I have a friend who got baptized into the catholic church under the misconceptions from a church memeber that baptism would give him prosperity and material gains. He also hasn’t been catechized well since he attended RCIA class for only one or two months, before he was hurried into baptism by the parish church. Later, he found out that his life didn’t become as prosperous as the member promised, and his life was actually getting worse.
So now he wants to leave the church, but is worried about the consequences. So my questions are:
- Is his baptism valid?
- will he go to hell if he leaves the church and does not repent?
Thank you very much in advance!
