Wanna be an Evangelical Minister? #9.

You who are eager to start your own church have noticed that our instructions always urge you to focus on “Salvation by faith.” Why do all who are in schisms focus on faith?

The Catholic side of Christianity focuses on salvation by works. They are always quoting James, “Faith without works is dead.” You know what Catholics do, of course. They have holy sisters and brothers who spend their entire lives in prayer, obedience, poverty, celibacy, obedience, teaching, working in orphanages, hospitals, things like that.

Frankly, that makes us look bad. When we go on and on about The Great Commandment, “The most important thing we can do is believe in Jesus and The Bible.”, those monks and nuns are actually striving to live like Jesus did, being obedient to The Father, doing good works to actually help the poor and downtrodden.

Every time we zoom off to important conferences in our Personal Lockheed Mission Jets, we fly over schools, hospitals, leper colonies, orphanages, monasteries, and convents where holy men and women are actually doing things to help people.

How do we respond when asked “Aren’t Catholics who do good works doing more than we who just say “We are saved by faith, alone?” We ignore them! We pay no attention at all! We just repeat The Great Commandment: “The most important thing we can do is believe In Jesus and The Bible.”
It isn’t much, but what else can we do?
