Salvation is by faith only or by faith and good works

Salvation is just by faith, or by faith and good works

Question: 'is Salvation by faith only or by faith and good works.' This is probably the most important questions in all of the studies about God and ChristianityThis question became the cause of the reformation - the schism of the Protestant and the Catholic Church. The answer also to this question the key to distinguish Biblical Christianity and the cults or heresies of Christianity. Am I saved just by faith in Jesus, or do I need to believe in Jesus and yet make some thing to absolutely be saved. The answer to the question whether by faith alone or by faith and good works achieve salvation is much more pinahirap of some verses in the Bible that seem difficult to harmonize.

Looks they only the same topic in different perspective

If I compare Romans: twenty-eight and Galatians: twenty-four in Santiago, he seems to be a difference in the teaching of Paul (Salvation by faith) and in the teaching of James (Salvation is by faith and works). The true, not contradictory to the teaching of Paul and James. The point of dispute that some suppose is the relationship between faith and works.

Stable the affirmation of Paul that salvation is just by faith while appearing on argument of James that salvation is by faith with the accompanying works.

This problem has been answered through a thorough study in what is really the meaning of James. Refuted by Santiago believing a person has faith but no one is ibinubungang good deeds. Emphasizing only of James the reasoning that the true faith in Christ is productive of new life and good works. Not saying James that salvation is by faith and works, rather if a person is truly safe, you certainly will see the good works in his life. If a person will claim that he is a believer, but no one is good works seen in his life - can't have her true faith in jesus Christ. The good fruits that should be seen in the life of a believer is written in Galatians. After he say that we are saved by faith and not by works, we are informed by Paul that we are creatures to make good. Also hoping Paul like James that there are changes occurred in our lives, “So long as anyone who are in Christ are one without a new creature. None of the former personality, he was before that” Not contradictory to the teachings of Paul and James regarding salvation. Emphasized only Paul that salvation is just by faith as emphasized in turn by James the fact that faith in Christ is certainly that yields good works.
