Continuing our series on Faith and works we once again look at the Catholic view, presented by CatholicBibleTalk
According to Heb 11:8,
Hebrews 11:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
Abraham came to faith in Gen 12:1-4,
but according to Romans 4:3 he was not justified until Gen 15:6.
Romans 4:3King James Version (KJV)
3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
And according to James 2:24, Abraham is further justified in Gen 22:1-18.
James 2:20-22King James Version (KJV)
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
