Getting from here to Heaven

Getting from here to Heaven may begin with First Principle # 1,  “Outside The Trinity, no two things are equal.”  Some disagree, insisting, “A equals A”.  That is not true.  Each A is in a different place in time, space, and neuron.

Then, First Principle #2, “Outside The Trinity, of any two things, one is better.”

Those First Principles bring us to The Only Church Jesus Founded.   We see what the prophets predicted:  The Messiah would be born of the Tribe of Judah, in the House of David.  He would be born of a virgin in Bethlehem at the time predicted by Daniel.  He would perform great Miracles.  Details of His death were predicted in great detail:  His bones would be visible, made so by the viciousScourging at The Pillar.  No bones would be broken, so He could not be hung, crushed,  beheaded, or thrown to ravenous animals.  He was predicted to be “lifted up before men”.  He Had to be crucified in 0rder that they could “look upon Him Whom they pierced”.   He had to rise from the dead, to which faithful witnesses testified unto their own, painful deaths.

It is impossible to look at the hundreds of prophecies and see the odds are trillions to one that Jesus was NOT the Prophesied Messiah.

Those who get this far are then divided into two groups.  Some simply stop.  “I believe that Jesus fulfilled the Prophecies.  I believe in Jesus, so, I am saved!”

The other group is drawn farther by this fact:  “Jesus only founded One Church.  He said, one time, to one man, ‘Verily, verily 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.’

The Catholic conclusion:  “I respect Jesus enough to be in The Only Church He Founded.”
