  3. Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. Paul vs. James

  4. Romans 4:5But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness Paul vs. James

  5. James 2:24You see that a man is justified by works and not by faith alone. Romans 3:28For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. Paul vs. James

  6. Roman Catholic • Works required to gain eternal life Arminian • Works required to keep eternal life Reformed/Calvinist • Works required to prove eternal life 3 Views of James 2

  7. “justification is by grace alone (not mixed with our merit), through faith alone (not mixed with our works), on the basis of Christ alone (not mingling His righteousness with ours), to the glory of God alone (not ours).” from When I Don’t Desire God John Piper

  8. “These are just some of the conditions that the New Testament says we must meet in order to inherit final salvation. We must believe on Jesus and receive him and turn from our sin and obey him…” from Desiring God John Piper

  9. “…and humble ourselves like little children and love him more than we love our family, our possessions or our own life. This is what it means to be converted to Christ. This alone is the way of everlasting life.” from Desiring God John Piper

  10. “Put your faith in Him. Accept the incredible gift of the cross, where Jesus took upon Himself the punishment we deserve and gives to us the life, healing, and redemption that come only through grace.” from Erasing Hell Francis Chan

  11. “Put simply, failing to help the poor could damn you to hell.” from Erasing Hell “As I see it, a lukewarm Christian is an oxymoron; there’s no such thing. To put it plainly, churchgoers who are ‘lukewarm’ are not Christians. We will not see them in heaven.” from Crazy Love Francis Chan

  12. Roman Catholic • Works required to gain eternal life Arminian • Works required to keep eternal life Reformed/Calvinist • Works required to prove eternal life 3 Views of James 2
