What is a works slavationist? I have seen this term but not sure I understand the meaning?
A works salvationist.. And there are plenty of them on this website will keep on preaching that we all MUST stop sinning.. When ever you read that MUST do this or MUST do that in reference to sinning you can pretty much be assured that you have a works salvationist preacher on your hands..
Of course sinning is not good and we should resist it as much as we are able.. Doing good works is also good and we should do good works when we see a good work needs doing.. But our performance in resisting sin or doing good works does not play a part in us being saved.. Our salvation is 100% dependent on what we believe and in what we trust.. We MUST believe Jesus and we MUST trust that the Atonement He secured by dying on the cross secures for us forgiveness of all our sins and wins for us eternal life in Gods perfect existence..
Once a person starts mixing in their works into the mix of what saves them they are no longer in the state of salvation..
Now there is Biblical support for our works performance gaining for us greater reward in eternity.. Some will be greater in the kingdom of heaven and some will be lesser in the kingdom of Heaven.. We are told to build up treasure in Heaven i believe that treasure consists of our love for God and love for others and our good works part of that is preaching about the importance of resisting sin and doing good works.. But once a person steps over the line and says we MUST stop sinning to be saved they are preaching a false doctrine..
