In Christianity there have always been two extremes, and each side has a faithful group of followers, and that is why we must ask God in prayer to lead us on the right path, the true path, that we find it in the light of the Scriptures.
At the time of the reform, faith and works were the main topic, since for the Catholic church at that time the works were above faith, that is, they believed in indulgences and a lot of works that brought you closer to God according to them. But the truth is that we learn through the Bible that there is no work that brings us closer to God, the only work that really brings us closer to God is the work of Christ concluded on the cross of Calvary.
Let’s see what the apostle James said about this:
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
