Because they supposedly pervert scripture, worship Mary, and practice Pagan ritual?
sort by best latest
I wish most people realized.
Very prudent answer I think. Judge not lest ye be judged...right?
Haha, I'm sure there will be people of all sorts down there (hopefully I don't find out though)!
It is neither. It is mostly an attempt to both feel out the community as well as find hope that there are still people who don't go around condemning anyone who disagrees with them.
Aiming high is good I think. And I agree about probably spending time there. And thank God for that! Think what would happen without that wonderful, merciful, gift...
Good distinction I think.
Jhudah, I believe Mary needs a savior as well! And also that only God can truly judge who is there. I wish every Christian to see that. A lot more would be accomplished if we just focused on how best to love.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” -Ephesians 2:8,9 .. salvation is a gift not something we earn from our good works.
I don't disagree with that. Faith through grace is the only thing that can grant us salvation. Works matter however, as they are the manifestation of a true faith. The Apostle Paul would agree, as would James.
well yes works matters.. Jesus said in John 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
...and the people of HubPages all said (all together) AMEN!
I believe we should simply love and respect one another, live live to the fullest, and worship whatever God one may believe in.
I believe that is the righteous path
not sure why you're lump assigning catholic clergy to Hell. The bad ones are the minority, even if they do get the most press; but not all priests are evil, any more than all men are rapists or all women are gold diggers...
You mean in Hell, In God, or that Catholics believe that stuff?
