FALSE TEACHING: Salvation by works
The simple answer is that salvation by works seems right in the eyes of man. And this is what we learn from Proverbs 14:12 – “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.”
“I preached first to those in Damascus, then in Jerusalem and throughout all Judea and also to the Gentiles, that all must repent of their sins and turn to God – and prove they have changed by the good things they do.”
Good works follow a repentant heart because we are compelled by our experience to share.
