If you choose to die in a state of mortal sin, you will go to hell forever. Jesus was a real man in history Who rose from the dead, and He is alive today, bodily. The only true church is the Catholic Church. After your death, you will be judged by Jesus--not the Buddha, Mohammed, Joseph Smith, or, for that matter, any pagan god. Using artificial means to prevent conception is a mortal sin, and is a cancer eating away at the Mystical Body of Christ in America and other western countries. Suffering can only find meaning in the suffering of Jesus. Mary was conceived without sin. Homosexual acts are an abomination before God. Abortion is the intentional killing of a human being, and is a scourge on our nation's soil. The pope is infallible when teaching about faith and morals. Right and wrong actions have a basis in absolute truth, and we can know it. We all have free will, and unless our consciences have been deadened, we know exactly when we are committing sin. We are all sinners, and we need God's divine mercy. Baptism changes our souls. Confession heals our souls. Marriage unites our souls. Holy Orders allow priests to save our souls as Other Christs. And children are a gift of God, the fruit of love in our marriages, a means to our growth in holiness, and we should always be open to having one more soul in procreative cooperation with the Father Almighty.
