Passage: Ephesians 2:8

Grace Saves, Not morality

For by grace are ye saved through faith; 
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God


Morality is not grace, because it doth not change nature. If it did, many of the heathen were as near to God as the best of Christians. Whatever may be done by the strength of nature cannot alter it; for no nature can change itself. Poison may be great within the skin, like a viper’s. Be we never so speckled with a reformation, freedom from gross sins argues not a friendship for God. None were ever so great enemies to Christ as the Pharisees, to whom Christ gave no better a title than that of the devil’s children, and charges them with hatred both of himself and his Father.
