Salvation is Either By Faith or By Works NOT Both

Today there are wolves in sheep's clothing that teach that salvation is both by faith and by works. These cultists can be the most obvious (ex. Roman Catholic priests, Buddhist monks, Pentecostal pastors, Mormon ministers) to the least obvious (those who pretend or claim to be born again Christians, the magisterial Protestants, New World Order expositors) but nonetheless, they are boarded on the same boat of works salvation. These false teachers need not their names to be mentioned, they expose themselves for the wolves they really are! The Lord Jesus didn't single out and name all the Pharisees either, His words exposed all of them at once for who they are!
They can teach trashy, unsound doctrine with statements like, "Well salvation is initially by faith because you can't save yourself. However Christians still need to do good works to enter Heaven." or "You can't show me one verse in the Bible that says you are saved even when you fall into sin.&…

It's Impossible to be a Christian and Not Bear Even ONE Good Fruit for the Lord Jesus Christ

First and foremost, anybody who does not believe in the heresy of works salvation is NOT an Antinomian (anybody who has no regard of morality) because born again believers do not add works to being saved like cultists do. However, there is a difference between being saved by faith and what happens. In the Christian life, it is not a stagnant "just look up and wait for Jesus" type of life. Why? The Lord Jesus mentioned in Matthew 7:17-20 saying, "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither can a corrupt tree bring good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." How does this connect? It's time to review salvation according to the Bible.
So in Romans 3, one sees the reality of sinful state of man, the helplessness of man's efforts and that the Lord Jesus Ch…

Defending the Doctrine and Tradition of Sola Scriptura

This entry is in honor of former Roman Catholic priest, Richard Bennett who is now a born again Christian by the grace of God and his comrades at Berean Beacon.

In the Christian doctrine and tradition, it's always Bible alone and it's Scriptural.  Now it's time to actually go down to defend the doctrine and tradition of what is called as Sola Scriptura or "Scripture alone".  Since most cults claim to be apostolic, it would be best to forward most of these with the writings of the apostles themselves to refute their claims.  There will however be no mention of specific persons, only heresies and cults.  This blog would do its best to keep itself professional and not personal as attacking cults and heresies will refute anybody who upholds them.
1 Timothy 3:15-17 says, "And that from a child thou hast known the holy Scriptures which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God an…
