I am not aware that there are any. Salvation by grace through faith does not require animal sacrifices.
Ok. Do you make any distinction between a consequence and a punishment?
I don’t doubt it, but this is not what the Church teaches.
It is true that, since the sacraments are avenues of grace not available to Protestants, it is more of an uphill battle. But the “likelihood” of anyone getting saved is not for us to determine. Protestants are left with only part of the divine revelation, and do not have access to the fullness of faith. That being said, I think that there are a great many Protestants that do more with the less they have. God judges people based on what they do with what they received. According to the polls, the vast majority of American Catholics spurn the blood that bought them, and don’t embrace the teachings of the Apostles that were entrusted to the Church. They are in a much worse condition that Protestants, as their last condition is much worse than the first!
Sacraments are gifts from God that help us get to heaven. God does not need them, people do. God can save whoever He likes, however He wants, and has always done.
I think that Scripture is clear that these were not salvific.
No, there is nothing we can do to earn salvation.
You won’t get an argument from me about that!
LOL ok, if you say so.
If Jesus says we must forgive others their trespasses, or the Father will not forgive ours, what is that?
