Faith is moved by deeds

Last week i was reading a discussion about salvation among several christian denominations. Someone was arguing that Catholics put emphasis on being saved by good works and yet salvation comes from God's grace. while i agree with that i think that it is quite silly to think that you can have faith and not try to align your actions with faith. As james said, "faith without action is dead."



How can you have faith in the unseen God and not be moved to do good? How can you say you love God and not show that love to others? By your actions, people will recognize the faith that you have and also be moved by it. You cannot just sit back and say i have faith in God and thus i am saved! That is folly!


Let us all try to have a faith that is alive and a faith that inspires others to be better people and brings peace to all men. God bless you all!
