    1. Faith Only? We Get Emails! 26 Mar 09

    2. mailmandan Defines Faith “dependance on, reliance in Christ's finished work ALONE” • Quotes Passages to “Prove” his point • Jn. 1:12; Jn. 3:16-18, 36; Jn. 5:24; Phil. 3:9; 1 Jn. 5:13

    3. John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”

    4. John 3:16-18 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. {17} For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. {18} He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

    5. John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

    6. John 5:24 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”

    7. Philippians 3:9 “…and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.”

    8. 1 John 5:13 “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”

    9. mailmandan Defines Faith “dependance on, reliance in Christ's finished work ALONE” • Quotes Passages to “Prove” his point • Jn. 1:12; Jn. 3:16-18, 36; Jn. 5:24; Phil. 3:9; 1 Jn. 5:13 • Note: All of these passages teach salvation by Faith, but not by Faith Alone!

    10. mailmandan’s Claim “You are teaching a "works based FALSE gospel."” • Note the condemnation of salvation by works in Ephesians 2:8-9

    11. Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, {9} not of works, lest anyone should boast.” No man can earn his salvation. He can’t boast of “deserving to be in heaven.” We can only obtain eternal life due to the grace of God extended to man

    12. mailmandan’s Claim “You are teaching a "works based FALSE gospel."” • Note the condemnation of salvation by works in Ephesians 2:8-9 • Reality: We are saved by the Grace of God, accessed by Faith, and can’t earn our salvation.

    13. mailmandan’s Claim “You are teaching a "works based FALSE gospel."” • Note the condemnation of salvation by works in Ephesians 2:8-9 • Reality: We are saved by the Grace of God, accessed by Faith, and can’t earn our salvation. • Question: What kind of faith?

    14. mailmandan’s “two Faiths” “So many people confuse ‘head knowledge faith’ with ‘HEART knowledge faith.’” • Head Knowledge Faith: “Believes that Jesus exists, that he's the Son of God and that his death, burial and resurrection HAPPENED. This "faith alone" cannot save you. This is just [intellectual acknowledgement alone.]”

    15. mailmandan’s “two Faiths” “So many people confuse ‘head knowledge faith’ with ‘HEART knowledge faith.’” • Heart Knowledge Faith: “Is head know-ledge faith + TRUSTS IN WHAT HAP-PENED to receive eternal life. That's the HUGE difference. Trusting 100% in the finished work of Christ ALONE saves. It's NOT Christ + {something else} baptism, confession etc…”

    16. James’ “two Faiths” • Faith Without Works (2:19-20) • Merely Mental Assent • Does Not Save

    17. James 2:19-20 “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe; and tremble! {20} But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?”

    18. James’ “two Faiths” • Faith Without Works (2:19-20) • Merely Mental Assent • Does Not Save • Faith With Works (2:21-22) • Faith proved by doing (cf. vs. 18) • “Perfect” or Saving Faith

    19. James 2:21-22 “Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? {22} Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?”

    20. James’ “two Faiths” • Faith Without Works (2:19-20) • Merely Mental Assent • Does Not Save • Faith With Works (2:21-22) • Faith proved by doing (cf. vs. 18) • “Perfect” or Saving Faith • Faith Alone (2:14, 17, 24, 26)

    21. James 2:14, 17, 24, 26 (14), “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?” (17), “Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” (24), “You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.” (26), “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without worksis dead also.”

    22. James & mailmandan Contrasted • James and mailmandan: Dead faith is merely mental assent. • James: Saving faith is faith shown by works done. • Mailmandan: Saving faith is “trusting 100% in the finished work of Christ ALONE saves”

    23. The Necessity of Baptism • One of the acts of obedience required by Christ to be saved is Baptism • Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16

    24. Mark 16:15-16 “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. {16} He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.’”

    25. Acts 2:37-38 “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Men and brethren, what shall we do?’ {38} Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’”

    26. Acts 22:10, 16 (10), “So I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.’” (16), (Annanias), “And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.”

    27. The Necessity of Baptism • One of the acts of obedience required by Christ to be saved is Baptism • Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16 • Baptism doesn’t earn salvation • Answer of a good conscience (1 Pet. 3:21)

    28. 1 Peter 3:20-22 “…when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. {21} There is also an antitype which now saves us; baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, {22} who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.”

    29. Passover Lamb Aaronic High Priest a Flood (1 Pet. 3:21) Christ (Does Christ’s Blood really save?) Christ/Melchizadek (Does Christ really make intercession?) Baptism (Does baptism really save?) Type / Antitype

    30. The Necessity of Baptism • One of the acts of obedience required by Christ to be saved is Baptism • Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16 • Baptism doesn’t earn salvation • Answer of a good conscience (1 Pet. 3:21) • Baptism the final step (Ro. 6:1-4)

    31. Romans 6:1-4 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? {2} Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? {3} Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? {4} Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

    32. Faith Only? No! Rather, an Obedient faith, made “Perfect” by works done by a good conscience! 18 Feb 04
