St. Paul Against the Christian Churches’ Secular Activities

with 3 comments

2 Corinthians 9, 7: “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

It is a pity that so many Christian religious leaders, from Episcopalians to Roman Catholics, have decided to forget St. Paul’s message: one is saved by Grace, and not by (Divine) Law, let alone by human law. All their struggles to make politics follow their ethical rules, don’t really sound like something to be expected from people of Faith.

  1. Catholics do believe that salvation is by grace.

  2. The question is…does the Catholic hierarchy believe that too?

  3. The answer is yes. We cannot talk about salvation without discussing justification. How does God justify us to enter heaven? The Catechism of the Catholic Church declares “our justification comes from the grace of God” (# 1996).
