3. Salvation Through Good Works

Catholic Position

Even though incorporated into the Church, one who does not however
persevere in charity is not saved.

Scripture Says

Ephesians 2:8-9

8  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.

Titus 3:5

Not by works of righteousness
which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the
washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Romans 3:28

28  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.


  • On this point, the Catholic doctrine and scripture disagree.
    Indeed their teachings are mutually exclusive. Which will you choose?
