Romans 16:19 This is because what is known about God should be plain to them because God made it plain to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities—God’s eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, because they are understood through the things God has made. So humans are without excuse.

If Rob believed that they were indeed salvific, why did he say that it was 'probably unnecessary'? Salvific, but probably unnecessary?

I suppose they'd call me a hypocrite, probably behind my back because I own the company and they might be hesistant to say it to my face...then again, some of my employees are pretty outspoken and yell at me for being too lenient on some of the less hardworking employees.

By my works. If you don't have works, do you have faith? If you don't have faith, are you saved?
Faith AND works brother.

Works are a RESULT of faith. "Show me...and I will SHOW YOU MY FAITH BY MY WORKS." Jesus said,'They shall know you BY YOUR WORKS.'

One who REALLY believes in Jesus (faith) will FOLLOW Jesus into doing good deeds/works.

These are Christians, first you have to be able to tell who is a Christian.
Clay says he can't tell if one is a Christian or not.. can you?
Besides that only Jesus can make one a Christian, not works.
Jesus is telling Christians that He will send them to everlasting punishment for not taking care of the least of His brothers. Don't you believe ALL Christians are going to heaven no matter what?

Hey Anthony,

I am NOT a faith alone believer....

It is...FAITH WITHOUT WORKS is DEAD.....

"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."

Any declaration of faith that does NOT result in a changed life and good works giving God the Glory is a false declaration: A dead faith!

Would you say that pasting salacious stories about Catholics on this board is an example of 'good deeds/works'?

..(lol)Brainwashed!.. No my good friend Robert, that is what people say about religious people. You just had it backwards.
Its obvious people of faith can't stand being questioned. It all stems from growing up in the church. I remember I was there back in the day. They teach that. Religion class, never ask questions, wait until math or spelling and ask all the questions you like.........about math or spelling.

Wrong churches, Michael. I've never gone to one where I was not allowed to ask questions...and I got answers, too.

No. None of the protestants I know up here presume to make that judgement about another Christian. And yes, the protestants I know consider Catholics as fellow Christians.

And you Michael, need to understand that the Catholic Church, the Catholics on this forum and the majority of Catholics throughout the world, do not "fit into" or believe the "exaggerated, overstated and disproportionated" hyped-up statistics that you are "forever" (digging up). You say you don't care what I believe--but as I told you before---"you do care" because otherwise---you wouldn't still be on this forum. and you would be off somewhere living in the "same old bondage" of anti-catholic hatred for Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church........The fact is that it (bugs you) that you can't get ANYONE to believe ANY--yes---ANY CATHOLIC, to accept your anti-catholic vengeance, hostility and "blown out of portion" statistics....... Correction Michael--but I am Orthodox Roman Catholic and you are the Prodigal Son (social, ex-Catholic--or is it atheist or agnostic now!! Bad news?? Yes--(for you) at least for the time being----- until like the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11 when he eventually -----"came to his senses"!!!
HOJO says...

not "fit into" or believe the "exaggerated, overstated and disproportionated" hyped-up statistics.

MICHAEL says....

.....Since Camden NJ ROMAN CATHOLIC ""Bishop Joseph Galante"" began merging South Jersey parishes three years ago in what has become a model for dioceses nationwide, Mass attendance has fallen substantially, according to data provided by the diocese.

....One of the factors that determined the mergers was the poor finances of the parishes, about one third of which could not pay their bills, the bishop said.

I think its time that catholics start paying more to support their churches.

So if you claim to have faith in Christ and your lifestyle reflects the complete opposite no one would question your faith?

Also, James does not judge anyone one either. He says faith without works is dead. If your lifestyle doesn't reflect your faith you are spiritually dead. You do not have the faith that saves because your lifestyle shows you don't.

James is not adding works to salvation. He is saying if you claim to have faith, it should be apparent in your lifestyle because we both know it is Christ that works through Christians.
