to the Roman Catholic Church, the salvation of your soul is a long
journey through her sacramental system. On this journey the Roman
Catholic Church is clearly the focal point, even defining herself as
the fullness of your salvation. In essence, your salvation can
only, if ever, be granted through the Roman Catholic Church.
Catholic Church’s sacraments are taught to be the necessary means of
salvation with “sanctifying grace” seen as residing inside a person and
granted to an individual as he or she participates in each
sacrament. As a Catholic, your efforts are always to increase the
amount of “sanctifying grace” within you in order to be good enough so
that when you die you might be delivered from the judgment of hell and
at least to land for a time in purgatory.
Catholic teaching, the assurance of your salvation is never given, even
to the most devout. So coming to terms with your own salvation
and honestly dealing with the true author of salvation must not be
taken lightly. You could not be asked a more serious question
than this: “if your were die today where would you spend
eternity?” Where can you find the correct answer? It is
with utmost seriousness that we ask you this. Please do not be
fooled by thinking that someday you will get right with the
Church. What you really need to know is how will you stand before
the all Holy God, guilty or forgiven? Consider the contrast
between the Word of God and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
