Who had faith and who had works?
The False Teaching:Those who followed the Way of the Spirit, relied on their faith in the Spirit of Christ for salvation from torment in Hades. Those who followed the Way of the Flesh, relied on their works of the Law for salvation from torment in Hades and salvation from the Day of Destruction.
New Testament Response:Those who had faith in Christ would be saved in both ways and that both faith and works have a role in the Christian life.
Yes, a man will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith.
