Question for new converts (or returning Catholics):


Do you think you would have been saved if you didn’t become Catholic?

This question is inspired by a conflict in another forum over how necessary the Catholic Church is for salvation… Which is why it is in the apologetics forum.


Who says I’m saved now that I’ve become Catholic? There are surely plenty of Catholics in hell.

I could have worked out my salvation (as Paul says) as a protestant. It’s easier as a Catholic because I have the fullness of the Truth and the completeness of the Faith.
