My husband was playing golf with his two buddies yesterday. The discussion turned to religion and faith only theology.
One of his friends said something along the lines of:
When Jesus was on the cross, he had the two criminals on either side of him. To the one who believed, Jesus promised eternal life.
They used this to say that faith alone is all that is needed for salvation. I thought my hubby did a good job by saying that it wasn’t him just believing but him also speaking up which is an action. Also he brought up the verse that states that faith without works is dead.
What else can he have said to the above statement. I think that his friends are non-denominational Christians. The talk, from what I understand, was pleasant and an exchange of ideas rather than a bitter, screaming match.
