Proposed Syllogism

love is the fulfilling of the law - Romans 13:10
by works of the law no human being will be justified - Romans 3:20
justification cannot be based upon Love (as Roman Catholics claim justifying faith is faith formed by love, or faith & love)

  1. but faith, hope, and love are supernatural virtues- they are already a gift of God. And these gifts, God's grace, are the fulfillment of the law. At any rate, perhaps you shouldn't teach about Catholicism, lol.

    Instead, here's some Balthasar: "Before you exert yourself, be aware that before God every exertion is but a game of grace, a game that is not of itself important but that grace draws into the sphere of the important. Allow the tension of your efforts to be enfolded by the relaxed abandonment of a child's helpless faith" (Grain of Wheat, 43).
