Whether Mother Thereza is in heaven or hell only she will be able to tell. The only other person who knows will be God. However people very close to Mother Thereza will have an inkling where she might be headed.

According to the Bible, a Christian is saved by Grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Mother Thereza will be in heaven if she was in a state of grace when she died. However if she was in a state of sin, she will head to hell. Good works in front of God amounts to filthy rags. No one can be saved by good works. However for those who are saved by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, good works are a by-product of being saved. Every person who is saved will definitely do good works.

If these people would read the book or see the film on St. Teresa's life, they would know that Jesus is her Lord. Why? because she walked in Jesus's footsteps and treated people they way Jesus did. She showed us by her actions the fruit of her faith.
I'll bet some of the people here on this site who condemn her haven't done 1/8 of what Mother & Saint Theresa did for Jesus.
What you have done to the least of my brothers you have done to me~!
---Lisa on 8/28/07

this discussion begins to sicken me. Self-righeous talkers who havent done one hundrenth of the good M. Theresa did, try to condemn her because it pleases them to THINK they have some inside understanding of God. They make God small spiteful, vindictive, vengeful, etc. all nice human traits they are most familiar with.
---sherry on 8/28/07

Her love was beyond reproach She could not do enough for her Jesus.Her love for suffering Humanity was that of a mother.she tended sick,disease ridden, broken destitute bodies of humanity & relived the "good samaratin"Those who revile qualify for the words of Jesus "judge not"On Sept 4th a book is being released "Mother Teresa Come be my Light"Letters she wrote over the 66 years she served Her divine Master.
---Emcee on 8/27/07

Debbie, read Matthew 25, especially from verses 31 onward.

Do you honestly believe that this message is for the unbelievers of other religions? Or for the Jews alone?

If so are you suggesting that those who do not believe in Christ can enter heaven by doing good works? Or that a true Christian should be lazy and worthless to show his faith?
---lorra8574 on 8/27/07

Debbie, and others who think her way. Be very careful that you are not condemning Mother Theresa for her obedience to God.

It is one thing if you are uncertain about a theological stance, but to condemn her for working hard in the fields of the Lord is a damnable error should it lead others astray.

I have never heard Mother Theresa say that she was working hard to "earn" her salvation.
---lorra8574 on 8/27/07

There are many good people in this world who does not know Christ as their Lord and Savior. Not saying Mother Theresa was one of them. We can do many wonderful things in the flesh. We see many celebrities, almost daily, doing many extravagant, things for the poor and unfortunate. Do they know Christ as their Lord and Savior? I would be willing to say, most do not. Being good is not going to save us.We must be born again. Get right and follow Christ. There is no other way!
---Robyn on 8/27/07

My goodness! Has anyone read the Book of Job? He was tormented! He, too, felt an absence of God, but never turned away from God. And God rewarded him.

How else would someone so close to our Lord be tormented? Everyone suffers something. Those who are close to the Lord, seem to suffer more for some reason.
---J.A. on 8/27/07

We are not to judge whether or not Mother Teresa, or anyone else, is or is not in heaven. That is "krites" judging, and belongs to God alone! Let's start judging what we are supposed to judge: false teaching, false prophecy, and evil/immorality in the church! We are commanded to do that by God.
---Ang on 8/10/07

Debbie "...she didn't know Jesus as her Lord2
Did she tell you that?
---alan_of_UK on 8/10/07

and a big Amen to you Ed..why indeed do we bother being judges when it is God's job..I guarantee u tho, Mother Teresa may get to heaven and a lot of judges here wont..Lord have mercy
---jana on 8/10/07

Actually Mother Teresa did know the Lord. When she was in the hospital, where I worked, after her heart attack in the early 90's her cardiologist, the doctor I worked for, told her he was Jewish and she looked at us and said with a smile, just like my Lord Jesus. I hardly think she didn't know him. You can't live like she lived and care for people like she did without the strength of the Holy Spirit.
---Kathleen on 8/9/07

Saint she is. Mother T...such a great role model for all Christians! Her life exemplified Christ!
She gave up her life for Christ....and proved that through faith and works!.
The bible says Faith without works is dead!
The 2 go together.
Her faith was in Jesus. She Loved the Lord!
You all need to read a book on her life.
And stop condemning such a wonderful Saint!
You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
---Lisa on 8/10/07

Debby said: "She is not in Heaven, since she didn't know Jesus as her Lord, nor know that He was the only way that salvation can be provided."

And how do you know all this born again Debby?
---Caring on 8/10/07

I am really hoping MT is in Heaven. I know that a person's works alone is like filthy rags, however I just really hope she found salvation in Christ some where along her lifes journey. Satan doesn't deserve her. I never got the chance to meet her, but when I think of her I am reminded of Christ. I really wish the RCC would make Salvation a first piority and get rid of the false doctrines.

Debby, you're not God and you're not the Righteous Judge. You have nothing but your speculation to base your idea on.
---Toby on 8/9/07

She is not in Heaven, since she didn't know Jesus as her Lord, nor know that He was the only way that salvation can be provided. See Romans 10:10, II Timothy 2:19. Being good isn't enough. And Isaiah 64:6, Matthew 5:20.

mark, with a small "m"
Why each time I answer on this blog, do I need to say I was not the one who put the question?
I had said it once.
What I said was very opposite to the tone of the question.
I don't recal that anyone else got it confused ... I have been here for several years now, and it is well known that I do not change my "name"
Your attitude to me is exemplified by the comments you made about me (as you thought) in yours of 8/8 with its insistent accusation.

---Emcee on 8/9/07

I say she can go to heaven,but it's Gods choice. What I dislike on this blog board is that some people have the odasity to take Gods place in judgement when HE only can judge.We are only to judge those within our congregation if some cause to stumble, & we are ot help correct them or disfellowship them,but as stated seeing how she was I think when the ressurection comes she'll have a chance in Heaven.

As much as I doubt that a person can sacrifice their lives to feed the poor for no personal gain and be unregenerated, I also doubt that selfish people who live in luxury while their fellow man starves of sickness and hunger can have the love of God in them and actually be regenerated.

I just sent a letter to the Vatican to hire you as their secretary Helen.

I don't know that Mother Theresa taught that. I never heard her speak that. And, I know that humanly, we can say things that get misrepresented and/or misquoted.

What she did say was that Jesus had a job for her, and she was doing it.

We don't know her heart - but in James, it says you will know my faith by my works. I cannot imagine anyone choosing the life she did without a deep insight and intimate relationship with Jesus.
---daphn8897 on 8/9/07

Alan, are you a kid or an adult? What I mean, is that you went so far as to say I am accusing you, that I hate you. You are talking like a child Alan. All I said was, "why didn't you tell us it was not you?" If you said it wasn't you, about two or three years ago, we do not see it. You answered this year. The one's answering this year, thought it was you as I did. I am glad you are a honest guy. It would be terrible if you weren't.

#2. Alan: here Mark answered in this blog. He is not me but another Mark. I am with a little "m" I am saying this so others will know. Now that was not hard to do. praise God that we are not animals, or we be at each others throats.

Mark, you really hate me don't you?
Look at the date of the question (6/11/06 ... that's June last year)
and of the earliest response now published (6/25/07) and your own entry on 8/8/07 into the discussion with you accusation against me.
I had previously (in entries no longer showing on the blog) stated that I was not the Alan who posted the question.
Why will you not believe me?
Others know that I am honest, even though many think I am misguided.

Ruben: I am curious that you use the phrase "split hell wide open". What, exactly is that actually supposed to mean? Do a web search on that phrase - it is used most prominently by Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church, probably the most hateful (so-called) Christian pastor in America. He and his people chortle in glee at every misfortune, and every death, happy that people are roasting in hell. This attitude seems to me to be the very antithesis of Christian compassion and forgiveness.
---Mark on 8/9/07

In the final judgment, Jesus separtes righteous from wicked, like sheep from goats - not based on thier theology, but on their compassion.

Sure, she was not perfect, nor a model of "theological correctness". But one cannot dipute her compassion and self-sacrifice that puts air-conditioned-cadillac-driving televanglists and padded-pew-sitting Christians to shame.

At that judgment, would you expect to hear "I was hungry and you fed me, I was naked and you clothed me"?
---Mark on 8/9/07

Mark ... Would you assume that "Tom" is the same person as "Tom2"?

But it is easy to accuse, isn't it, and easy to avoid apology.
---alan_of_UK on 8/9/07

The problem with mother Theresa is that the whole world looks upon all the good works she did and they think they can work their way to heaven. Of course that is not true. Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

I think the main thing we are forgetting on these blogs are: we need to show more godly love and mercy toward others. Mother Theresa is worthy of our respect, if nothing else. Learn to be careful before speaking things we are not sure of or knows anything about. Christians should kind and loving when others are not. Of course realizing everyone makes mistakes. As it says in the book of James. The tongue is full of evil and is hard to tame. Christians we need to take heed.
---Robyn on 8/8/07

alan_of_UK: "...and I for one deprecate it."

This is a poor and judgmental attitude for a Christian - IF you are a Christian. How do you know that many of the same questions asked are from weak or nonChristians seeking legitimate answers? I'm sure Jesus had many of the same questions asked over and over again, but he was patient enough to answer them.
---Steveng on 8/8/07

Lisa: Remember that as part of the RCC tradition, people are baptised at birth. According to the Bible, a person must have knowledge of God and repent BEFORE they are baptised. A baby does not have the knowledge of God nor do they have the ability to repent. She won't be take at the first resurrection, but she might at the second when she is found in the Book of Life. It all depends on God.
---Steveng on 8/8/07

#2. Alan, you answered twice and never mentioned once that the question was not asked by you. By refusing or not mentioning anything to the fact, you left it open that it was you or that you didn't mind the question been ask. I have read your answers before to Helen, in this case she is correct on her statement because a person has to be born again in order to be saved. Otherwise all the works mean nothing.

Well Alan, there must be a few Alan's around answering pro and against Catholic's. Since you answered in these blogs, why didn't you make it clear you did not post the question? that could have cleared the air. We sometimes have to bring history, to prove a point about a subject like Constantine, but only because someone put Constantine as follower of Peter. The only way to answer is to bring history out.
---mark on 8/8/07

Mark ... You have confused me with the Alan who posted this question.
Yes, there are too many on these blogs who put all their energy and effort into being anti-Catholic, which is a point I have often made elsewhere.
And too many questions asked which seem to be asked just to generate another anti-Catholic debate.
This blog is one of those, and I for one deprecate it.

---Lisa on 8/8/07

Bryan, I believe your statements to be wrong, and I will explain later on it. The question that Alan has posted can only bring division between the people who answer. He mentioned on another blog that there was many "anti-Catholics" and then he post this question for others to answer. What does he expect the answers to be? Why even post such a question, that can only bring division, the very division he speaks against unless that person likes to hear people go against each other.

#2. Bryan: I too say be careful what you say as Marcia does. Here is the reason. You have to understand that it is the Holy Spirit who brings others to Christ. It is not possible for someone else to lead the lost to hell. They are on their way there already. She could have helped the cause but not made it worse then what it already is. Muslim's and others could be better people if they knew Christ. Which is what you said in your statement.
---mark on 8/8/07

#3. Bryan: Another thing, only the Spirit brings light to God's Word. If she didn't teach the gospel it is because the Spirit did not revealed it to her, so that she could teach it. Alan is correct that you sound like you enjoy saying what you said and that scares me. Just think for a minute how many others from every denomination teach falsely. Many do. Can we say for sure, because they don't know the whole truth that they are going to hell? Only God can determine that. You have to remember that
---mark on 8/8/07

#4. Bryan: Arminianism started in the Catholic Church by James Arminian followers. it teaches justification by Works. And the reason Trish is correct about Emcee. A work theology that is not taught in many other denominations. It began there and is the reason why we have to continue to teach justification by faith as Martin Luther, Augustine and many others taught. We are justified by faith in Jesus Christ, and if you have not noticed, that has been my fight since I started here against many others.
---mark on 8/8/07

#5. Bryan: Our responsibility is to bring false doctrines to the front, and let God deal with each individual with His Word. He brings to life those that are lost, and convicts the new believer of his sins. No one leads the lost to hell, they are going that way on their own already, because of the love they have for their father the devil. They will never love Christ, unless the Spirit quickens their hearts. They will continue to do the desires of their father.

#6 Bryan: When God's word speaks to us about false teachers, I mean the Christian, it is so that we don't contaminate our lives. The lost cannot make themselves more lost then what they are already. No one can lead them to hell. They are on their way already and can only come to Christ, by God's mercy and grace through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Jude 1:22-23 And of some have compassion, making a difference. And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

This mean, be tender with some, and literally "scare the hell out" of others (that's where the saying comes from). And the truth is, MT is in hell now for lying about the Gospel, never repenting for it, and teaching others to do so. And you'll be there too if you follow her!
---Bryan_Shaw on 8/8/07

Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also leaned on his breast at supper, Peter seeing him said to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus said unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to you? you follow me.

Follow Jesus and let him worry about mother Teresa

Becareful, I understand were you are coming from, however even if MT was a false teacher, I'm shore it greives God's heart and you could be condemning yourself by judgeing her. I know our father very well and usally when one of his children is beside him or herself he will correct them.

---Marcia on 8/7/07

She will be allowed to rise during the first resurrection. If not she will be spared during the second resurrection. If not, she will burn in hell forever. Only God knows for sure.

I would worry more about your own salvation more than worrying about someone that is dead. On the other hand, if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will be more concerned about the salvation of the living: spreading the Kingdom of God and how to get there.
---Steveng on 8/7/07

Mendy Trish::The charity shown by Blessed Teresa IS the will of God which is perfection,this she displayed in no small measure.After death, then judgement & ensuing reward She like other great saints accomplished.In order to go to heaven we must be without blemish Or a rude awakening awaits us.Be concerned about yourself & your ability to be alive in Christ with the charity He has asked us to share with each other.ask yourself what is the opposite of love.?That trait will deny you entry.

All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. Sister Theresa could have had a life of luxery at the end of her life but gave it up to serve Jesus. What have you given? She had a passion for Jesus Christ. Her heart was to draw people to Jesus by loving them and simply love them into the Kingdom of God. How many of you here can say your doing the same? We as Christians need to get rid of a religious heart and become true servants. A servant does what the Master tells him not the other way around.
---Saved_One on 8/7/07

Without a doubt I am quite happy -- as are all God's elect -- that one of the greatest servants of Satan and one of the greatest false teachers of all time is no longer present to confuse, obfuscate, twist, bend, anneal, blur, and poison the gospel of salvation through Christ. I bet Satan himself pleaded with the Lord to give her a few more days of life. She was one of his highest scoring players. She'll be in Hell's Hall of Fame for sure!!!
---Bryan_Shaw on 8/7/07

Beloved, here is why we must be tough on false teachers. MT's doctrine has made countless thousands feel OK about seeking justification in Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. This doctrine has ushered thousands into hell. Exposing her (in spite of the charity that cammoflauged her damning lies) will help prevent this from happening again and even undo some of the harm she caused. In order to do this, we must discern truth, ergo, we must read the bible (e.g. more than John 3:16 or 1 Cor 13)
---bryan_shaw on 8/7/07

Mother Theresa did so many good things while she was here on Earth. It seems such a shame she was a Catholic. Being good will not get us into Heaven. We must be born again. Jesus must reign Supreme in our lives. Not the Pope or Mother Mary. And I find it hard to believe I once wanted to be a Nun. It goes to show you how wrong and misguided our thinking can be. Ye shall know the truth........
---Robyn on 8/7/07

Oh, Brian you are filled with hate. I'll lift you up. I'm very confident that the Lord, Whom Mother Teresa served and worshipped and put first in her life, always, greeted her with the words we all strive in God's Love and through His Holy Spirit to hear when he greets us as we enter into His presence, "Well done, good and faithful servant". Don't be so hateful it's hazardous to your Immortal soul. God bless you my Christian brother. I'm a Christian saved and washed in the Blood of Jesus.
