What are "Works" according to the bible. I've read so much on this site with the word "Works" being applied to things that it should not be applied to. For example: Repentance: Is this a Work according to scripture or a response to Gods calling directly linked to salvation. Obedience: Is this Work or is it a Command directly linked to salvation. Following Jesus: Is this Work or is it a Command directly linked to salvation. Baptism (Faith, water, in Jesus): Is this Work or a Command directly linked to salvation? Confession: Is this a work or command? Faith: This has to be the biggest "Work" of all, because all of the above is done in faith according to all passages of the bible (not just one taken out of context Romans 10:8-11 ). If "WORK" is whatever you do then Why do we change our minds? Isn't that doing something? Don't we turn our hearts to the Lord? Isn't that "DOING" something. People Falsely call anything that Physically done a work without considering the emotional work as well. What about Obedience? Is it just an act of Heart and mind but no strength? Does God not act on our behalf when ALL of the above are "DONE"? For all OSAS believers, What biblically is a "WORK"? And Please give scriptures and not your opinion.
