GOOD WORKS Jesus teaches, “LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN, THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN” [Mt 5:16 NKJ]. It is important to notice that when people see “GOOD WORKS”, they give glory to God not the person doing the good works. Many Christian religions have manmade teachings against works because of Paul’s writings criticizing works. Many modern bible translations translate the Greek word ‘ergon’, which means works, as works when it is negative and expressions like “good things” or “good deeds” when it is positive, apparently not wanting to offend followers of manmade teachings. Does God get glory when people see your good works?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
