Without obedience to the commandments producing  personal knowledge of Christ's self-revelation in his death on the cross, there is no sustainable faith.

Doing Good comes naturally to those who love God.  I don't know that doing good is required of us, or demanded of us, but a desire  to do good just naturally follows in the hearts and minds of those who follow Christ. 

God is an invention of early man. It isn't possible to love the stupid thing.

A strong "Yes" if works include the confirmation of Jesus' promise: "You will see much greater things" than what is, in effect, a Biblical hearsay. (John 1: 47-51)

Faith is proven knowledge of God's will in your life, and works are proof that your faith is real.  One without the other is useless. 

Faith shows that you care, and Godly works show that you care enough to do as you should.

What you do discloses what you think. We are wisest when we keep a good eye to history and learn from their mistakes.

Love is the only way faith can work. Doing so many good deeds that God will be obligated to save us is not how faith works. We can produce neither the quality nor quantity of work needed for salvation. That required the death of someone who lived a perfect life and never sinned.
