Works verses Faith
The following discussion between a SOL researcher and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, answers an interesting question: What is more important having faith or doing good works as a method of growing spiritually?
Questioner: This sort of skirts that faith versus works issue that a lot of churches debate. Can you have faith without works? Are you saved by faith or are you saved by works?
The Council: Oh, we hear a lot of religious rhetoric.
Questioner: Well, we just saw the movie "Luther."
The Council: If you have faith, you are going to have works. If you have works, you eventually will have faith. Are we dodging your question?
The Council: One cannot go without the other. One cannot be without the other. It is just a question of which is going to come first with the individual. It is like changing yourself. As it was mentioned earlier, garbage in, garbage out. Good in, good out. If you do not have faith, doing things of a goodly nature will stimulate that faith. Having faith will stimulate good deeds. You cannot have one without the other. It is just a question which will manifest first with an individual. Does that answer the question?
Questioner: Yes, it just makes me wonder why religious people have been arguing about this off and on for hundreds of years?
