    Yes the Bible says you are saved by faith alone in EPhesians 2;8
    You catholics are teaching works and are going to hell
    You are silly to think that not eating cookies helps you get saved

    First, the word alone does not appear in that passage.

    Catholics don't need to "explain" this verse, we believe it. We can't earn our salvation, it is a free gift - well, free to us, paid for by the awesome and infinitely valuable Blood of our Lord.

    That passage does not teach that we are saved by faith alone or works, but by grace alone, and faith does not even originate from us, but it is also a gift from God. This is Paul's point. Predestination comes into play in this passage.

    And since faith is a gift from God we still have the responsibility by our own free will to put our faith into action. James says faith without works are dead. (2:20) But if you believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ then make sure you thank God for that gift of Faith by living a life of thanksgiving and obedience to HIM.

    "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Eph. 2:10)

    Explain Matthew chapter 25 and 7:21-27, Revelation 20:12 and James 2:26

    I think he makes a lot of very valid points in that film.

    It amazes me how many of you guys claim to be non-believers, but when you have a tragedy in your lives who do you turn to.
    Everyone has a right to his/her beliefs so leave them alone.

    I wish that those mother fukkers that come knocking on my door on Sunday mornings would follow this rule.
