Well, yes and no.
In meditating on many writers and philosophers and average Joe's, I've come to see that it is not about "works".
It's more a matter of saying that we are saved by faith, hope and love.
And when the world is distilled to such a simple view where prayers are not counted or tallied, and instead love and hope are joined hand in hand with faith, I cannot help but ask......how can you object to such a view of the world?
It's a view where these words make sense:
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. Galatians 5:6
The same could be said about these words, which look at the world from the "glass is half empty" viewpoint:
....if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2b
