If that is true--then why are all men judged according to works--after death--and that for life or damnation?Bonnie said:
it is GOD's doing that we are in Christ Jesus, so that Jesus has become our wisdom, our RIGHTEOUSNESS, our sanctification, and our REDEMPTION. Our attempts to keep the law perfectly will always fail. But Jesus kept all the law perfectly, in our stead. When we have faith in Him unto salvation, HIS perfect keeping of the Law is transferred and imputed to us, thus making us perfect in our Heavenly Father's eyes. But it is JESUS' perfection that God sees in us, not our own--for we have none of our own to boast about.
John 5:28-29--King James Version
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
Bonnie--please do show us where it states in the scriptures our choices play no part in obtaining God's grace unto life?
Matthew 16:27--King James Version
27 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.
That only shows faith alone theology is false, IMO.
