There are Christians who attempt to redefine the Gospel by making faith the equivalent of obedience.
In so doing, the whole point of the Gospel is lost. The Gospel is swallowed up by Law. Paul makes a critical distinction
between those who observe the law and those who “believe what you heard” (Gal. 3:2) So should we.
There is a difference between obedience to God’s Word and faith in God’s Word. Obedience should follow faith (Heb. 5:9; 1 John 2:5; 5:3).
Faith and obedience are never separated in the Christian life (Rom. 16:26; 1 Pet. 1:22). Yet, they are never treated as synonymous (Rom. 4:1-5).
