Some excellent articles that I have been reading on Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus:
The following costs $4.50, but is definitively worth it:
Some points to take away from these articles:
1) We can accept Baptism of Blood and Baptism of Desire as being theological hypotheticals, while asserting, in reality, that they are null sets, that is, devoid of any actual human beings.
2) Baptism of Desire & Blood were never defined dogmas, nor was their "denial" ever condemned by the Church. Peter Abelard is a case in point on this.
3) Saint Augustine, in his final years, did not hold to Baptism of Desire. We have the heretic Father Karl Rahner to thank for that observation.
I am sort of busy right now, so I will not be responding to this thread, although, I will read the responses. I just wanted to share these excellent resources with the forum.
Blessings to Everyone!
P.S. Thanks to our beloved moderator for recommending these resources!!
