It was always God's plan.
There are no distinctions in the Church

Despite whatever divisions we put up, there are no divisions in God.

Salvation is Free

It is from God.

It's not a matter of salvation. It's a matter of wisdom.
Living in a way that values the other person.
(e.g. Having a Dry Wedding when a guest is a Recovering Alcoholic)
