WHERE’S MOTHER TERESA NOW?

THIS IS A GOOD QUESTION ....AND

IT DESERVES A GOOD ANSWER.

THIS IS A QUESTION THAT OFTEN CROSSES OUR MIND WHEN WE THINK OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED.

IF YOU SEARCH ALL THE RELIGIONS ON EARTH, YOU WILL FIND THAT THERE ARE ONLY 5 POSSIBILITIES WHEN YOU DIE...

 

1. YOU GO TO PURGATORY

2. YOU GET REINCARNATED

3. YOU’RE ANNIHILATED FOREVER

4. YOU GO TO HEAVEN

5. YOU GO TO HELL

 
****************************************************************************************

IN THIS PAPER WE’LL EXAMINE WHAT MOTHER TERESA HAD TO SAY ABOUT GETTING TO HEAVEN AND WE’LL

COMPARE THIS TO WHAT THE

KING  JAMES BIBLE HAS TO SAY.

AFTER READING THIS BROCHURE

YOU’LL BE IN NO DOUBT AS TO WHERE MOTHER TERESA IS

SPENDING ETERNITY.

 

1. MOTHER TERESA BELIEVED IN

MANY WAYS TO HEAVEN

She considered that there were many ways to heaven - Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and other religions were acceptable ways to her.


 THE BIBLE SAYS:

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME.”  (John 14:6)

“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.”  (John 3:18)

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the WRATH OF GOD ABIDETH ON HIM.” (John 3:36)

“That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. HE THAT HONOURETH NOT THE SON HONOURETH NOT THE FATHER which hath sent him.” (John 5:23) “WHOSOEVER DENlETH THE SON, THE SAME HATH NOT THE FATHER: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”  (1 John 2:23)

“He that hath the Son hath life; and HE THAT HATH NOT THE SON OF GOD HATH NOT LIFE.” (1John5:12)

COMMENT:

 HOW CLEAR IS CLEAR? On this evidence, is the dear Mother in Heaven or Hell?


2. MOTHER TERESA BELIEVED THAT WE MUST WORK TO GET TO HEAVEN

She believed that the chief means of salvation is through the sacraments ministered by the Roman Catholic church i.e. the mass, baptism, confession and last rites.


 THE BIBLE SAYS:

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

NOT OF WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” (Romans 11:6)

BUT TO HIM THAT WORKETH NOT, but believeth on him that justifeth the ungodly, HIS FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (Romans 4:5)

HOW CLEAR IS CLEAR? On this evidence, is the dear Mother in Heaven or Hell?


3. MOTHER TERESA BELIEVED THAT NO-ONE CAN KNOW WHERE THEY’LL GO AFTER THEY DIE.

This is why prayers are offered and masses performed for the dead.

Cardinal Krol, former spiritual leader for Philadelphia’s one million Catholics, said that his major worries were “My salvation and getting to heaven.” The Vatican’s highest theological authority, Cardinal Ratzinger, (when this Brochure was first written, now the pope) expresses the same concern for his salvation. New York’s Cardinal O’Connor says “Church teaching is that I don’t know, at any given moment, what my eternal future will be. I can hope, pray, do my very best - but I still don’t know. Pope John II doesn’t know that he will go to heaven, nor does Mother Teresa of Calcutta...”.

The latter expressed her tenuous hope at the 1993 Presidential Prayer breakfast: “One of the most demanding things for me is traveling everywhere - and with publicity. I have said to Jesus that if I don’t go to heaven for anything else, I will be going to heaven for all the traveling and the publicity, because it has purified me and sacrificed me and made me really ready to go to heaven.”

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may KNOW (present absolute certainty) that ye HAVE (present possession) eternal life.” (1John 5:13)

“He that believeth on the Son HATH (past tense) everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall NEVER perish.” (John 10:27-28).

Now the word “never” here comes from four different Greek words - OUME, EIS, HO, and AION.

OUME means “not at all, by no means, in no case never.”

EIS means “place, time, purpose”.

HO means “male, female or even neuter.” AION means “perpetually, eternally.” When you put them together, we see that when Christ said “never”. He meant “never”.

John 10:28 now reads;

“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall NOT AT ALL, BY NO MEANS, IN NO CASE, IN ANY PLACE, AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY PURPOSE, WHETHER THEY ARE MALE OR FEMALE, PERPETUALLY AND ETERNALLY ever perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

 COMMENT:

Anyone who places his hope for salvation in anything (such as ability to remain faithful to Christ, good works, sacraments, prayers, rituals or baptism) in addition to Christ’s sacrifice of Himself for our sins upon the cross, has not believed Jesus Christ and his promise. He/she has rejected God’s Word and has denied the gospel.

 HOW CLEAR IS CLEAR? On this evidence, is the dear Mother in Heaven or Hell?


 4. MOTHER TERESA BELIEVED THAT PERSONAL SUFFERING HELPED TO ACHIEVE ONE’S SALVATION

Her patients were not given proper medication and that the beds, furnishings and general conditions more closely resembled extermination camps rather than hospitals and clinics. They weren’t given painkillers beyond aspirin for the sort of pain that went with terminal cancer. Many Catholic nuns and priests wear hair undergarments and put stones in their shoes, whip themselves and try to merit heaven by suffering. Poverty and suffering are not simply endured but are sought after and even created.

Mother Teresa’s bank accounts had tens of millions of dollars so that she could afford all the food, heat, furnishings and medical attention ever needed. Hereby Mother Teresa hoped to help all her patients to heaven through the suffering she imposed on them.


WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”(Romans 10: 13).

Comment: NOT whosoever shall call upon the name of suffering, the church, the priest, good works or baptism shall be saved! When Mother Teresa had heart trouble and old age complications, she checked into the finest and costliest clinics in the West.

HOW CLEAR IS CLEAR? On this evidence, is the dear Mother in Heaven or Hell?

 
5. MOTHER TERESA BELIEVED THAT BAPTISM COULD SAVE HER PATIENTS

Her assistants would put damp cloths on the fevered brows and say the magic formula that allegedly erased original sin and gave entrance into heaven.

 

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:

“For by grace are ye saved through faith;

and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

HOW CLEAR IS CLEAR? On this evidence,

is the dear Mother in Heaven or Hell?

 
CONCLUSION

 
Unfortunately Mother Teresa believed in salvation by faith PLUS works. She now joins every Pope and hundreds of millions of Roman Catholics in hell. If she didn’t repent of believing in her own works and also in Christ, God has no choice but to send her to hell.

The Bible clearly points out that being saved (going to heaven) is the result of trusting alone (having faith alone) in the finished work of Jesus Christ alone. When Jesus died on the cross, He took His own blood and wrote across everybody’s sins (past, present and future sins) - PAID IN FULL! CANCELLED! AND THAT’S WHY WE CAN CALL UPON HIM ALONE TO SAVE US.
