Not too long ago another forum member shared the following:
“Works cannot save us (only the Grace of Christian Baptism can do that). Failure to perform a reasonably expected work, given sufficient knowledge and consent, could condemn us, but no good work can save us”.
I never knew that good works, once a person is saved through baptism are not necessary for salvation. I always thought that good works is just another way to express one’s love of God and neighbor and a sure way to grow in the grace and knowledge of God and, as such, a source to strengthen one’s hold on their present salvation. I can also see where no good works could led to the loss of salvation but I also see where good works can be a source of God’s grace. A grace many of us need to grow in in order to retain our salvation. Where am I going wrong?
