It is primarily a matter of accent, so to speak. James says faith
without works is dead. Paul would agree -- he pounds those who are
Christian in name but act in a manner displeasing to God (e.g. the
Corinthians). Essentially, this seems to reveal the idea that
salvation is dependent on Grace, but the outworking of the Spirit in
living faith results in good works.
