This is my first point on RZIM Connect!
So, I met up with a friend recently who converted around the same time as myself (~3 years ago). And he has somewhat strayed from his faith. One topic of contention we got into was about works and faith, where I thought he believed in works as a means of salvation to some extent. As he was explaining as a Christian he felt he needed to read the Bible, and pray, to be saved.
My main approach was to talk about about God and Jesus and us as a relationship, which I linked to my marriage. Then he questioned me, isn’t finding about Jesus/God through the Bible or praying a “work” in itself? My response was that it’s not really a work, but more it’s a joy to read a “love letter” from God, or to talk to him, the same way it is with my wife.
My question is, have any of you been posed a similar question? And how did you respond?
