I think a common Catholic teaching is constantly blocking up your thoughts. Catholics teach that you must obey and do good works to go to heaven.
That was not the meesage of the Savior. If God expected us to be perfect he would not have sent his Son to die in our stead, to take on our punishment.
Agreed. As someone who was raised Catholic, this is an issue I have with the Catholic Church. I've been trying to figure out a way to say that without sounding too critical but your statement pretty much sums up what I wanted to point out.
If only those who avoided all sin went to heaven, it would be a very lonely place.
