MYTH #19 Catholics try to work their way to heaven

Catholics believe what is stated in Ephesians 2:8-12, we are saved by Grace alone "through" faith, we also believe that Faith without words is dead (James 2:24)

The bible isnt "either or" it is "and and with".

The bible talks about good works and that they are apart of having and living your faith.

Also anywhere in the bible were it discusses judgment it mentions our judgment will be based on our works and what we have done.

Matthew 5:16
So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

John 10:32
Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me?

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus in good works, which God hath prepared that we should walk in them.

1 Timothy 2:10
But as it becometh women professing godliness, with good works.

1 Timothy 6:18
To do good, to be rich in good works, to give easily, to communicate to others,

Revelations 22:12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to every man according to his works.
