SALVATION: Error versus Truth

The Catholic Church Teaches (ERROR)

11. Sanctifying grace is a quality of the soul, a supernatural disposition that perfects the soul [RC Catechism 1999-2000].

1999 The grace of Christ is the gratuitous gift that God makes to us of his own life, infused by the Holy Spirit into our soul to heal it of sin and to sanctify it. It is the sanctifying or deifying grace received in Baptism. It is in us the source of the work of sanctification:48

Therefore if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself.49

2000 Sanctifying grace is an habitual gift, a stable and supernatural
disposition that perfects the soul itself to enable it to live with God, to act by his love. Habitual grace, the permanent disposition to live and act in keeping with God’s call, is distinguished from actual graces which refer to God’s interventions, whether at the beginning of conversion or in the course of the work of sanctification.

48 Cf. Jn 4:14; 7:38-39.
49 2 Cor 5:17-18.

The Bible Teaches (TRUTH)

Grace is the undeserved favour of God (Ephesians 1:7,8).

7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 
8  Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; ~ Ephesians 1:7,8 

Soli Deo Gloria
