The Holy Bible
(2 Tim 3:16) "All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness."

(Eph 2:8-9) "For by grace are ye
saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of
God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (2 Tim 1:9) "…(God)
hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to
