And we believe you are perishing and we are trying to help and enlighten you.
Where will it stop? It's painfully obvious the people in this chat are staunch followers of their Faith, and neither will yeild. Which means more animosity will be the only outcome.
Demonstrate what you believe from the bible and people will listen. Use Roman Catholic sources that lack any credibility outside of Rome and your argument will be far less than persuasive.
Show me that grace is received through the sacraments or disprove that grace is received by faith and faith that comes from hearing Gods word. Note hearing Gods word not the opinions of so called early church fathers selected by Rome as oracles of knowledge regarding God.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 ¶ For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
For the cause of Christ
