Life’s most important question

Life’s most important question:LIFE

“What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30)

 

Answer from the Roman Catholic church:

  • Attend RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) classes for a year.

  • Get baptized.

  • Receive the sacrament of confirmation.

  • Attend mass every Sunday and every holy day of obligation.

  • Receive the eucharist at least once a year.

  • Obey the Ten Commandments and church rules.

  • Confess all your “mortal” sins to a priest – participate in the sacrament of reconciliation at least once a year.

  • Use sacramentals liberally and frequently ask Mary and the saints for their help.

  • Receive the sacrament of last rites before you die.

If you do all the above you MAY PERHAPS merit Heaven provided you don’t have ANY “mortal” sin on your soul at the moment of your death.

 

Answer from God’s Word:

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:31). “Believe” is translated from the Greek word, pisteuo = to put one’s faith in, to trust, with the implication that actions based on that trust will follow.

    1. Thanks, Jim. Yes, I pray it opens someone’s eyes. A much more ecumenical-oriented friend just “unfollowed” me because he said such messages were too blunt and that I would catch more flies if I used honey instead of vinegar like he does. But I actually was led to Christ by Christians who bluntly contrasted the Gospel with Catholicism.
