The Sacraments are fountains of grace

    De Maria,
    You are right that Romanism, at the end of the day teaches that the sacraments can’t guarantee one’s salvation. If I can approach the Eucharist thousands of time in my life and die in a state of mortal sin, then I lose.

    That is correct, Robert. The Sacraments are fountains of grace which help us to withstand temptation and achieve righteousness. But God does not give away salvation without suffering and trials:
    1 Peter 1:7
    That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

    Romans 8:17
    And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

    1 Peter 2:21
    For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

    Sincerely,

    De Maria
