True! As a Catholic, we must go to Mass every Sunday and receive the Blessed Sacrament.
“But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?” James 2:20
“Do you see that faith worked along with his works, and by the works the faith was made perfect?” James 2:22
From the perspective of the Church, those Congress critters are doomed unless they run to the mercy of God. But...their arrogance will be their undoing.
Then again, what good work did the thief on the cross do?
He asked for mercy, if that is considered a work.
Anyway, basic Protestants don’t believe you get to sin all you please and go to heaven anyway.
We believe you must mortify sin. We just don’t believe that mortifying sin saves you.
