There’s a Catholic I’m Facebook friends with. He’s extremely uncharitable with Protestants to the point it gets annoying. I’m a devout Catholic and am fully obedient to Holy Mother Church, but this doesn’t sound right.
“…Robert also corrects the common misunderstanding that Jesus paid the full legal payment for our sins on the Cross; He did not. Jesus paid for the way or the opportunity for reconciliation with God the Father. After all, if Jesus paid the full legal payment for our sins, no one would ever go to Hell, since payment for sins cannot be paid for a second time if it was truly paid for the first time.”
He has also said at some other point that we merit Heaven and “earn” salvation through good works and that Jesus’ role is opening the gates of Heaven only.
