On the Journey with Matt and Ken, Episode 34:
A Damning System of Works Righteousness, Part XVIII
Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley conclude their series on the Catholic view of justification and the Reformation doctrine of “faith alone” by looking at one of the most controversial and misunderstood parts of the debate: the concept of merit.
Do Catholics believe they need to earn their salvation? At the end of time, does God merely look at a list of our good deeds and bad deeds, and judge us according to the balance? Matt and Ken look at what the Catholic Church actually teaches about the idea of “merit,” an idea that is often misunderstood even by Catholics.
