Title: Justification by 'getting it right'
Post by: Stan on January 09, 2016, 09:54:22 AM
Justification by works isn't a problem, I have never really met anyone that believed that, many said they did 10 years, and will more than likely say that 10 years from now..

Justification by getting things right, you know pre-trib post trib etc etc  seems to be the trend.

When people talk about Wheat vs Tares, they tend to imply they are the Wheat...  just because they read the parable.

According to the Scriptures, good works are expected of us AFTER we have become born again Christians, as seen in the following:

6 "And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
