From our Pastor:

 

I hear a lot of people these days crying, (Works) for things that have nothing to do whatsoever with being saved. It's a blanket statement for things that they don't understand or acknowledge as the responsibility of persons that have heard the truth. Truth requires action, not just a nod of the head in agreement. Truth calls for a person to walk in the light, be a doer of the truth, showing you truly believe it. I like the song Travis Clayton sings: "Obedience is the very best way to show that you believe". I have a man on tape that preached that obedience was not part of the Gospel. I wonder what he does with the two verses that speak of the judgment of God on those that obey not the Gospel?. Obeying the Gospel is not “works” for salvation, it's simply walking in the light which is the only way, according to I John 1:6 tells us is the way to receiving the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. Then there is the verse that says that the doers of the Word are the ones that are not deceived. Cry works if they want, but no person is right with God that is disobedient to the Word of God. I believe that rebellion is as wicked as witchcraft, and to call doing the will of God is working for salvation shows Scriptural ignorance. When a preacher preaches Bible standards, they are revealing light and God fully expects one to walk in it. When it says that men must repent, it's not works to give up your sinful practices.  Works, as in trusting your baptism for an atonement for sin is a type of salvation by works. Trusting your profession instead of trusting Jesus by faith is also Works.

 

I still believe the little song Travis sings settles the issue.
