Can bad doctrine send you to Hell?

The few assembled on this forum are proof enough that Roman Catholics and Protestants and Mormons and JW's will never agree on certain points of doctrine. In fact within each denomination, you will also find disagreement.
This comes as no surprise since we are all still pretty messed up people. A large percentage of confessing 'christians' still suffer the same troubles as non christians as we play out our own little dramas we think important.

Now the question "how much wrong doctrine, dogma etc. must we embrace to lose our salvation"? In fact, can we lose our salvation by embracing wrong doctrine or do we just put ourselves in danger of never seeing the full life Christ has provided manifesting in our lives?

Will we ever see 'His kingdom come and His will being done' or will we just play our pitiful little parts on this stage and never see what could have been?

I beleive you are prosyletizing? Your recurrent theme is obedience to the Catholic church."

Jwmcmac replies:

Maybe I am. I'm not sure any Christian can talk CHRIST w/out being a bit guilty of preaching.

Sorry about that.

John Paul II was very good at using the direct words of CHRIST from Scripture in HIS common conversation as Pope . . . but without sounding as if he were Preaching.

I think that I am 'explaining' what I 'Believe' or my 'opinions', whichever the substance may be.

Since I am not trying to 'convert' anyone . . . as my purpose . . . I'm not sure that I can say I am prosyletizing (I had to look at your spelling just to get that word spelled -- then went and looked it up . . . "proselytizing").

I am wanting to express as clearly as I can as to what I believe is 'Obedience' and the need for it. Somewhat, I am also talking to myself as much as to those who may read what I wrote . . . and as always . . . I'm trying to express as clearly as I can as to what the Church Teaches me about Obedience.

It simply is the main attitude of CHRIST . . . to humbly Obey, even unto death on a Cross.

Thanks Jglogan.

GOD Bless you and us all.
