Is faith the only requirement for salvation? Is believing the one thing we can do?

The format of the site is c-h-a-n-g-i-n-g!! [doodododo!] Thanks for this work fo faith brother!

I loved the opening responses to Mark's question, and wonderful how you both relate your own stories to it! Under a great deal of stress the past month, I remember once saying, "it doesn't have a ' ' thing to do with my faith!", and then I walked away from that, and it's like my Spirit says, "oh, yes, it has everything to do with your faith," meaning the faith, and I loved how Adam said this, "the faith that you've been brought into." There IS a difference for me in my emotional reactions to stress, and that 'faith' that is in Union with Him and is there all along. Does that make sense? Anyways, I enjoy such a fellowship with you guys, and it's such wonderful, insightful encouragement!

Mary, I haven't really ever heard someone ELSE express this reality in the way that you have. How encouraging to hear it. I mean, why WOULDN'T the God of Truth make it so?

Adam, thank you. (heart)

Oh my gosh!  I was able to log in…it was easy!  Yay!  Hope it keeps up this way! lol.  Anyway, I wanted to say…Adam, Thank You. (heart)

"Christ in You, the Hope"

Excellent insight, - that happiness is the absence of blame. Death is what blames everyone in the world, so no one in the world is ever truly happy.

smileyGeorgi so good to hear from you brother.

Random Shovelquote: The living side of the grave (view all shovelquotes)

there is no advice in this world – even if it comes from a Bible verse or a preacher’s sermon – that can produce God’s work within you. Oh, it might make you appear more spiritually productive, but the working of God doesn’t come from the practical side of the grave … but from the living side that has risen past it. When I tell you that Christ is your life, I’m telling you about the one and only present-tense reality that causes you to live as one who is truly alive in this world. source
