Salvation is by faith and works of love

DS:You can't earn salvation by your works or law keeping. By the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Romans 2:13

King James Version (KJV)

13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

James 2:24

King James Version (KJV)

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Ephesians 2:8-9

King James Version (KJV)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:10

King James Version (KJV)

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Perhaps you need to re-read the bold part.
Perhaps you need to read Scripture:

Philippians 3

King James Version (KJV)

But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Now, lets correlate the Scriptures to the Catholic doctrine:
Romans 8:4

King James Version (KJV)

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law,Colossians 1:24

King James Version (KJV)

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:

for whom I have suffered
Romans 8:17

King James Version (KJV)

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

the fellowship of his sufferings,

1 Thessalonians 5:8-10

King James Version (KJV)

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

that I may win Christ,

Catholic sacraments isn't how one is saved by the blood of Christ.
Yes, it is:

Mark 16:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

One is saved by grace through faith.
That describes the Sacraments.

That's how the blood is applied, not by the performance of rituals. You're only deceiving yourself.
You are being deceived by the enemy:

Hebrews 10:25-31

King James Version (KJV)

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

The way you can twist things is truly amazing. Catholics sacraments have nothing to do with God but their great for keeping deceived Catholics in bondage to what they call "the church." You are trying to be saved both by the law and grace. You kind of remind of some of the Messianic Jews I've heard who have one foot in each testament trying to be saved by the law.
You remind me of a saying from Scripture:
2 Timothy 4:3-4

King James Version (KJV)

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.


De Maria
