Greetings, I apologize if I have been unclear about what I believe about salvation by works and faith in other dispensations. I would like to sum it up as simple as I can. First, I don't believe that the works have anything to do with being good or observing moral laws. Second, I also don't believe that it has anything to do with keeping the Law of Moses, although the Law was connected with this in some ways that I am still undecided about. What I believe is that James and Matthew give a good example of what I mean. I believe that James 2:15-16 and Matthew 25:33-46 are both perfect examples of what I am saying. It's in plain English. I understand that MT 25:32 says "all nations", and whether the Jews are included in that or not is debatable. However, simply put, SOMEONE didn't do what they were supposed to do, i.e. feed the hungry, give a drink to the thirsty, take in a stranger, clothe the naked, or visit the sick and imprisoned. And their end was everlasting punishment.
There are many more examples, but time limits me to these two, which I believe more than suffice.
