In Response To: Selassie I defends the Ethiopian Orthodox Faith *LINK* (King David)
This is for those who do not accept the teaching and writings of Paul in the New Testament.
taken from a radio interview with Dr. Oswald Hoffman at Christmas in Ethiopia 1968,
Dr Hoffman: "Your Majesty, how does it seem to you the Apostle Paul meant the statement, Faith works by love?"
H.I.M.: "What St. Paul said here is not a mistaken statement. You all know what St. Paul was and what kind of work he was engaged in before his conversion. Later on, after his conversion he had faith and love, and if he had that he would not have taught people this in his epistles. Neither love nor faith are seperable from each other. An elaboration of this is Paul's exposition in one of his Epistles which speak of love and faith. Without love all of our human efforts in the sight of God can be useless. He loved us and our behalf of love and His love for us that He accomplishes the act of Love."
