Who will be saved?

Recently I was talking with my best friend who tried to convince me that only about 144,000 people will be saved. I asked how he got that number and he tried to give me examples of prophecy from the bible. But to no avail, nowhere does it say in the bible that only a certain number of people will be saved. I asked him if Gods chosen people would be saved and he said most would go to hell, a few would be saved though. As a Catholic, I was wondering if he thinks that I am damned to hell forever. What do you think? Do you believe that only a select few will be saved and the rest will be damned?

I believe that there will be many people in heaven, whether it be millions, billions, or beyond i am not sure. A person could speculate for a lifetime of what heaven will be like.

Matthew 7:13
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Romans 5:19
For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.

Many will take the broad gate that leads to destruction but many will be made righteous by the obedience of Christ. If i had to make an opionion i would say that there will be more people in heaven than in hell. But then again only god knows.

Thank you Horicon for your post, I agree with you except I believe that there will be few people in heaven, but many people in both Hell and Purgatory. Hopefully more in purgatory and not in hell.

There is certainly NOT a set number like the Jehovah's witnesses will have us believe. But, I remember the Lord's words that the road is narrow and the number is few. I think it's a large part because of heresy. Even today, there are many great people that fall into believing people like Martin Luther, who was just one heretic.

We just have to remain in the Church, regularly receive the Sacraments, and remain in grace.
