    romanisim, russian orthodoxy are cults who worship idols, thats right they say they just venerate which is worship. exodus 20-2. 1st cor9-10 no idol worshipper in mary, st.ann st. theresa, the pope, st.joseph i could go on and on this is a cult which the lord jesus saved me out of o pray for lost souls in these cults we need to reach them with the real jesus of the bible, the mass is blaspheme.

    Luke 24:32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? My heart burned within me when I was saved. It seemed that every word out of the preachers mouth was aimed at me. My wife also was saved the same day.

    LUKE 24 is a beautiful chapter...can you imagine having CHRIST appear to you, sit, eat and talk with you! HOW AMAZING THAT WOULD BE!!! What amazes me also is how they had the old testament to teach them about Christ and yet they still didn't know Him. Also how HE had spent time with them and worked miracles in front of them and they still didn't understand Him nor recognize Him when they saw HIM.

    Can people who call themselves Catholic be saved?...yes, I do think so, can people who hold fast to the Catholic doctrine be saved?....I don't see any way they can be. Let every man examine himself with the Holy scriptures as the "only" standard.
  • WC
    Catholics are not saved people. Trusting in Christ and Him alone is what saves. Everything about Catholicism teaches to trust in other things...Mary, Pope's edicts, confessing to priests, etc. I know because I came out of that. It's a filthy religion like all false religions. When a Catholic gets saved, they leave all that behind which would make them no longer Catholic.
