FRIENDLY ADVICE FOR
What is the most important thing in your life?
It is to save your soul. This is the one thing necessary (Luke 10:42) "What shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" says Our Blessed Lord and Savior (Mark 8:36)
What must you do to save your soul?
You must follow the religion that was taught by Jesus Christ. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6).
"Go ye into all the world," He said to His Apostles, "and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved; but he that believeth not, shall be condemned."
(Mark 16: 15-16)
How many religions did Jesus Christ teach?
Most certainly only one, for this plain reason: Jesus Christ cannot contradict Himself. "There shall be one Fold and one Shepherd," He says (John 10:16). And Saint Paul tells us, that there is "one Lord" and "one Faith" (Ephesians 4:5).
What religion is the true religion taught by Jesus Christ?
If I wish to seek and find true Christianity, I must seek it in the true Christian Church which must be the original Church that Jesus founded. The original and only Church that Jesus founded is the Roman Catholic Church. The Church is "Roman" and at the same time "Catholic" because its chief pastor has always been the Bishop of Rome, since the day when Saint Peter on whom Christ built His Church (Matthew 16:18), first fixed his See in that city; the Church is Catholic, because it is universal or world-wide in its extent, teaching all nations to observe all things that were commanded by Jesus Christ.
Why do we find many religions that claim to be Christian, especially in the United States?
As Our Savior taught but one religion, it must follow that all other religions are false religions, except one, wherever that is. Hence Saint Paul says in his Epistle to the Galatians 1:8, "Though we or an angel from Heaven, preach any other Gospel to you that that which we have preached, let him be anathema (condemned."
Don't you lack charity and kindness by saying only the Roman Catholic Church is the true Church, while all others are false denominations?
It is not uncharitable or unkind: it is similar to pointing out the right road to you when you are on a journey, and to tell you that all other roads will lead you astray.
