[quote=michaelp]I don’t think this this option is fair.
“By faith alone. I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Then I can sin all I want and it won’t matter. I don’t have to do any works of love or pray or anything. I can do what I want.”
It shows a great lack of understanding of the Evangelical postition.
Remember, when presenting the postition of another, do it in such a way that they would listen to it and say, “That is exactly what we believe.” Otherwise, it is the very definition of a straw man.
I am looking for an honest answer. Do all Catholics really believe that this is a fair discription of the Evangelical postition of how a person is saved?
I want to understand the evangelical position, but I’m unclear. As I said on two other threads, I don’t understand what the consequences of sin are to a saved non-Catholic. I’m not bating, I genuinely want to know.
If all sin is not equal, there must be some consequence for serious sin. Please answer me here or in the one of the other threads. forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=30349
If you’ve already answered elsewhere, please direct me to that thread.
Thanks and God Bless,
