God only grants eternal life to those who merit salvation

    Uh oh! You went and did it again, De Maria! You used a very naughty word for protestants: “Merit”. The sad thing is that they accuse Catholics of believing in works salvation, which is taught in the Scriptures. Yet, they practice it themselves and then claim that their works are only good because they are ordained so by their faith. But isn’t this a Catholic position? Don’t we put our Faith in God when we follow what he has told us to do?
    Protestants seem to make it appear as though Catholic “pick and choose’ what we think are good works and then keep score somehow, and that this “merit system” is what we utilize to get into heaven! I don’t understand why they think this other than reading the polemic words of Martin Luther.

    God Bless
