On Faith and Works

   
St. Augustine
Translated and Annotated by Gregory J. Lombardo, C.S.C., S.T.D.

No. 48 of Ancient Christian Writers: The Works of the Fathers in Translation

“Augustine himself tells us why he wrote this work. Certain laymen, he says, had sent him some writings to be examined. These writings taught that good works were not necessary to obtain eternal life, that faith alone was sufficient for salvation. If a man had the faith and was baptized, he would be saved. Consequently, every man without exception should be admitted to baptism, no matter how evil his life, and even though he had no intention of changing for the better. Moreover, the instructions given to candidates for baptism should consist only in dogmatic truths, that is, only in those truths which one must believe as distinguished from those which one must put into practice. This, in short, is the error which Augustine undertakes to refute in this book.”
