Foundation of Repentance of Dead Works
Foundation #2 - It appears that the Bible talks about two kinds of dead works:
1. Those works we do before we are saved as a means to try to please God (e.g. filthy rags as in Isaiah 64:6) 2. Those works we do after we are saved that are not pleasing to God (e.g. wood, hay, and stubble as in 1 Corinthians 3:11-12). This study relates to these two areas in our lives.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
- Hebrews 9:14 (KJV)
