    Is "Faith" alone enough to be Saved ?

    Is "Faith" alone enough to be Saved ?

    Faith without measure is enough for salvation. Anything less is conditional.

    Yep

    For by grace you have been saved through faith.
    And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

    (Eph. 2:8-9)

    Well, it is completely conditional on repentance.
    I know what I know
    I know what I don't know
    I don't know what I don't know.

    Of course it is, but defining 'faith' is a topic often debated.

    Repentance is unconditional with Faith without measure.

    You cannot define Faith. it defines you.

    Jas_2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

    Jas_2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

    Jas_2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    Salvation is NOT by faith alone because the Bible says it is BY GRACE....through faith..justification before and from God IS by faith alone in the death. burial, and resurrection of Christ according to Paul, and before men our faith is justified as demonstrated by our works which God afore ordained for us to do (Ephesians 2:10). The life we lead is proof of our faith...you shall know them by their fruits.

    The works of God produce the Faith of salvation.

    Do you have the Faith of Salvation?

    If not then your works are dead.

    You cannot have Grace without Truth. One without the other will not produce Faith.

    Having faith is to believe in all of what God promises, which includes salvation.


    The verses clearly say that if your works, what you do in life, do not reflect faith then you have a dead faith.

    I think Bandit is correct. If we do not define "saved" then scripture affirms that one is saved by;
    • childbearing (1st Timothy 2:15)
    • water (1st Peter 3:20)
    • enduring (Matthew 10:20, 24:13)
    • abiding in a ship (Acts 27:31)

    And further, far from faith, we must WORK out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).

    Faith is a work. A work of God. To which he rested from on the seventh day and sanctified and blessed it.

    How much Faith do you have in this?

    Are we to have Faith in our Faith?

    The Faith that God measured out to each of us?

    Faith is everywhere.
