Please post where St. Paul mentions "faith alone". The only place I see "faith alone" it is rejected as a means of justification:James 2:24King James Version24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
Who says, "I'm saved by faith alone?" (an attitude of pride which contradicts Scripture) And who says, "I judge no myself, but Christ is my Judge?" (the Catholic attitude and the one found in Scripture )1 Corinthians 4:2-4King James Version2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
That goes against Scripture. Here's what Scripture says: Hebrews 5:13For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.So, you should grow up. Yes, God wants us to be perfect as He is perfect. And yes, we can be thus. Jesus says:Matthew 19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.Do you have enough faith to obey Christ on His Command to be perfect? Do you think that if you do your best to be perfect and yet fail, that Christ will condemn you for it? Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
