Mother Teresa was not a saint.

If Mother Teresa was a true saint she would have at least tried to convert those she took care of in India. She didn't. To this day, conversion is not one of the main aims of the order she founded....Catholic Missionaries of Charity.

Mother Teresa didn't even convert people on their deathbeds.

She once said: "I love all religions." So, does that mean she loves the religions of Satan, idolatry, and religions that reject Christ?

Mother Teresa worshiped and knelt before a statue of Buddha. She encouraged others to pray to their own "god". Her nuns even participated in pagan rites of non-Christian religions.

Mother Teresa once said that "these non-Catholics are going to Heaven even if they reject Christ, as long as they are good people." So man and his choice of religion are more important than Jesus Christ.

1 John 5:11-12: "And this is the testimony, that God has given us to eternal life. And this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son, hath life. He that hath not the Son, hath not life."

Let's not forget the fact that her "centers" were really just places for people to die. She let them suffer, didn't allow them to see their families and all so that they could suffer the pains of death because SHE believed that was what was right. There is no such thing as a saint.

I dont claim to know all about religion, but I feel that people that live a good life and arent greedy, be they Christians, Muslims, Hindu, Buddhists, even Jews (whose basic personalities I dont really care for) will make it to Heaven if they are for the most part good people.

I agree with Bella 50-50. Or I can even trade in a 60-40.

There are some valid points in there.

Mother Teresa's mission was to minister to the sick and dying, to help them die with dignity. Her mission was not to convert.

I know she accepted stolen money from Charles Keating, “now serving a ten-year sentence for his part in the savings and loan scandal.” Keating, a “Catholic fundamentalist”, gave Mother Teresa one and a quarter million dollars and “the use of his private jet.”
She refused to give the money back, it seems knowing it was stolen money did not bother her.
She was also known to have gone to some of the finest and costliest clinics and hospitals in the West during her bouts with heart trouble and old age.”
