Will leaving Catholicism keep me out of heaven?

I am thinking about leaving the Catholic church for another Christian church. I have been told that this will block me from entering Heaven. Is this true?


These links should help you understand the position those who defect or apostasize from the faith put themselves in, as well as what you’d be losing should you make that unfortunate decision. Please contact Catholic Answers directly or write to Ask An Apologist again for help with the areas that are troubling you. You are in my prayers!
