Hi, guys —

Do Catholics believe they are the only religion going to make it to Heaven?

Hi, Jerry —

You said:

Religions don't go to Heaven. People go to Heaven. They go to Heaven based on:

  • what they know
  • what they have done to find out eternal truths
  • what they do and what they don't do, with what they know.

That said: The first and ONLY Christian Church Jesus founded was the Catholic Church.
Since Christians believe Our Lord is the Savior of the world and of mankind, it makes sense
to follow AND obey the Teachings of the Church HE founded on St. Peter and his successors.

  • Will all Catholic go to Heaven?

    No one on earth can judge, but it is doubtful.

  • Why?

    Because all men, whether they are Catholic or not, have free will to disobey His Teachings and the Lord will never interfere with any man or woman's free will.

Make sense?

Hope this helps,

Mike
