When Jesus referred to belief and baptism it was in a particular church, a particular community, the Catholic Church

Gyula Benczúr, The Baptism of Vajk (1875)

“He who believes will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” In contrast, Jesus Christ explicitly gives two conditions for salvation: belief and baptism. “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16). There’s just no getting around those three extra words, and the fact that the Evangelical position ignores that explicit condition for salvation shows it to be in error.
Those words were said in a particular community, a particular church which still exists today. There’s no way of getting around that ! – for evangelicals.

Vatican Council says we really cannot have a reasonable hope that all men are saved : When did Fr.Barron say this ?

The Bible mentions Hell some 18 times. Jesus repeatedly tells us about Hell. How would Balthasar or any one else know otherwise

Firstly, they are theories.Secondly, being theories they are not exceptions to EENS
