Catholic Church Says / Bible Says:

  • Regarding Salvation

    Catholicism teaches
    Salvation is the lifelong process whereby God and men cooperate in securing of forgiveness of sin. This is achieved only after death (and/or cleansing from sin in purgatory), and is dependant on man's personal securing of objective righteousness before God; otherwise there would be no salvation.

    The Bible Teaches
    Salvation is an instant event upon ones admission that he is a sinner and believes (acknowledges) that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior at which time God lays one's sins on Him (imputation) and He lays on us His merited favor (grace).

"After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives". (Mark 14:26) Can you hear Jesus singing? Can you imagine that. A perfect Man with a perfect voice! Was he a bass or a tenor? Was there a down-home twang to his voice? Or was there an unwavering crystal pitch? Imagine further if He appeared on the "Jerusalem Idol" program. He'd be a sure winner. Wouldn't be close.

Did he close his eyes and sing to his Father? Or did he look into his disciples’ eyes and smile at their deep camaraderie?
My meditating on this is the result of John Piper's devotion app of yesterday. John said "O, I can hardly wait to hear Jesus sing! I think the planets would be jolted out of orbit if he lifted his native voice in our universe. But we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken; so, Lord, come on and sing". Some day soon I will have the amazing thrill of hearing That Voice. Will You? Accept Him to hear Him and join His song. Sounds great.

"Our culture has aged, our churches are big and empty and the church bureaucracy rises up, our rituals and our cassocks are pompous," the Cardinal said. "The Church must admit its mistakes and begin a radical change, starting from the Pope and the bishops. The paedophilia scandals oblige us to take a journey of transformation." (Archbishop, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini) The Independent.
