True, t’s not salvation by works, but if we have the right faith, we’ll have the right works.
Well, I guess I have to put them up again.
“By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”
"The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.”
"and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
“Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”
It’s not Marcion who said it, it was James, the half-brother of Jesus, at the Jerusalem council in Acts 15 which met for the very purpose to decide if gentiles believers should obey the Mosaic law. They said to avoid immorality, blood, idols and the meat from strangled animals. So the answer was no!
That is not at all what Jesus was saying an Matthew 5. He said that he came to fulfill the law and prophets, and that they were to obey the law, “until everything is accomplished.” (v18). That to me is when the New Testament period was ushered in, in Acts 2. But we, as Christians, are not called to obey the law or the prophets, but Jesus, who fulfilled them.
“Definitely called”? Where does it say anywhere in the NT that we are called to, “seek justice and correct oppression”?
In the Christian faith, our lives are our worship, not 1.5 hours on Sunday. And our lives are called to be an imitation of Christ. If we do that, then we are truly worshiping God.
