Works vs Faith (general)

posted by Lorenzo(R) E-mail, Charlotte, NC, 10.14.2014

The answer to my question is : love is the greatest. You might want to reread 1 corinthians 13.

1 Corinthians 13:13 So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

When Jesus says in Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord, ’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven." It is not because they lack faith, but rather they lack love.

The young man in Mark 10:21 was lacking love, not faith. Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

Finally, the goats in Matthew 25 did not lack faith, since they address Jesus as Lord. "Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ They are cast into hell because they lacked love. He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me. And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
