And faith without works is dead; I can selectively quote too. You must profess Jesus with all your heart and soul, and then you must DO something about it. That's the real meaning of works. Did you feed the hungry? Clothe the naked? Visit the sick and imprisoned? Give drink to the thirsty? Show by your actions how a believing Christian should live? Faith and works go together, Andy; a person of deep Christian faith will try to live out their faith in action. They can't help it; the joy of the Lord inside them will manifest itself in works no matter how little they think of works theologically. One follows the other the way night follows day.
