Just read this article and apparently the Pope made clear that we at Discovery Church (and thousands of other churches) are not real churches and don’t know how to point people to salvation in Jesus Christ. Wow. Sure, we’ve been called a cult already by some paranoid people, but now that the Pope is coming down on us, maybe we should just close up shop?!
What I do appreciate is a willingness to flat out state what he believes to be true. No beating around the bush there. Here’s what we believe to be true.
Jesus Christ is the only possible hope individuals have for salvation and eternal life – not the Catholic church, Discovery Church or any other church, religion or denomination – just Jesus.
