Faith and works are irrelevant?

Some people say, "All you have to do is to believe in God diligently, and you don't have to try to keep every commandment (feasts, worship)." or "If you don't worship once, God doesn't punish you. God is love, so He will forgive you". Obviously, it is very important for us to truly believe in God in our faith. But can we really be saved only by believing in God?
If we can be saved just by believing in God, the church has no meaning of existence and we don't have to pray.

Jn 13:15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you
Ja 2:17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead

Because Jesus is God, He does not need to practice faith, but He set an example to show that we must follow Him. The faith itself without kind of action is dead. In other word, without action, we cannot be saved. Then, what kind of action should we take? Let's look at an example.

Ex 20:8 Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy

Lk 4:16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom...
Ac 17:2 As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,

Nowadays, most of churches keep the Sunday service. However, the Sabbath day(on Saturday) was given for us as the fourth commandment of the Ten Commandments. So the Israelites kept the Sabbath according to the Ten commandments in the Old Testament times. The Sabbath day was kept not only in the Old Testament times but also in the New Testament times by Jesus and His apostles. Jesus set an example of keeping the Sabbath day and the apostles who were taught by Him also followed His example and kept the Sabbath day.

If we believe Jesus as our Savior and want to emulate the apostles' faith, we must abandon the prejudice that we can be saved without action and follow their path of faith.

    The way that we have firm belief in God is action. Through our deeds, we can express our faith. If you truly love God, you cannot stand to show your belief through the deeds. It is important to keep all the feasts and commands that our God taught us to follow!

    We should know the difference between knowing God and believing in God! Knowing God is one thing and believing in God is another. There're two kinds of believes in the world. Some believers think that they'll be saved because they possess firm belief on God, thinking that there's no need to do something. But, the Bible says that faith by itself without any deed is dead, not alive. Those who claim to believe in God without any deed is telling a life before God. In God's sight, they are pretending to believe in God. We have to keep what God has said with all our hearts!

    Believing God always contains keeping the commandments of God:)

    Faith without deed is meaningless. As Jesus had done an example for us, we should follow all teachings of God with faith and deed. the Sabbath of the New Covenant is the truth that Jesus and His disciple kept.

    I sincerely thanks to Heavenly parents for giving me eternal and endless love.

    How do you prove your faith without doing anything? Why did God make the ten commandments and covenant? Without keeping God's commandments, how can we say that we follow God? We have to think about it in front of the insistence that they can go to Heaven without doing anything.

    If we believe in God, we must keep God's commandments. It is God's command to keep the Sabbath, not Sunday worship.

    We should follow the teachings of Jesus by obeying the words of God with a firm faith like Jesus' apostles.
    If we do not practice the teachings of God. we can never receive the forgiveness of sins according to the words of God.

    2000 years ago, Jesus said that no matter how hard you believe in God, you cannot enter Heaven unless you performing by God's will (Mt 7:21). Through the Bible, we can realize that it is God's will to keep the Sabbath and Passover, etc.


  • 2021-04-21 13:02

    Amen. We can have true faith by practicing the laws of God. Thanks to God Ahnsahnghong and heavenly Mother for letting me keep the Sabbath!

    we will keep the commandments of God.
