Is Sincerity Sometimes Enough?

Fri, 15 Jun 2007 13:15:00 CST

Denominationalists have long called for union and tolerance of doctrine error, and vain religious practices. The common claim is that as long as one is sincere, he is accepted by God. This is not true. There is a litmus test for acceptance by God, abiding in truth!

Catholic Attitudes Toward Authority
