Protestantism is false, man-made, and not Christian at all. It has led countless souls to Hell forever.
Outside the Roman Catholic church, there is no salvation.
I can't tell you how many protestant ministers I see on TV saying the protestant faith is the one true faith and all Catholics will go to hell.
These are the same protestant ministers that are caught cheating on their wives or having homosexual affairs. They are also the ones in jail for embezzling millions of dollars from their followers.
These protestant ministers like to judge others and at the same time they are the most corrupt people on the face of the earth!
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
What about Orthodox Christianity?
All of you Christers will more than likely end up with Jesus for eternity enjoying the fate of Gittin 57A.
Time to Hide!
I agree that Protestantism is false, but before you completely dismiss faith alone, please watch this short eight minute video:
Surely we can agree that both modern Catholicism and essentially all modern Protestant denominations are completely corrupt and evil.
Oh great one, both Judaism and Christianity have been captured by the money changers. Especially the Catholic faith tied to the Vatican as far as Christianity goes. .
Time to Hide!
Yeah, the Catholics now seem to serve as auxiliaries to Talmudic Jews.
No, they are exactly like the Jews. Almost every admonishment Jesus had for the Jews also directly applies to Catholics. Jesus is God and He foreknew. That's why in the next sentence after telling pastors not to call themselves Rabbis and Masters, He also said do not call yourself Father. Since He was talking about religion, as cited by using the word Rabbi, we know He was talking about religion, and not our biological fathers according to the flesh. They also make God's commandments of null effect by their traditions of men. They also don't know a thing about how to truly get saved. Nor do they even believe the Bible.
The same is true for the protestants as well.
Most every organized religion has been infiltrated, to guarantee the damnation of billions of souls, by teaching work salvation. Take note that all the TV preachers believe in salvation by works, rather than by faith. The Bible is clear: salvation is by faith alone. Just read every instance in the New Testament where it says either "faith" or "believe", you'll find that it is by faith or belief only, not by works. Jesus even says it Himself many times, Thy faith have saved thee.
Paul seems to say this, presumably as a convenient marketing ploy, but even he tries to sneak works in the back door by implying that if you had faith you would be a generally good person. Jesus and James stress the importance of works. See James 2, for example.
They are simply saying that even though you have faith, if you don't have works, then you are not working for God or your brethren. Faith without works is dead, but that sentence alone proves that faith without works is a state which exists. Read it again. Faith without works is dead, but that tells you that a condition of faith without works exists. Faith does exist without works. It is faith which justifies us. If it is about work then no one can get into heaven, obviously, cause the only perfect person is God in the form of Jesus. People don't get that? He is saying even though you have faith, you are inactive. If you have no works, you are inactive. It means the person isnt working. That's all it means. He wants you to get out and do work, but understand that isnt what justification is. They are two different things, and Paul makes it clear, there is a distinction.
Now if you believe that there is a different Holy Spirit directing (inspiring) Paul, from the ones that Jesus and James, the brother of Jesus had, then you are mistaken. If the scripture is not consistent from Genesis to Revelation, then it is not the Word of God. But it is consistent. You just think they are saying two different things when they are consistently saying the same thing. Paul and Jesus and James cannot contradict one another in any way. Otherwise God is not God, because that would be an error in His Word.

The passage clearly indicates that faith without works is useless and in fact not proper faith since faith is perfected through works.
