“All told, the sad fact, which is testified to both doctrinally and empirically, is that there is seldom found salvation within Rome”
Of course you use the word Rome to represent your own distorted perception.
“...and the power of the church for salvation, rather than contrite repentant faith in Christ and His sinless shed blood.”
How can you have contrite repentant faith in Christ and not attempt to live by His Laws?
“How can you have contrite repentant faith in Christ and not attempt to live by His Laws?”
They do. If you overall don’t, then you don’t have contrite repentant faith. Not all who call themselves evangelical or born again do, and an overall unChristian life disqualifies them from claiming saving faith, although statistically it is evangelicals who typically manifest far more evidence of regeneration than those whom the Roman Catholic Institution calls members.
