Protestant teachers are still spreading the fundamental error that faith only is of consequence and that works must follow naturally upon faith.  This doctrine is certainly not true but it is so seductive in appearance that it has succeeded in fascinating quite other intellects than that of Luther (e.  g.  the minds of Socrates and Plato): though the plain evidence and experience of our daily life prove the contrary.  The most assured knowledge and faith cannot give us either the strength or the dexterity required for action or the practice in that subtle and complicated mechanism which is a prerequisite for anything to be changed from an idea into action.  Then I say let us first and foremost have works!  That is doing doing doing!  The necessary faith will come later—be certain of that!
