Actually the Catholic Church teaches that you are saved and are under Gods Grace. If however you believe the Catholic Church is the true Church and you do not join it you put your salvation at risk.<quoted text>Do we need to be Catholic to be saved?
When writting, I am writting to fellow Christians ,who may even be more holy then me. However, I believe after studing Christianity for 25 years we are the most consistant in our teachings. Yet each differient church has to say the same thing about what they teach to claim what they teach is the truth. Each non Catholic church does teach something differient about doctine and truth demands that there can be only one answer, For example one church will teach Baptism Is a scacrement , another will say it is symbolic, another will say it is only the baptisim of the holy spirit and another does not Baptise at all ( I can list the differient churches that teach this )Truth demands only one right answer .
