Catholics avoid The Curse of Disobedience. Sadly, Protestants do not.
Protestants avoid obeying The Decree of Jesus: “. . and I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”
What are the “keys to The Kingdom of Heaven”? The Seven Catholic Sacraments are “the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven”.
No one can get through Heaven’s Gate without the “keys”! Jesus told us how to get them: “You are My friends if you obey My commands.”
For some, His call to obedience is not enough. Catholics see that His Divine Instruction is reinforced by a curse upon the willfully disobedient:
John 3:36 is clear: “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
Catholics avoid The Curse of Disobedience. We encourage all our beloved neighbors to avoid the awful fate of having “the wrath of God” remain upon us for eternity.
Anyone may avoid The Curse of Disobedience by choosing to respect Jesus enough to be in, and obey, The Only Church He Decreed Into Being!
Catholics are blessed to know: “If I willfully disobey Jesus, and do not seek Absolution from the only people on earth whom Jesus ordained with the power: ‘Those whose sins you forgive on earth are forgiven in Heaven.’, I cannot get into Heaven!”
Catholics do not quibble with Jesus. Catholics do not argue with Jesus. Catholics do not make excuses to avoid The Only Church He Founded.
Catholics respect Jesus enough to be in The Only Church led by Successors to Peter for 2,000 years. We honor and obey Her unchanging Doctrines.
Obedience lets Catholics avoid The Curse of Disobedience. We pray that all may be so blessed such real respect for Jesus.
