“Choosing this day whom you will serve is lip service only—until you actually live accordingly (see Joshua 24:15).”
Russell M. Nelson,
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without bworks 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
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Without faith it is impossible to please Him. We need faith in addition to works. We must believe that He is and that He rewards them that diligently seek him. Not just say they believe, but diligently seek him. Faith is believing and seeking. Some might call the seeking works. Actions are more powerful than words.
Dallin H. Oaks, "The Lord's Way", P50, Last partial paragraph
"The source of the ancient conflict between (1) reason or intellect and (2) faith or revelation is the professor's rejection of revelation, not the prophet's rejection of reason."
21 And now as I said concerning faith—faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.
