I am particularily confused about the sacraments of christianity. Where in the bible does it point that God left us the sacraments that we have to do in the Church?
Also it is my understanding that people say sacraments are needed for salvation. Now, many churchs say that they don’t believe in the sacraments as Catholics do because they consider them “works”. I know that when I get the Eucharist or baptism at the altar then this might indeed look like a work, but in reality it is just doing a deed given by Gods grace.
I am aware that many other Churchs give out some kind of bread and drink, maybe not every Sunday but they do. So in my opinion although they might deny the term “Sacrament” I think that God looks at that as a sacrament.
Getting to the point, what I want to know is that when people say that you don’t have to “do” sacraments are they somewhat correct? Because from my understanding, if one dies without baptism, confirmation, etc… then they will still be baptised at death because they “want” it. So technically, if one hasn’t received the sacraments up front during their lifetime like Catholics, they will receive them at their death bed.
And why would there be an exception for priests then from the sacrament of marriage? Is that like an optional sacrament?
