Scriptures on Works (The work God has asked us to do) (aka required for salvation) primarily from the New Testament  by Nate Richardson

This is to show how works have always been expected of God’s people, including New Testament times, and modern times. This is in opposition to the popular idea that by grace alone we are saved. I am bold in this, not thinking it a crime to rely on the scriptures rather than the creeds of men!

For a composition showing how God has always been graceful with his children, see document “Scriptures on Grace (God’s works for us) from the Old Testament (showing God does not change)” at this link: https://richardsonstudies.wordpress.com/2016/04/21/scriptures-on-grace-the-works-of-god-for-us-from-the-old-testament-shows-god-is-unchanging-2/
