If I can believe in a religion that rejects the Church’s teachings and still get to heaven, why bother being a Catholic?

Full Question

If one can be of another faith that rejects Church teachings and still reach the kingdom of heaven, then what’s the point of being a Catholic?

Answer

1. Catholicism is true.

2. Unless we strive to be faithful to the truth to the best of our understanding, we will not be saved.

3. The farther one is away from the Church, the less the chance of making it to heaven.

4. Those who culpably refuse to embrace the truth in the Church cannot be saved because they are ultimately rejecting Christ.

    No you can’t make it to heaven if you are not Catholic, Dogma states:
    Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence “Cantate Domino”, 1441, ex cathedra: The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”

      I question the legitimacy of that.

      Yeah, but anyone who receives a Christian baptism belongs to the Catholic Church, in a mysterious way, whether they know or don’t know, whether they acknowledge or don’t acknowledge. Most Protestants don’t know because they’ve been mislead into believing the “invisible Church”. Most of them are unknowingly faithful to Church teaching. That’s why so many Protestants are coming home as visible members. God doesn’t punish people for what they honestly don’t know.
