“For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” (Matthew 16:27).
This declaration by Jesus pertains to BOTH evil works and works of Christian love.
Protestants will undoubtedly twist this unequivocal statement by Jesus to conform to their convenient preconceived notions about no effort being required on their part to enter Jesus’ Kingdom.
However, John 3:36 shows a clear dichotomy between those who believe in Jesus , and those who disobey Jesus’ commands: “whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” (John 3:36).
Hence, belief in Jesus and obedience to his commands are necessarily MUTUALLY INCLUSIVE. The Protestants Christian A.W. Tozer elucidates: "“In the New Testament there is no contradiction between faith and obedience. Between faith and law-works, yes; between law and grace, yes; but between faith and obedience, not at all. The Bible recognizes no faith that does not lead to obedience, nor does it recognize any obedience that does not spring from faith.”
Those who do not obey Jesus’ commands do not love Him, and therefore, DO NOT BELIEVE in Him. Jesus said “if you love me you will obey my commands” (John 14:15).
What’s more, those who have heard Jesus’ commands but continue to disobey them would have been better off not hearing his commands at all. Verily, Jesus said that at the Second Coming, " the men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now something greater than Jonah is here." (Matthew 12:41).
I suggest you Protestants stop construing Sacred Scripture in such a convenient ‘sola fide’ manner
