    A popular passage that I use often when I open air is Mt 7:21-23 which describes the multitude of false converts whom exist in the church today. I was just reading what Comfort says about this passage in his excellent book "What did Jesus do?" and he says the following.

    These days many avoid using these preacher "bad words" but insist on only preaching the gospel and to that a multitude of proud people, so its no wonder so many these days have made a false profession of faith, OR they are elementary children in the faith, only God knows.

    Comfort couldn't be any more wrong. On that day, many will wish they heard more about being justified APART from works.

    Today's church leaders are churning out sons of hell, much in the same way the Pharisees did in NT times.

    Conflicted messages like " justified by faith alone, but faith is not alone" are much of the problem

    You do not believe in faith alone?

    No that is not what he was saying at all.

    Do you mean faith apart from the Law, or faith and the Law (e.g., placing people under the Mosaic Law)?
