“…the Grace of God is for us the fluid that runs from vine to the vine branch. On the part of man, saving and actualized faith is necessary, i.e. faith which worketh by love (Gal. 5:6). Without this contribution of mans, salvation is not held out for any man. Conscious faith in God, without good deeds, the demons, too, possess, for they also believe and tremble (Jas. 2:19). Holy Scripture itself makes clear that good works are necessary for salvation.”
(Elder St Cleopha in ‘The Truth of Our Faith’)
