ChristiaNet.com (http://www.christianet.com), the world's largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, asked participants in a survey, "Are Catholics Christians?" The majority of readers agree that any person who believes in Christ and follows His teachings to be a Christian. Overall many readers acknowledge that it isn't the denomination of a person but their heart toward Jesus that is the determining factor. One participant said, "If they have been born again, they are Believers. The rest is irrelevant." Every denomination is a combination of tares and wheat, some believe, and others don't.
Out of 188 people surveyed, 97 responded "yes" to the question. These readers overall seem to agree that the Catholic religion has many members who are Christians. Some of the controversy spoken of by participants with Catholics is that there are still some who revere other Saints including Mary, the mother of Jesus, over Christ. Others feel that Priests do not have the power to forgive sins as is portrayed through some organized denominations, but God who forgives through Christ, as He is the one who gave His life for all people, and it is only through His shed blood that anyone can be forgiven.
Forty-seven participants responded "no" to the question. Many feel that the Catholic religion teaches dogmas and rituals that are false and contrary to the teachings of the Bible. One Believer in this group wrote, "Catholics are under Roman Catholic (Vatican City) which brings slavery to my country and oppression to my people. Christianity is not oppression but instead gives life." Though many in this group were adamant about the false doctrine within the organized church, others felt that there were Christians within the denomination.
Forty-nine readers seem to be unsure about the Catholic religion. Some felt that there seems to be some non Biblical teaching in this denomination. Does the Bible teach that purgatory exists and that someone who is dead can be prayed into heaven? One participant said, "They pray for the dead to go to heaven out of purgatory when there isn't any such place." Since deception can take place in any denomination, Believers should pray for all people everywhere to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
