I’ve been struggling with this for a lengthy time, and ultimately, I really *can’t *see…
How everyone who’s not a Christian is going to hell,
How God would only allow a fraction of the world to know Him (honestly, how could someone raised Muslim, Buddhist, or Jewish in a foreign country be physically able to convert to Catholicism, and what about all the less-intelligent of them to whom reasoning means little anyway: are they going to hell because the Christian God didn’t give them the intelligence to convert to the one, true faith?)
How any miracle performed or manifested outside the Catholic Church must therefore be a heathen, demon miracle simply cause it’s outside the Church.
How good, religious moralists of other faiths such as Hinduism still have to go to hell, even though they may have had their own divine revelations from their own deity.
How so many Catholics base their faith upon the miracles, teachings, and works of Jesus and the Saints while equally astounding miracles such as those of Sathya Sai Baba are slammed with skepticism.
Basically, I don’t see how anything of divine nature has to be exclusive to Catholicism or Christianity for that matter. When we snub other teachings and miracles, it just seems like arrogance
I’ve been able to reconcile many things, but I’m afraid I might lose my faith in Christianity simply cause under it so many people are going to hell for no real reason.
Nothing is black and white any more, it seems I’m slipping reluctantly into relativism.
