Back to my original question though- [remembering I haven't been to this thread for a while]
Mother Teresa's actions alone should qualify her for heaven.. but apparently if she were not baptized she'd got go to hell.
If someone did as much 'good' as she did, yet had no exposure to christianity and so remained unchristened.. would she not qualify for heaven
considering baptism is a human action?
I would like to try again riley. I am a Catholic Christian so my answer may not be the same as you would get from someone else. This is my faith.
Mother Teresa would go to limbo. No one can see the face of God until they are perfect. An unbaptized person still has original sin. A person
leading a saintly life style, with no personal sin, would go to limbo.
Unbaptized babies and aborted babies also go to limbo.
This is not heaven or hell. Those in limbo do not see the face of God. And, seemingly do not grieve over this. I know, I know, Mother Teresa lived
her life for God, and surely would grieve if she could not see the face of God in heaven. This was why I originally answered your question that
Mother Theresa was baptized.
Here is a link with probably more information (Catholic in nature) than you wanted to know.
