedience unto the Father even unto death, the death of the cross.

    Who said anything about establishing faith? I sure didn't. Obedience is the working of faith.

    here is the second disconnect, saying it MUST be demonstrated by obedience.

    True faith works, there is no MUST about it, if the byproduct of faith is not present, it can be assumed the faith was never present either.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. The contortions you work-phobic guys go through to avoid having to admit that we have to obey GOD is amazing.

    How can a person claim to have Faith, if they don't claim to have Faith?

    Why don't you try something new. Why don't you look at the scriptures I posted and explain to everyone where I am mistaken, where I am twisting them as you accuse.

    In this way, you are not just accusing and insulting others for no cause, rather, you are letting the Word of God show me where I am looking at the scripture wrong. Both loving your neighbor by helping them, and Loving God by letting His Word, not your religious traditions, correct me.

    This way you could actually practice what you preach for the edification of all involved.

    Absolutely! True faith is demonstrated by works, being obedient to God's word in what He would have you to do.

    But what's important to understand is that we are not justified by our faith, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. The faith of Jesus Christ justifies! He is the just and the justifier of them that believe. The only work necessary for eternal salvation is believing the gospel of Jesus Christ. A

    fter salvation is come by believing, the Christian begins to live out their new found faith through a life of obedience. Some Christians will have very little faith, thus very little obedience. Some have stronger faith, thus their life will demonstrate it. Our individual works will be tested by fire at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Rewards and inheritance is at stake, not salvation.

    The contortion you grace-Phobic guys go through to puff up your works is quite amazing.

    true faith WILL work, there is no MUST or HAVE TO about it, but you must puff yourself up, so you refuse to see it, its called religion, it sounds good, it appears right, but remember, as scripture. Says here are ways which seem right to mankind, but in the end it leads to death

    Claimed faith and true faith are not the same, i do not go around claiming i have faith, i let my actions speak.

    why don’t you stop listening to whoever made up the stuff you have been trying to preach and look at the word?

    and ps, you have been shown by so many people where you got it wrong, your strawman that people need to show you lost its power months ago,

    Are you denying the faith of Jesus Christ?

    You can depend on your own faith to justify you. I am solely depending on the faith of Jesus Christ.

    work is not a sin, trying to replace gods righteousness with your to earn ot maintain salvation is. This kind of nonsense got you in trouble before it is obvious you have not changed one bit.

    read hebrews 11, you not only will see what true faith is (the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen) but you will see the faith hall of fame of many men and women of faith who did not boast of faith, or maintianing their salvation, 5ey lived their faith, and in the end, earned their reward (not salvation, which was a gift)

    God's righteousness is by the faith of Jesus Christ.

    Romans 321 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
    22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

    How does one receive the righteousness of God? Upon believing the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ is His testimony on how He died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again.

    The faith of Jesus Christ is such a precious doctrine and foundation, an immoveable Rock! No wonder Satan tries to erase it from the Bible. The faith of Jesus Christ refers to His perfect integrity, His spotless life, His perfect obedience unto His Father.
