Faith alone? Yes or No?
Grace (unmerited favor) by faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus as God and Messiah, alone, apart from works, will one find a covenant relationship with God the Father that is sealed and Guaranteed by the indwelling Holy Spirit (John 3:16). No man or woman possess the righteousness or the capability to work themselves into relationship with God through the mediation of one’s sin as we’re all sinners condemned by the Law void atonement (Romans 3:20; Galatians 3:16); therefore, Jesus, alone, is God who entered Time via the seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15) in order to circumvent the seed of Adam (the sin-nature) (Romans 5:12) and Jesus kept the works of the Law for you and promises to give you HIS perfection via the imputation of HIS righteousness if you will believe-trust in Him, alone, as God and Messiah (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
It is your faithfulness and obedience subsequent to salvation that validates your faith but your works cannot supplant the sufficiency of faith in Messiah (Ephesians 2:8-9)…ALONE!
