Well, salvation isn’t dependent on people’s works (Ephesians 2:8,9); but, their works are an indication they don’t have it.

I disagree, works are essential.

In Matt 25:31-46 are many examples of doing good works, proclaimed by Jesus Christ. There is the separation of the sheep from the goats which relate to, the feeding of the hungry, clothing of the naked, visiting the sick and those imprisoned, and more. Notice that both the sheep and the goats believed, but only the sheep did good works. In verse 46, Jesus cautioned as to what will be the reward of those who do not do these things, and of those who do, “And these will go into everlasting punishment, but the just into everlasting life.”

Both faith and works are important. And of course those that sold out for abortion will never escape the justice of God.
