Rev. Foley shares that one of the most significant differences between Christians and non-Christians is that we do not believe in the concept of “neutral” actions. Scripturally, everything that we do is either good or evil. It’s time to brush up on our understanding of original sin and how it affects us today. In Luke 18:19, Jesus says that “No one is good except God alone,” and thus good actions can only spring forth from a life that has God’s spirit in it!

The Catholic heresy: faith+ works=justification
The Protestant Heresy: faith-works=justification
The truth: faith = justification + works Eph. 2:8-10 We’re saved for good works, not by them. God is the source of all good in us, in the world . God is always looking at your heart, not the size of your accompishments, but the motives behind them. Some of my rapology goes, “He’s searchin’ your heart and He’s bound to know -if you’re goin’ for His glory or you goin’ for yours!” Praying for you and Mrs. F daily.
Good word, JT! Well taught! (And well rapped!)
