Cause and Effect

CAUSE of Salvation = Faith Alone
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
– Ephesians 2:8-9

EFFECT of Salvation = Works
“Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. But someone may well say, “You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”
– James 2:17-18

Works are only necessary as an evidence of faith. But the only requirement for salvation is faith. Once you put Works into the CAUSE category, you have a false gospel, of which Paul says…

“… even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!”
– Galatians 1:8

The difference between CAUSE and EFFECT in the matter of salvation is of eternal significance.

One thought on “Cause and Effect

  1. Faith Alone is a preconceive ideaand they are stock only i this one dimentional teaching w/c is not the only teaching of the apostle it is not even written .what is written is James 2:24-25 Ye see then how that BY WORKS A MAN IS JUSTIFIED and NOT BY FAITH ONLY… Rahab d harlot JUSTIFIED BY WORKS what is written is not by faith only not faith alone, Even Paul doesnt believe in Faith alone that why u cant read is ,Paul also teach us in 1Cor 13: 2 “and though I have the Gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and THOUGH I HAVE ALL FAITH,
    so i can move mountains, AND HAVE NOT CHARITY, I’am NOTHING” charity is good works he has ALL Faith but if i have NO charity i’m nothing as u said nothing is nothing.
    Rev 22:12 Behold My, I come quickly, and my Reward(Grace/Salvation) is with me, to give every man according to his work.same as written in Mat. 16:27 he shall reward Man accordng to his works… what reward is it? its Grace can they denied it verse by verse non of them have done it, they rather walk away in silence than facing the truth n continue to mislead others, coz they cant deny Jesus will come carrying reward and punishment some will get reward and some will get punishment and what is the basis of his reward accroding to the verse, can u answer it? is it according to faith or works?…
