(Not sure which forum to post in).
I love the hymn, “In Christ Alone.” I think it is a Protestant hymn because I have not seen it in any Catholic hymnals. In addition, I think that the theology of the last verse may not be consistent with Catholic teaching? I am going to be a new Catholic, and I want to understand what Catholic teaching IS on this matter. For reference, I will write what the last verse says:
“No guilt in life, no fear in death. This is the power of Christ in me.
From life’s first cry to final breath Jesus controls my destiny.
No power of hell no scheme of man can ever pluck me from his hand.
'Til He returns or calls me home, her ein the power of Christ I’ll stand.”
The words are not from the Bible (except maybe the third line). They seem to support “once saved always saved”
