The source of the present Arian-like heresy throughout the Church today is due to the following points.
1.Rejecting the baptism of desire etc as being invisible and known only to God.
2.Assuming that the baptism of desire and being saved in in invincible ignorance refer to known cases in the present times.
3.In principle assuming hypothetical cases of the baptism of desire etc are objectively visible in the present times and then interpreting Vatican Council II with this irrationality.
4.Being unaware that this error of assuming the baptism of desire refers to visible instead of invisible cases.This error was there in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 which assumed that the baptism of desire etc refers to visible cases. .This is an error of the magisterium. It was then repeated in Vatican Council II by the Council Fathers.
You can check out the widespread heresy by asking Catholics the following questions.Ask the parish priest or the faculty of the local Catholic seminary.
1.From the philosophical point of view a catechumen desires to receive the baptism of water but he dies before he can receive it.This is a hypothetical case for us?
My answer is YES.It is a hypothetical case.
It would be hypothetical for us and known only to God.
2.So if someone says that this case of the catechumen is physically visible in 2016 and personally known to us then this would be false reasoning.? My answer is YES.
3.Would it violate the Principle of Non Contradiction if someone said this case was visible in the present times, and was personally known?
My answer Yes.
Since it is being assumed that something invisible is visible.It is being inferred that someone who does not exist is there on earth and known, someone who is not concrete and tangible it is assumed to be defacto and real in present time and space.
4.Similarly this case of a catechumen in the past too would be hypothetical for the people of that time, since it cannot be physically visible and known in personal cases?
My answer is YES.
No could have physically seen this catechumen saved, in Heaven or on earth.
FINAL TWO QUESTIONS
So here are the final two questions which show that magisterium's bad theology is based on bad philosophy and this has created an Arian like widespread heresy in the present times.
1) Do we personally know the dead now saved in invincible ignorance, a good conscience (LG 16) etc,can we see them, are they physically visible to us in 2016 ?
My answer is that they we cannot see them. They are not physically visible and personally known in our time and space.
2) Since we do not know any of these cases, in real life, they are not visible for us, there are no known exceptions to the literal interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, or Ad Gentes 7 which states 'all' need 'faith and baptism' for salvation? My answer is that they are not exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus . They were never exceptions in the first place.
