It is a good thing to have values – like what the Catholics teach – to live better. The Jewish belief system, and some others also teach good values.
The much better thing: get saved
Good moral values are needed. But it is a much better thing to get saved by the redemption of Jesus. What a difference that makes. It is an eternal life difference that Jesus gives!
“I give them eternal life”
Missing God’s Salvation
What good is it, really, to teach values for living —
* IF you are missing God’s one-off offer —
The problem with the Catholic Church is that their traditions hide true salvation in Christ by grace alone (among other doctrinal issues). I’ve heard from former Catholics that it is very difficult to become a born again believer when under Catholic teachings. Is that true with you?
That hell-of-a-problem with the Catholic Church is their belief system that takes Catholics down the broad road to eternal destruction. More and more so-called Protestant churches are also on that same road due to spiritual drift, straying off the narrow road laid-down by Jesus on the cross.
Catholics teach …and, very possibly your church may teach this also:
The knowledge which does not save you (such as what NAR false teachers teach)
* keeps you under condemnation
* keeps you bound in your sinfulness
* gives you no legal rights whatsoever – before Creator God

There are two roads to die for. Which road are you on? Do you know the difference?
They all took a short-cut, or found themselves on some broad and gorgeous avenue they just could not bear to leave. And so, they took that much more traveled road.
Our choice is between: The rarely taken straight and narrow — and — the busy Broad Way. You’ll have to die for either choice. Where you going?

“The late Cardinal Pell epitomized the Catholic gut. A staunch champion of Catholic moral teaching, he was also known for his personal compassion towards the poor, the exploited, and those who were alienated from the Church.”
“It is a set of values inspired by Jesus Christ. They include faith, hope and love, a sense of fairness, an abhorrence of hypocrisy, and the imperative to stand up for what is right, even when it means confronting powerful oppressors.”
“Some have departed”…”for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel”
They went out from us [seeming at first to be Christians], but they were not really of us [because they were not truly born again and spiritually transformed]; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out [teaching false doctrine], so that it would be clearly shown that none of them are of us.
– 1 John 2:19
“…the law is made …for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel”
– 1 Timothy 1:6-11
If we love the world, and call our self “Christian”, then we are “serving two masters” (Matthew 6:24). And you know what Jesus said about that:
“…where your treasure is, there your heart [your wishes, your desires; that on which your life centers] will be also.”
– Matthew 6:21
22 “The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts].
23 But if your eye is bad [spiritually blind], your whole body will be full of darkness [devoid of God’s precepts]. So if the [very] light inside you [your inner self, your heart, your conscience] is darkness, how great and terrible is that darkness!
– Matthew 6:22-23

I’ve taken a firm grip on the real thing: The Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the one and only from Jesus as shared by those who met Him personally: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Paul. They share with us what really is the actual salvation in Christ.
What about you?
Waiting may get you beheaded – sooner than you think…“Chrislam” was officially established as THE Official One World Religion, as Catholic Pope Francis partnered with forces of Darkness in the VII Congress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, on September 15th, 2022 in the Kazakh capital, Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.
