How To Catholics Go To Heaven:

wings of a dove
head first
skin of teeth
yellow brick road

I think it is BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH same as everyone else

No Catholic in all the world from the lowest to the Pope himself is certain of their salvation. Remember purgatory? It was created first for money but also to create doubt in the minds of the people.

Mima, as I have mention before when and if you make a trip down south, stop by San Antonio Tx. Love to talk to you about purgatory and anything Catholic because it is very obvious you know nothing about Catholic Church. Also we will talk about that doctrine which is not biblical at all call "OSAS"..Let me know!

Despite this scripture, Hebrews 5:13,
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

Paul tell us in Eph 6:10-17 "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

If you believe in the name of the Son of God and have Eternal life because of it, why the need to "Put on the armor of God"?

Which is the Narrow way:

Passage Matthew 7:14:

"But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it."

Are talking about the rcc or the cc?
The rcc Is the First church of the apostates,
the First trin-church then her offspring daughters churches came later & not in this order, the presby, cog, luth, episco, naz, aog, bapt, method etc which Is here Matt.15 v 9 & came from here 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15 & Is here Rev.17 v's 4 - 6. They Are such Good people but so spiritually darkened.
---Lawrence on 6/9/10


Regardless of the Catholic's "perspective," or any other denomination's for that matter, there is one way to be saved and one way only. That is to repent of (turn away from) sin, to ask for God's forgiveness, to invite Christ into your heart and ask Him to be your Savior and Lord. You must believe in and accept Christ's atonement. God knows every heart and realizes its intent - whether one is sincere or not. That's the bottome line for any person.
---Crystal on 1/1/08


They need to repent, that means turn from sin to God. If they do that, they must also turn from the apostate church. You would't expect a JW to continue to go to a JW church if he got saved would you.
---Pastor_Herb on 4/4/07


Ts. That is an answer that sounds like it came straight from the Holy Spirit. Praise God!!!
---MARK on 4/4/07




Jesus said "Judge no one" ...yet we are Commanded to "Test the Spirits" Thus we can test the Doctrine of churches against the Scriptures but we are not to Judge them lost until God finally closes the door to mercy and sends His Son to "Give unto every man according to his works." Protestants are just as prone to being lost as Catholics and everyone else if we choose not to Keep All that Christ has given us.
---TS on 4/3/07


Christy
"It is all works" - I am sorry but what are you talking about. The Reformation was all about Catholics (faith and works) and Protestants (faith alone). If you are going to make such serious allegation then please check your facts about Catholic doctrine first. Otherwise your persuasion over others will be based on straw, not rock, and that is just not right.

AND AMEN SANDEE...AMEN..YOUR RIGHT
---jana on 4/3/07


Sandie::Jesus said Follow him& "Be perfect as your heavenly Father is Perfect" anything short you will be excluded NO ADMITTANCE:Nothing Defiled shall enter Heaven.Chrisssy has it right.God is a God of LOVE His foot prints in the sand do not Vanish.
Helen my Dear You were a Catholic You already Know what you need to do Your Grandma & Family show you the way it's Gods way all you have to do is Go to Confession.Your choice.This is what lent is about Repentance.
---Emcee on 4/2/07


Helen.
Yes Catholics agree that fide is the way to salvation. But Jesus also said that we were to feed the poor and so forth. That our salvation is not just an idea but an action in carrying out God's will here on earth. And that will is to carry out God's compassion. Fide is not enough. Please quote to us from the Bible where fide alone is sufficient.
---Ed on 4/2/07


No religion can save but only Jesus Christ alone:)
No good deed can get you into heaven. It's only but Jesus CHrist that we can get into Heaven/Saved:)

Jesus said He is the way,the truth, & life. Noone can come to the FAther but through him(Jesus Christ)

2) This is the problem withh the RCC.Note that there is no mention of Jesus taking our sin upon the cross and dying in our place. It is all works.There is truth used here to justify, such as love the Lord with all your heart. As for making Mary our refuge, that is simply idolatry. God alone is our refuge and our strength
---Christy on 8/17/06


1)Emcee's response is what is the RCC perspective on salvation: "love the Lord with your whole Heart & soul & your neighbour as yourself.Live by His standards, & trust in His Divine Mercy.Recieve His Holy Eucharist & you will abide in Him & He in You.Make His Holy Mother Your refuge & your strength."pray for us who have recourse to Thee"Please Her son who is Your Saviour,stay in the state of HIS grace.If ever you should fall seek his pardon by confession ."
---Christy on 8/17/06


You make His Holy Mother your refuge? I don't think so!! Psalm 91:2 "I will say of the LORD, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'" Psalm 34:8 "Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him." Psalm 18:2 "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge." Not ONE single verse can be found that supports Mary being anyone's refuge. Not one!
---Crystal on 8/11/06


Emcee - Where in Scripture does it tell anybody to "make his holy mother your refuge"? Chapter and verse please.

Do Catholics use the same Bible as the rest of the world? What does the BIBLE say to ALL believers? Concerning salvation? 5verses! John3:3, Rom.3:23, Rom.6:23, Rom.10:9,10. Sorry all you denominationalists but in heaven there are going to be Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, etc. etc.! ONE BODY!Eph.4:4-6
---rober9463 on 8/11/06


Faith in Jesus Christ's finished work on the Cross in the Sacrifice of Himself for sin is the only way to heaven. None of us no matter how hard we try to live a life pleasing to God can come up to God's righteous standard, that is why He had to send His Son to die on the Cross. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, and that means the real Jesus Who is now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven, His work on the Cross finished.
---Helen_5378 on 8/10/06


As I understand it, belief in jesus christ as he who died for our sins. And repentence for sinful acts.
why so many here want to demonize catholics, i'll never understand (i can only assume they don't either)

teach love
---frank_cos on 8/10/06


Through the Divine Blood of Jesus, That's how. Jesus said that only a "Few" would make it, and both Protestant & Catholic alike will make up that "Few". God isn't interrested in Titles, He only looks to see if the Blood of His Son is in a person's soul. God bless. --Mrs. Morgan

---Emcee on 8/10/06


Same as for anybody--the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ.

OTOH, Evangelicals teach salvation by works: walking down the aisle to "Just as I am" or similar hymn, "confessing witn your mouth", saying a given prayer...

If these aren't "works" what is?
---Jack on 8/10/06


It is said that you are judged by the burdens you have lessened. The true way to get to heaven is by GRACE. But you are supposed to help people. The bible teaches you cannot live a selfish life. You must put others first. We live in a me first society, which is very shameful. There are actually many,many Christians who do care. But they are overshadowed by the people who don't. I attended the movies last week and they asked everyone to donate a dollar to charity and most people said no. Now thats bad!
