Controversy JosephG asks a relevant question. Sola fide means just that. It's an assumption to say that "all saving graces" will accompany saving faith. Better to say that believers should naturally progress in sanctification, but we cannot declare a person's justification void simply because we don't believe they have been sanctified enough.

reply to JosephG JosephG, please listen to the sermon again. Justification is by faith alone. But saving faith in Christ is always accompanied by all other saving graces. Thanks, Rev. Hines
Salvation by faith or works? Is not salvation by faith alone? Or does it depend on "Lordship?" How good must ones Lordship be for it to count?
