Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Re: Calvinists Against the Manhattan Declaration

Well, at last you admit that you either don't understand the Gospel or else you don't believe it.  Roman Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox preach justification by works.  The Gospel stands or falls with the doctrine of justification by faith ONLY.  Sola fide.   Luther said that.  The Protestant Reformation is a call to return to the Scriptures and stop following the traditions of men.  Jesus condemned the Pharisees for preaching "traditions" rather than Scripture.  I stand with Jesus and against false prophets like you.

How horrible of them to combine Catholics, Orthodox, and Evangelicals all under the umbrella category of "Christians"!    They should be ashamed!   Don't they know that only Calvinists can be true Christians?
