The following has been written by Bible believing Christians to help people in the Catholic faith rightly understand salvation
When will you have certainty?
On our journey through life we face many challenges. Challenges to health, work, relationships, even challenges to our faith.
Life is a difficult journey. No matter what path you choose, danger and hardship are at every turn. And for many, the destination is uncertain.
We'd all like to be certain. Certain of who we are... that we're loved. Most of all, certain of where we're heading.
Who am I? Does God love me? Will I go to heaven?
Amidst uncertainty, people often turn to different religions for answers. It can be comforting to 'do' something. To participate in some religious activity to reassure us.
True Christianity, however, is very different from religion. Jesus offers himself as the only way into heaven describing himself as "the door" (The Bible - John chapter 10, verse 9). He says that anyone who listens to his voice and follows him will be saved. We need to respond to Jesus with a life that is changed, but we don't need to 'do' good works or perform rituals to earn salvation. This is because Jesus has already done all that is necessary.
Jesus loves us and is always there for us. As our great high priest, who sympathises with our weaknesses, He is able to help us in our time of need (The Bible - Hebrews chapter 4, verses 14-16).
On the cross Jesus died to pay for the things we've done wrong. Three days later he rose again from the dead. If we trust in Jesus' work at the cross we can be friends with God and be saved. Read More »
Catholicism & the Certainty of Salvation
This short video explores the catholic teaching on the salvation and also what the Bible has to say about certainty and our relationship with God. View Video »
Outreach Media has produced a short booklet outlining the certainty of salvation offered through Jesus Christ, rather than the uncertainty of trusting in things held out by the Catholic church such as the Pope and the Papacy, Mary and the Saints, Confession and the Mass, Purgatory and the giving of Indulgences. These are important things for us to understand ourselves with World Youth Day upon us and to be sharing with friends. You can purchase copies of the booklet for $0.25 each Click here to order »

The message at the heart of Christianity is really quite simple - simple enough to be outlined in a few pages. It is a message from the Bible about God and his son, Jesus. It is all about life and death, and the choice that we all face.
