Justification occurs in baptism, and sanctifying grace the grace that saves is infused into him. According to Roman Catholicism, once a person is baptized and his original sin is removed, he must perform good works because they are also necessary for salvation.
Good works are necessary because Roman Catholicism denies justification by faith alone. Justification is the declaration of righteousness. It is where the righteousness of Christ is reckoned to the believer Phil. It is not by faith and something but by faith alone Rom. But, Roman Catholicism declares that if anyone believes in justification by faith alone in Christ alone, then he is to be cursed.

NEW WAYS FOR NEW CHRISTIANS
In Gal. They were adding works to the work of the Holy Spirit. Even though perplexed and somewhat confused by the proclamation, Mary believed and consented to being a part of this miraculous event Matthew , Luke Jesus was born in Bethlehem, not in the town of Nazareth, where the couple lived, because of a decree that went out from Emperor Augustus that everyone had to go to their hometown to be registered.
While they were in Bethlehem Mary gave birth to Jesus in rather humble surroundings because all of the inns were filled because of the large influx of people in town for the census taking Matthew , Luke The gospel of John looks at Jesus through a different lens, one that stresses His divinity.
