It’s been estimated that the total number of people that have lived on earth since the time of Adam and Eve has been about 115 billion. Currently, there lives on earth, give or take 7 billion people.
In the Catholic Church, there’s an estimated 1.2 billion Catholics. The vast majority of these “Catholics” follow the heretical Vatican II Church—not the true unchanging Catholic Church that existed for almost 2,000 years--but a new theology reeking with Modernism propagated by “priests”, “bishops” and “popes” who broke the vows they made to God to reject Modernism.
Those that follow the true Roman Catholic Church and Eastern Catholic Church number approximately 140 million. Of the remaining world’s population, most are persons that for one reason or another refuse to accept the Word of God (Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, non-believers) and Protestants that account for about 800 million.
The Protestants are divided into about 33,000 different sects and their doctrines vary from the ridiculous to the preposterous. Obviously, if all Protestants held the same doctrine—there would be no need for 33,000 different sects, instead, they would merge into one Church teaching one doctrine—wouldn’t they?
An example of teaching differently, distorting and skimping on the teaching of Jesus--is the King James Bible that eliminated 7 books and changed the meaning in many passages from the Original Bible. Obviously, Jesus did not intend for there to be thousands of doctrines that distort, skimp on His Words, and teach His Word differently. Here’s what Jesus commanded: “If you love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14: 15).
So, if the majority of people on earth (the combined false religions) were to gain salvation, then that would mean that Jesus’ Words:
“Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven…Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7: 21, 22, 23)…WERE IN ERROR.
Now ask yourself these questions:
1. Can God err?
2. Was it Jesus’ intention to establish 33,000 churches that teach a doctrine different from what He taught?
3. Did Jesus teach, as Protestants widely teach, that “everyone is saved”—a teaching that criticizes and circumvents His teaching in Luke 13:24: “Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, SHALL SEEK to enter, and shall not be able”, or was it Jesus’ intention that we follow ONLY the Words He gave us in Luke 13: 24?
4. Would Jesus approve of the “Catholic” Vatican II Church that imitates the false Protestant religions that was condemned by the true Catholic Church from the inception of the Protestant Reformation up until Vatican II?
So, where do the souls go that refuse to accept without objection the one and only TRUE CHURCH, (The Roman Catholic Church), that Jesus Himself established? There’s no other place for them to go except down into the cellar!
The Catholic Church has consistently taught infallibility, via its True Popes (The Vatican II “Popes” and the Vatican II Church are not true Catholic) and its Magisterium that Outside of the Catholic Church there is No Salvation. Council of Florence, 1441, Bull Cantate Domino by Pope Eugene IV, ex cathedra:
The Most Holy Roman Catholic Church firmly believes, professes, and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews, heretics, and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels, unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgiving, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he abide within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.”
This also has been the teaching of the multitude of Doctors and Saints of the Catholic Church.
Pray the Rosary and wear the Brown Scapular. The Rosary is the weapon (as Padre Pio called it) that will deliver souls into the attic and keep them out of the cellar.
“If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins ‘you shall receive a never-fading crown of glory.’ Even if you are on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil as sorcerers do who practice black magic, and even if you are a heretic as obstinate as a devil, sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and will save your soul, if—and mark well what I say—if you say the Rosary devoutly every day until death for the purpose of knowing the truth and obtaining contrition and pardon for your sins.” St. Louis DeMontfort from The Secrets of the Rosary.
