Again, that would be the Catholic Church which gives us all the Seven Sacraments.

THE OLD ADAM June 7, 2013 at 10:45 pm “The Church is where the gospel is proclaimed in it’s purity
That would be the Catholic Church. That why Scripture says: Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
and where the sacraments are administered in accordance with that gospel.”
Again, that would be the Catholic Church which gives us all the Seven Sacraments.
– Luther
I quote Scripture, you quote a rebellious priest.
Again. Being Christ centered and Word centered instead of (proper)organization, or human centered.
Those who listen to the Catholic Church listen to Chrtst who speaks through her.

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:
