What did St Paul mean by Faith and Works of the Law?

St Paul's ideas have been a point of division for Catholics and Protestants, but is there really a division in practice? Christian Counselors can play a big role in removing the confusion.  If you would like to learn how to become a Christian Counselor, then review the program

Faith and works, right? But have you ever met a Protestant or Evangelical who insists that we are saved by “faith alone”?

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

This is a very insightful article.  While authored from a Catholic perspective, be not to quick, if Protestant, to judge it harshly because it is written from a very ecumenical view.  It presents the ideas of Justification and Works and the meaning of the Law.

Non-Denomitional Christians may be very surprised to learn in this article that the Catholic Church does not believe justification is by one’s own works but only through Christ.

Please, read this article because I truly believe this difference is not as great as Catholics and Protestants believe, but instead show a very similar ideal, namely- Both groups believe justification is only attainable via Christ through faith and works–works that are devoid if not filled with faith and love for Christ through His grace and of no merit by our own actions.

Christian Counselors from both persuasions on the topic I believe sometimes become to encamped into their own theology on Paul–pushing an extreme that believes one side denies the value of the law and the other side believes in self justification.  This is farther from the truth!  I believe no Protestant believes one can faith in Christ and not follow the law, and I believe no Catholic believes one can merit one’s own salvation via his own works.  Scripture supports neither extreme.

I would like this article to serve as a dialogue and I will post it as one within Christian counseling groups with the intent to promote discussion and realize the unity between Catholics and Protestants in this theology.
