beam balance

As a background to this paragraph can you discuss the Roman Catholic teaching on sainthood and supererogatory works? What Scripture texts are sometimes used to defend the teaching that a Christian can do more than the moral law of God requires? How does the doctrine of supererogatory works undermine the sufficiency of Jesus Christ? How does repentance contradict this doctrine of supererogatory works? What encouragement can be found in this paragraph? Join Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle as they discuss WCF 16.4:
