Rock Hudson Repented Before His Death

Most folks remember Rock Hudson and his sad death as the result of AIDS. What many don't know, according to Brennan Manning in The Ragamuffin Gospel, is that before his death he called for a priest to come to his death bed where he confessed his sins and repented.

I know there are those who feel like it's unfair for someone to live a life of debauchery and then at the last minute seek the mercy of God. But isn't what this parable is all about?:

Quote:
Matthew 20:1-15
“For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. 2 He agreed to pay them a denarius[a] for the day and sent them into his vineyard.

3 “About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. 4 He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ 5 So they went.

“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. 6 About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’

7 “‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.

“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’

8 “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’

9 “The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. 11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 12 ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’

13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?'"

So Catholics are saved? Confession to a Catholic Priest and repentance alone is enough? Something is missing here.

If someone repents sincerely, does it matter what the scenario is?

So Rock goes to what he knows. But isn't the motive and faith what matters to the Lord?

The UPC holds the keys to Kingdom and death and hell. Do not ask questions. Do as you are told.

Samaritans had faith, and went with what they knew, and Jesus said "You don't know what you worship."

So, a right understanding of truth appears to be necessary.

Re: Rock Hudson Repented Before His Death

Did the priest baptize him in Jesus' name? Did he speak in tongues (other than Latin)? Gotta learn the code words before Saint Pete will open the gate.
