No, Paul was about grace…Jesus was about the condition of the heart and how people loved God and loved their neighbor (how he summarizes the 10 Commandments).

No, despite my words above I don’t live differently than that. Quite contrarily it is your words that are different. You focus only on one aspect…one piece of the puzzle. That is an incomplete view of salvation.

[b:17a1q2e3]Matthew 7:17-21[/b:17a1q2e3]
[color=red:17a1q2e3][b:17a1q2e3]”Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them. “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.”[/b:17a1q2e3][/color:17a1q2e3]

Stop taking Scripture out of context.

Your verses prove nothing against what I said. Salvation IS dependent upon faith + works as plainly stated in the Bible. It is Jesus’ work and the fruit we bear.
