Is Matthew 16:27 teaching work based salvation. Do not provide other verses . Explain this one first ?

One: you are never going to sort out possible Bible difficulties if you isolate passages and force them to mean something apart from the rest of Scripture. Best way to resolve a possible Bible difficulty is study out the context and then related passages.

Two: the Scriptures do not contradict themselves. The whole Bible fits together. It won’t teach certain doctrines clearly all throughout the Bible and then contradict itself in another passage. Any seeming contradiction has to be interpreted in light of all of God’s Word.

But in this case it is actually an easy verse to interpret.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

The lost will be judged at the Great White Throne judgement for their wicked deeds (ie. rewarded with punishment, eternal damnation); and the saved  are going to be rewarded on their faithfulness and service to the Lord Jesus Christ (such as receiving various crowns when He returns).

Agreeing with Jerry, in the first instance it is an unreasonable and unbiblical request, but in any case we need to look at the verse.

Mat 16:27  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Would you show us where this verse mentions salvation AT ALL?

It mentions a reward for works, but it doesn't mention salvation. And if you think it is talking about salvation, then show it WITHOUT providing other verses. You see how unreasonable that is?

If you will allow other verses to be used we can easily show the exact judgement of works. You might consider 1 Cor 3: 11-15 and Rev 20:11-15.

The fuses on this 3.5hp motor are larger than chart 301-16 allows for your wire size. Don't go to any other portion of the NEC until you explain this WITHOUT referencing other pertainant portions of the code book.

 

This airframe has more mass than the surrounding air. How will it get off the ground. You may deal with gravity but not any other aspect of physics or aerodynamics until you handle the first question to my satisfaction.

 

The steel in this hull is denser than the surrounding water and yet our submersible vessel is suspended 600 feet below the surface and 1500 feet above the seabed. While only dealing ONLY with the water density and the hull weight and density explain how this can be.

 

 

Sorry, your request is not any more reasonable than the 3 examples above. There are other passages that reflect directly upon the one you give.

Another example --- "Thou shalt not kill" Does it mean no eating animals or that there are not any justifiable cases of killing another human? Please do not use other verses dealing with eating meat or Jesus saying "Thou shalt do no murder"
