    I count 2. There are:

    CH3-CH2-CH2-CH3: n-butane

    (CH3)3CH: isobutane

    In the book of James in the New Testament you can find a quote that goes something like this: "Faith without works is dead". Yet in still another new testament place you find that "Salvation comes through faith and not of works, lest any man should boast." Do these two contradict one another? I do not think so. If you used your sincere faith today to accept Jesus and died an instant later without time for good works, you would still go to heaven just like the thief on the cross. On the other hand, if you say you are a christian, and you live like the devil then more than likely, the truth is not in you. The good book says we can tell a tree by the fruit it bears. If someone were truly saved for any length of time, starting out as a spiritual baby, good works would begin to appear and works of the devil would certainly diminish and ultimately go away. But we all need to grow. Always.
