I wouldn't capitalize that spirit.

SW:Sounds just like my testimony. Must be the same Spirit that lead me out.
Probably was. But I wouldn't capitalize that spirit.

Praise the name of Jesus who set me free.
It wasn't Jesus. Jesus does not lead people out of His Church.

Makes me think how good does a Catholic need to be to get into heaven?.
That is for God to determine. 

I think that is the difference between a Catholic and a Protestant. For some reason, Protestants can't leave the business of justification to God. They want to become judge and jury not just for themselves but for all mankind.

Spent all my years trying in the RCC but never reached that goal.
Many people spend all their lives claiming they are trying and never reach that goal:
Matthew 7:21

King James Version (KJV)

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Protestants want to tell God when they are saved. But God is the Boss. It is He who Judges the world.

  1. "Makes me think how good does a Catholic need to be to get into heaven?."

    How about researching the lives of the Saints and maybe perhaps considering the Incorruptibles.

    Matthew 7:13-15 "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, * that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few. 15* "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves."

    This passage doesn't sound like Assured Salvation to me, nor Eternal Security. The American mentality wants everything easy and its reflected in both their lifestyles and their religious beliefs. The New Age of the New Trinity: "Me, Myself and My Jesus."

    God bless you De Maria
