We are saved by faith and works, in a manner of speaking

 Catholic doctrine says:

...we are therefore said to be justified gratuitously, because none of those things that
precede justification, whether faith or works, merit the grace of justification. (Trent VI, Chapter VIII)

Therefore, it is true, that we are saved by faith and works, but only in a manner of speaking.

Our faith does not save, we don't save ourselves.
Our works do not save, we don't save ourselves.

God saves those who demonstrate their faith in works of love. God grants eternal life to those who keep His Commandments.

Romans 2:13
(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Finding the Fullness of Faith

To be deep in history

ETK@De Maria

No, pagan Rome couldn’t destroy Christianity (what I believe)
DM-That is true. Pagan Rome could not destroy the Catholic Church.
ETC-so the emperor Constantine brought it on as the official religion mixed with paganism.
DM-Nope. St. Constantine's mom, St. Helen, had converted to Catholicism. Since, Catholics were enemies of the state, in order to avoid from having to prosecute his own mom, St. Constantine made Catholicism one of the official religions. He later converted.
ETC-GO AND READ HISTORY. Not catholic history. Unbelievable
DM-I've read history from every angle. Only the Protestants adhere to this cocamamie story you just repeated.

Baptism is for us and for our children

 ETC said:Acts 16 verse 32 And they spake unto him the word of the lord and to all that were in the house. Ummmmmm last time I spoke to my 3 month old they had NO IDEA what I’m saying. Let alone the gospel.

DM-Therefore you denied your child entrance into the Kingdom of God? That's like saying, "Hey, the kid didn't understand that he shouldn't play in the middle of the highway. Therefore, I left him there." In denying your child entrance into the Kingdom of God, you have rejected the gift of the Holy Spirit indwelling his soul and therefore given him over to Satan. Pray that your child doesn't die before he can make a profession of faith.
ETC-I’m done with you. This just shows u want to argue. ur a heretic end of story. Repent of ur pagan Rome beliefs before it’s too late.
DM-The Catholic Church is the Church that Jesus established and the instrument through which He speaks to the world. Repent of your sins and run to the Catholic Church, you and your household, before its too late.
