Faith and Works – Your Actions Matter

In Blog, Faith and Works by S. L. Ozbun2 Comments

For years, I’ve used a phrase, which no doubt has become overused on my part, which says, “actions matter, because our actions demonstrate what we truly believe.”

True biblical Christianity is hard to find here in the western world. The average Christian today follows a secular version of Christ, not the Christ of the Bible. They claim to have a relationship with Jesus. However, I would argue that many of them have deceived themselves. They hear the word, at least in part when they go to Church but they don’t actually obey the word. (James 1:22-25). This is largely because of the apostasy that the modern Church, along with its preachers and teachers, has fallen into. Instead of calling for their congregation to repent, believe, be baptized and live a transformed life, they teach them a false gospel of “love and tolerance.” Not to be confused with biblical love, which requires the truth, but rather the world’s version of love, which is tailored towards indulging every whim and desire of the flesh in the name of tolerance.

In this study, “Faith and Works” we are examining what the Bible TRULY teaches about the Christian faith and what it means to LIVE it out, not just in words and thoughts, but in our daily conduct. May it bless you and pierce your hearts.
