regarding
THE BALANCE BETWEEN
FAITH AND WORKS.

Q. 1. How do you explain in simple terms the relationship between faith and works in salvation?

A. 1. In simple words, the Bible is clear on a number of conditions that are absolutely necessary for the manifestation of faith and works in salvation. These are:

- Faith is the first condition that must be present. [Heb. 10:38, 11:6]

- Good works plays a saving role in the lives of the believers. [1 Pet. 2:12; Rev. 2:2; Mt. 5:16, 16:27, 25:34-36]

- Faith and the expression of goods works must coexist, good works being the fruit of faith. [Jas. 2:14-18, 2:20-22; 1 Cor. 3:8, 15:58; Heb. 6:10; Mt 16:27; Col. 3:23-24]

- No one is saved by faith alone. Faith without good works is dead. A person is justified by the fruits (good works) of faith. [Jas. 2:24; 2:26]

- No one is saved by goods works alone. The good works must be the fruits of faith. [Rom. 9:31-32; Gal 3:11]

- Salvation is a gift of God. Faith has a primary role in that salvation. [Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 6:1, 9:14; 2 Tim. 1:9; Titus 3:4-5; Rom. 3:27-28; Gal 2:16]

And that is how in simple words we are saved through Christ as a gift of God because of our faith and good works.
