Are Catholics Saved?

Question:

A gentlemen who is an elder (not minister) in a fundamentalist church, claims he has the ability to look into someone’s eyes and know if that person is “saved”. I thought only Jesus knows who is saved. What bible verse(s) would address that issue. He used this statement in the context that Catholics are NOT saved.

Answer:

Here are some verses you can point out to him:

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Matthew 7:1-2)

“Jesus answered, ‘Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going. You judge by human standards; I pass judgment on no one. But if I do judge, my decisions are right, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.'” (John 8:14-16)

“Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.” (Romans 14:4)

“You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat.” (Romans 14:10)

“I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.” (1 Cor 4:3)

“Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.” (1 Cor 4:5)
