=HailHolyQueen90;9266170]Will non-Catholic Christians make it to heaven? If so, how will this happen?
Will Jews, God's chosen for the first covenant, make it to heaven? If so, why? If not, why not?
If Jesus Christ founded one true Church, what happens to those who are outside of it?
What are pre and post Vatican II views on this?
Please show me references, I hear different things from different people and I want at least some sort of official straight answer, if there even is one.
Only God can KNOW with certitude.
There is room to doubt as they are not a part of the Only God; Only One Faith and Only One Church God Himself commissioned and protects. Also the issue of not accepting [due to a weakened faith and a consequent lack of right understanding] of at least three biblically cler issues: 1. One Church and the Soverignity of Peter 2. The Real Presence as explained by God Himself and FIVE different Bible authors 3. Forgiveness of sin John 20;19-23].
John.10: 16 **“And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. **So there shall be one flock, one shepherd”
*Eph. 4: 1-7 *“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all lowliness and meekness, with patience, forbearing one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call, one Lord, one faith [MEANS only One set of beliefs], one baptism, one God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ's gift".
*Eph. 2:19-20 *“So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
Eph. 3: 9-10 ** “And to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; that through the church [singular] the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. **This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord"
It remains a FACT that God will; because God MUSt judge each of us NOT on the personal believes WE CHOOSE to accept; but on what HE GOD makes POSSIBLE for each of us to actually know. That is what Devine Justice MUST DO.
So we ought to continue to answer there questions in charity and clarity. Continue to pray for them and then leave it UP TO OUR GOD.:)
Thanks for asking,
