That should be a reasonable conclusion, for many people believe they are saved because they believed. Thats saying you are saved because of your work. Thats not scriptural
I think we agree that the reasonable, scriptural conclusion is that salvation is not by works, and therefore it's not scriptural for a man to say he is saved because of his work and it is scriptural then, that a man is saved by something other than work.
Is it reasonable to say then, that a man is saved without the work that, in your OP, is believing/faith?
