|Dr. Couch, what is your view of Mother Teresa?|
ANSWER: Only God will be the final Judge of her salvation, but from all of the evidence, it is doubtful that she trusted Christ alone as her Savior. It is a fact she taught that suffering in death for the poor opened the door for heaven. In other words, suffering was a work for redemption. Most Catholics believe Christ is a Savior, but the Church does the work of salvation for the individual. The emphasis on personal faith in Christ alone is not taught. While all can admire her work of charity, charity does not save!
Thanks for asking.
