Yes, but you're playing by fundamentalist Christian rules which is "Bible only". Not everything is found in the Bible, there are also sacred traditions and church teachings which you are choosing to ignore. On whose authority do you discard those teachings, and why?Eucharist is not found in the NT. Neither is the term "sacraments". And since they are referring to something not specified as such for doing them, they should be shunned.
Simple, Catholics DON'T say they are saved. They say they HOPE to be saved, it is something they strive towards all their lives rather than pronouncing themselves "saved" after reading the sinner's prayer. Again, you should not be comparing fundamentalist teachings to traditional teachings.So if you have to do them yet to be saved, how can you say you are saved?
Catholics are not Bible-only Christians. These rules apply to your brand of Christianity only.This is why I have a hard time with them because the definitions from the scripture would describe them as works that deny Him and thus are an iniquity in and of itself.
What about James 2:17, which says that faith without works is dead?In any event, works cannot accompany salvation les they say Jesus Christ was unable to as our Saviour.
Again, there is no need to do this, Catholics do not believe in sola scriptura.Please find the scripture that states we are to "celebrate" at communion.
