On the radio today, I again heard some representative of a Protestant church go on and on, railing, about “works”.
It’s a bogus matter: if you believe and have faith, this will be reflected in the way you treat people, in the way you act, in the (more positive) things you do.
I’m sure this idea might be more subtle than the radio talker might be able to grasp. . . but why does this false dichotomy or bogus argument keep getting repeated? One would think Protestants have heard the Catholic view on the matter.
Complementary to this, it’s always interesting to hear Protestants explain away fellow Protestant sinning by saying that they never really HAD grace or faith. . . they just THOUGHT they did.
