If faith is a work then faith is always a work. If man created in God’s image has the capacity to believe Or If man created in God’s image does not have the capacity to believe but is regenerated and given faith as a gift what difference is there once man has the capacity to believe? Let us say that the view that God gives a gift of faith to man before or after he is regenerated. Is not a gift that is received a possession of the receiver? If man’s faith is a work when he exercises it then it stands to reason that regardless of any other reason or circumstance that to believe is to work. If we say believing is work then when does believing not become work?
