We are saved by faith alone

This seems rather evident, when you read passages such as Ephesians 2:8-9: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast." There is no way we can earn salvation--the cost is too high. --David B (TALK) 13:16, 4 April 2017 (EDT)

I agree. One cannot arrive at another conclusion by reading the Bible. See Romans 11:6, (actually the entire book of Romans, particularly the first four chapters), Hebrews 11, and Habakkuk 2:4, for example. Putting works into the equation takes away Christ's necessity. In case someone brings up James, that is because sanctification comes after justification, not before. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:45, 4 April 2017 (EDT)
