“The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church.” (Pope Eugene IV, the Bull Cantate Domino, 1441.)
THEY REJECT THE DOGMA EENS (ABOVE) SINCE THEY ASSUME THAT THE FOLLOWING QUOTATIONS FROM THE CATECHISM AND VATICAN COUNCIL II ARE EXCEPTIONS. FOR ME THEY ARE NOT EXEPTIONS SINCE THEY REFER TO HYPOTHETICAL AND INVISIBLE PEOPLE IN 2017.
1 EXAMPLES OF HYPOTHETICAL REFERENCES IN THE CATECHISM 1. 'God is not limited to the Sacraments'(CCC 1257) '2.all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body'(CC(CCC 846). 3. Those 'justified by faith in Baptism are incorporated into Christ; they therefore have a right to be called Christians'(CCC 818). 4. They are 'joined in many ways to the baptized who are honored by the name of Christian, but do not profess the Catholic faith in its entirety or have not preserved unity or communion under the successor of Peter."(CCC 838). 5. 'theplan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims'(CCC 841). 2.
