Believers must have personal faith in Christ
HOW interesting to see the letter from Sean McElgunn (Write Back, August 25) re the immoral and despicable actions within the Vatican, which have caused him to question these "clerical VIPs".
As he says, the Church is Christ made up of the body of believers. No church can replace the true personal faith in Christ that's necessary to be saved from the consequences of sin – spiritual death.
I would point Sean to the New Testament Gospels, where he can read the words of Christ and learn how he can be saved, turn to Him and live as a true believer.
