Is it positive to lay claim to a belief that self will go to heaven and others will go to hell???
I don't know, because I don't believe in a hell, and really, not a "heaven" per se.

Maybe someone else can answer your question.

No matter what your answer will be, one should always be positive in their day-to-day life - as it makes life move by soooo much happier.

Here is your poem

I'm a Protestant it's true
But I can be a Catholic too
Islam might be my next choice
Or Buddhism, if I hear the voice
It matters not which one I choose
As the only god will not refuse
My devotion day by day
With that one god I'll always play

Yes, I was raised on lies. Lies such as "once saved always saved".
You see no evidence that any church can claim to the the true Church Jesus built?
Well that doesn't mean there is no evidence actually existing that there is one.
Christ likened His Church to a city on a hill, a light in the darkness, things which are visible and concrete.
He said nobody lights a candle and then puts a basket over it.
Are you saying that Christ established His Church and then promptly hid it from the world?

Where in the Bible does it say that the Bible alone is the sole rule of Christian Faith?
*********
Why do you folks who refute Sola Scripture, constantly require a Biblical proof? You don't give Biblical 'proof' of Catholic tenets.

"Sola scriptura" means "bible alone, right?
So this "sola scriptura" concept must be somewhere in the Bible, right?
Where is this teaching, then? What book, chapter, and verse?

Now I lay me down to sleep
I hope the gods will be discreet
As they judge my naughty dreams
And expose my daily schemes
May I awake to find them gone
Back to their hells where they belong
They have no right to judge me
When they are loony as can be

But for those who DO believe that others will burn in hell ... do you perceive that is a positive way for them to believe???

Little children die from cancer every day.
If your supposed god exists, he enjoys observing all forms of suffering, and that means there would BE no excuse for his all-powerful behavior. He would know it, just as you know it ... but for your cheap promise by nitwit theologians of salvation, you keep on being silly.
"OH I love you god!!! Please love ME god!!!" ... drool ... slobber ... blah, blah, blah.
I ordered that book "The God-Shaped Brain" and think you should read it, seriously, because you are actually damaging your brain when you dwell on a hateful, sadistic, arbitrary god.
You are causing actual functional damage which in negatively affecting your ability to experience love, exercise reason, and problem solve. Not to mention what is happening to your immune system.
The good news is all this can be reversed simply by spending a little time each day contemplating a loving God.
If you can't imagine a loving God, then this book will help you in that area.
This is the best book I've seen that examines the connection between your body and your faith.
I recommend it also to anyone who might read this post.

I am at last free from religion ... but I am not free from me.

I still have to deal with emotional and physical pain ... but at least now I don't believe that a creator had any part in any plan.

And THAT is a huge relief.

example of Salvation being received in the NEW TESTAMENT.
BELOW IS THREE OCCASIONS THAT GIVE WITNESS
OF HOW ONE CAN BE BORN AGAIN...
Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
EXAMPLE #1
Act 16:30 ...... Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
Act 16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
Act 16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
~~~
EXAMPLE #2
Act 8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
Act 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
Act 8:37 And Philip said,
If thou believest with all thine heart,
thou mayest. And he answered and said,
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Act 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Act 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
~~~
EXAMPLE #3
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Amen Kay

Salvation is ONLY through Jesus. Forgive the change here I just remembered my sign in from 3 years ago

I was denied Holy Communion....that is part of being excommunicated...
However, that was some forty years ago..no telling what they have changed since then...
Divorce doesn't place one in a state of grave, unrepentant sin.

Divorce and remarriage without an annulment precludes you from Communion (in the strict construct of Canon Law).

Plus, the priest would have to KNOW that you're divorced and remarried sans annulment in order for him to even begin to consider withholding of the sacrament. BTW, the communicant situated as described is the one who has primary responsibility to abstain from presenting themselves for Communion, not the priest to withhold it.

That was my point earlier as well.
Her position is that the Catholic Church is "wrong" at best, apostate most of the time by her posts, and she apparently doesn't care for how they vetted the scriptures when declaring canon.......
...BUT she holds the Bible they came up with as the sole foundation of her faith.
Yeah, that makes sense.
This kind of thing is why I refused to be protestant anymore. I got tired of the freakin confusion, the whip lash, the nonsensical stances, the brain-straining cognitive dissonance, the feeling like I had to almost have alter egos, one for each mutually exclusive set of ideas I was supposed to believe.
