Well, alot of Catholics i know (mostly on my father's side) are what i guess you could call "loose" in their faith. By that i mean they take advantage of grace. They are the types that willingly go out and sin on Fridays and Saturdays, and repent on Sundays... repeat, repeat. I'm not making a generalization, i've just witnessed a number of "these" Catholics (i don't really know how you coin them).

Anyways, i find that to go against what the Word of God says...


Romans 5:20-21

But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.



Romans 6:1-2

What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?



Granted, there are a number (and i'm not going to quote because i don't know) of Catholics out there that are avid about their faith. That is, they aren't necessarily legalistic, but they are considered fervent when it comes to their beliefs and the practice thereof. Always intrigued me.


PS, just curious (legit question)... where did you obtain this notion that protestants don't repent/ask for forgiveness?
