Yeah, I'm definitely wrong about you believing in works. You just used the point of "work" to become a better Christian.
There are only Christians. Not "better" ones. You can't work to do anything. That's the problem YOU
If the most important aspect of Christianity is the relationship
the believer has with Christ, then works are absolutely required. A relationship is a two way street and requires effort on the parts of both parties. So when a Christian gets up in the morning to read the Word before going to work, or goes to a study group to learn more about God's Word, they are performing works in order to strengthen the relationship they have with their savior
. Arguing against the notion that works are what gets you to Heaven is arguing against a point she hasn't made. Works will not get you to Heaven, but works, i.e. effort and actions taken by the believer, are crucial in strengthening the relationship between God and the believer. How else do you grow your faith if not by works, by exercising it, challenging it?
