Faith alone sufficient for salvation?
We are indeed justified by faith, but that faith is to be a living faith ... one that will prompt us to good works and
find its expression in them. St. Paul exhorts us, Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in
due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart (Gal. 6,9) ... James, too,
stresses the importance of good works that stem from faith ─ Faith by itself, if it has no works, is
dead (James 2,17).
