Salvation

Is salvation achieved through faith alone, or does it include works?

    Psalm 50:
    > “Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
    >23 Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”

    Clearest example in Scripture. You go to heaven even if you don't work. Faith is what saves, because that is how we receive Christ's righteousness:
    >But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
    Romans 4:5

    So, not of works, or it wouldn't be grace:
    >And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
    Romans 11:6

    So, not by works, but by faith in Christ. In fact, it goes on to say that no one will be justified by works:
    >Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
    Galatians 2:16

    Again, not of works:
    >8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Ephesians 2:8-9

    Not by our works, again:
    >Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
    Titus 3:5

    Not of the law of works:
    >Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
    Romans 3:27

    Etcetera etcetera... I could go on and on, but you get the point.

      Were the sheep in Matthew 25:31–46 saved by their faith or works?

      Also this,

      Behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
      He said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read it?"
      He answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
      He said to him, "You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live."

    sola gratia, sola scriptura, sola fide, solus christus
    Only by HIS grace, by faith in Jesus and the rules and precedent in the bible. That is the Lutheran view, at least.

    There is no "salvation." Heaven was made up by scared little shaved apes who can't accept their own mortality.

    Isaiah 6:5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

    6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

    If the blood of Jesus is the only way to find forgiveness of Sin then how did God forgive Isaiah's sin using a coal?

      It is not the only way. It is the way the original sin gets absolved from all. God can of course forgive single people.

        And how did Elijah's original sin get forgiven for him to be taken to heaven alive without paying the price of sin which is death?
