The Bible Proves the Teachings of the Church: External Link - -

MANY people have misunderstood a handful of Bible verses, and have used those misunderstood verses to construct a false view of justification/salvation that contradicts the entire teaching of Jesus and the Bible. The Bible repeatedly teaches that man is not justified by faith alone, but that human deeds, in addition to faith, determine whether a man has justification and salvation. The Bible teaches that saintly men intercede with God (both on earth and after death), and that their intercession can impact how God will deal with other men. See free E-Book above, for more information and many Bible verses. A deeper understanding of the Bible corrects many misconceptions that people have on a variety of issues relating to true, authentic Christian faith, the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3).
