I believe if you think that you are a real christian, you have to have other qualities other than faith in order to be saved

Nope, you cant be saved by just "faith alone" you also need to do good things and follow God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus. "You see that a man is justified (pronounced righteous before God) through what he does and not alone through faith [though works of obedience as well as by what he believes]." James 2:24 (New Living Translation)

Anybody rides a boat and goes to sea, it is almost the same. We have faith in the boat when we rode them to sea but we need to work that there is no hole in that faith for the boat not to sink. Pray that no storm that will come, sing with praise that no stone unseen beneath being struck. this is my laymans interpretation

i believe that FAITH alone cannot save us. like some saying said "nasa diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa" (The hope is in the God but the actions rely on us) so even if we have a strong faith that we will be save but we always do bad things for other people, i think not the Faith alone is the key for our salvacion...

during the lifetime of Jesus Christ's ministry, one man asked Him, "Lord what shall i do in order to be saved?" The Lord replied, "Obey the Commandments and follow me.."

if you believe in God truly and you have strong unwavering faith in Him, i think yes and thanks for adding me, i am a neophyte here.

Every religion teaches you to be good human being first.You need not have to be any special qualities to be saved.Just be good to yourself,do not act or think ill towards your fellow human beings.

I believe that faith and works are factors for our salvation. Works means worshipping God by truth and by spirit. Agree?

I believe no one can earn their way to heaven, although some will try. I believe it is by faith alone so no person can brag or boast. Gods love is so great that no human can imagine this love. Take care Wraithstriderwife.

No faith alone cannot save you as a christian you have to do the right thing according to the bible faith is only believing but doing the right thing is completely different again as some people do say that they have faith but are not doing the right thing accordingly to what the bible teaches.

There's nothing above the earth nor below the sky that can save you expect the name of Jesus. So to be saved you need to have Jesus in your life it can only happen when you receive Jesus by faith accepting that He has carried all your sins on the cross and has forgiven you. So baby its only by FAITH ALONE YOU CAN BE SAVED not by your good works or any other so and so things.
