[quote=SamG]I have a friend who is Christian yet still believes in reincarnation and incorporates Wiccan worshiping techniques to praise God. Will that person get into Heaven? I guess they could be classified as a “cafeteria Catholic.” They are surrounded by the knowledge of true Christianity yet they choose not to listen.
If someone has the resources to gain the knowledge of Christianity, yet they don’t seek the knowledge, can they still get into Heaven? Can prayers for the person save them, or is it up to them to believe?
Only God, since he alone can read hearts and knows all circumstances of a person’s life, can definitively judge whether a person is going to hell or heaven. Even if a person is surrounded by Christians and numerous resources, if they are presented a poor, distorted, or uncharitable witness to the Gospel, they may or may not be culpable. Again, only God knows for sure; your job and my job is to pray for the person and to be the most loving and reliably informative witness we can be and leave the rest to that person and God.
