I know there are those who believe that salvation is followed by works. I believe in most cases that is true. But it seems to me that the only qualification for salvation is belief which is faith in Jesus Christ. So how would you explain the idea of lordship salvation to someone who talks about the man of the cross next to Jesus? He only had belief. I don't see how he could have had any works other than faith in Jesus. I am also thinking of 1 Cor. 3:15, "If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire."
