St. Irenaeus Contra Faith Alone
MHFM: St. Irenaeus, an important early Church father, wrote about AD 180. His writings are filled with statements that contradict the false gospel of faith alone and once saved always saved. Below is just one example. After quoting Galatians 5 and 1 Corinthians 6, he states:
St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, Book V, Chap. 10: “He [St. Paul] shows in the clearest manner through what things it is that man goes to destruction, if he has continued to live after the flesh…”
It’s astounding that so many people embrace the heresies of faith alone and Protestantism when those ideas are not only patently opposed to the clear teaching of Scripture but also the obvious witness of the early Christian fathers.
My mind is blown. I really respect your work…
Yes, this proves you correct. There is no real fear of God in these people and also no strong conviction about the inerrancy of Scripture and the magisterial teaching of the Church. They need to go to your website and learn, learn, learn, and become Catholic. As you say the root of the problem is the denial of the authentic salvation doctrine of the Church by almost all "traditionalists" and by those they continue to call their pope and hierarchy.
