We received salvation through grace alone, no number or types of works will get us there. Great thought provoking post. Merry Christmas!
The other day, I read an article about Mother Teresa. It included a quote from her, writing of her struggle with depression:
The loneliness of the heart that wants love is unbearable. – Where is my faith? – Even deep down, right in, there is nothing but emptiness & darkness…. I am told God loves me – and yet the reality of darkness & coldness & emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul.
That is so sad. She accomplished such great things for the Lord, but we don’t know if she was saved. So many well-meaning, hardworking people such as Mormons or Catholics don’t know the truth about salvation. Mother Teresa may have believed in works-based salvation, which means she thought she could get to heaven by doing good things. The Bible says otherwise:
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: – Romans 3:10
