Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy - Two 'Rights' Making Us Wrong

Doing both the easy answer?

I think this idea is not very well supported by Scripture:
"the Orthopraxy group want people to first do the right behaviors, then they will come to believe the right things at which point they will belong to the Church."

There's not much Biblical support for the notion of faith arising out of works. Matthew 7:24-27 perhaps comes closest, but can't possibly outweigh the verses indicating that faith/belief must precede the works.

That said, we can trust that good works will flow naturally out of those who have truly devoted their minds and hearts to the Lord, meaning both O's are appropriate for believers.
