One Hell of a misconception

THE Catholic Church does not condemn fellow Christians to Hell for following the false doctrines and heretical views of John Calvin, Martin Luther, et alia.

Unlike those of the mindset of pastor Jim Armour (Write Back, October 11), who are of the notion that Catholics are going to Hell unless they reject the faith 'once and for all delivered unto the saints' (Jude 1:3), the Catholic faith comes to us from the Apostles. There is nothing more anti-Catholic than believing that Catholics are damned.
