Accept No Substitutes: Faith in Jesus Christ is the Only Way



Some substitutes just don't work. To reach our ultimate destination, nothing can substitute for faith in Jesus Christ. Any thing else will fall flat.

I agree. Nothing can substitute for faith. Especially not works.

"Christians have often disputed as to whether what leads the Christian home is good actions, or Faith in Christ. I have no right really to speak on such a difficult question, but it does seem to me like asking which blade in a pair of scissors is most necessary... The Bible really seems to clinch the matter when it puts the two things together into one amazing sentence. The first half is, 'Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling' - which looks as if everything depended on us and our good actions; but the second half goes on, 'for it is God who worketh in you' - which looks as of God did everything and we nothing."
(CS Lewis, "Mere Christianity," chapter 12, p. 131)
