In Catholic teachings…If some one felt that your church were the one true church but never joined would they be punished in the after-life? Also, would that same person be held accountable if they raised their children in a different religion?
Does the answer change if the reason they chose not to jon the church was because their spouse would divorce them if they did? Which is the better choice? Breaking the commitment you made to your spouse before God, or not joining a church that you feel is right because of your spouse?
