    BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED acts 16:31. lf salvation is a gift Ephesians 2: 8,9 ?Why would you believe a moral religious person above Holy Scripture? God Almighty crucified His only begotten Son for you and me. Why would He require 600 commandments for you to kept in order for to get to Him in Heaven? Repent of what you are a sinner hoping to make Heaven by works
  • Rusu Elisei on Acts 16
    You are saved by grace alone not by works. The works you do after salvation you do for your own good and for a reward in heaven, not for your salvation of soul. Now you don't keep the commandments in order to get to Him in Heaven, you keep them because now you know that they are the word of God and they are for your own good. If you don't keep them He will punish you but not send you to hell.
  • Adam on Acts 16
    Grace vs works is a very common debate. James 2:14-26 and others show that works are important, likely beyond just a reward in heaven. It calls your faith 'dead' without works. There are no scriptures saying that people with no faith or dead faith enter heaven. Most people will go to hell wide is the gate . Christians who denounce Christ or commit blasphemy surely should be concerned.

    Isn't it for the Jews?Who must have faith works for salvation?We christians must have only faith for salvation of our soul. All Paul epistles to the church except the one for Hebrews which is for the jews reflect that. For example, in 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 it is talked about a brother who committed a very great sin which is incest but the flesh was destructed by Satan and his soul was still saved.

    Part of walking in grace is loving others, avoiding sin Romans 12:2 not falsely assuming you have a license to sin. Satan wants people to think they don't have to live as a Christian, don't have to try. Unfortunately Christians can buy into the lie, even denounce Jesus, based on a false assumption that they're already saved and can do whatever they want. Satan wants people to ignore James 2:14-26.
  • Rusu Elisei on Acts 16
    The book of James is directed for Jews.How about 2 Timothy 2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself." And the incest case from 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 who is a obvious case of not walking in grace and still saved? All pauline epistles show only faith for salvation.

    Hello, this is a very predictable disagreement and will never change my mind, because the Bible doesn't change. The book of James is not just for Jews- it applies to everyone. Those who ignore God's word are subject to God's judgment. If someone wants an excuse to sin they do so at their own risk. Satan wants you to sin and God doesn't. If trying to do what's right didn't matter then Jesus wouldn't have said to be perfect or to do not conform to this world, etc. It's black and white in the Bible and that will never change.
