We confess that good works are not necessary for salvation, but in what sense *are* they necessary? Hear also why some people accuse Lutherans of “forbidding good works,” how this article on Good Works is really more about faith than about works, whether there is a wrong motivation for doing good works, what good works truly are, and whether there is a time that doing good works would actually be an insult to the work of Christ.
Rev. Andy Wright joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss good works in Article XX in the Augsburg Confession.
