Praised be Jesus Christ, and another one gets it!
Time for him to convert to Catholicsm - why stop where he’s at before he passes - go for the FULLness of understanding Christ’s message.
Catholicsm does not have all the answers - any person who believes by faith is called a Christian - believer - saint by GOD ALMIGHTY. The most important thing is to be known by God as a Christian - believer - saint.... and not known by the label of Catholic...
Here is where God declares that a Christian - believer - saint is saved, justified by faith without the deeds of the law:
Romans 3:28: Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Romans 5:1: Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Galatians 2:16: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
Galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
II Corinthians 5:18: And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation
Here is where God calls ALL believers - Saints - which we all are today:
