Outsite of the Church there’s no salvation?
Indeed, that’s 100% the truth right there… the problem is with those, who, with their very lives honor God more than a Catholic who doesn’t even believe that Jesus is in the Eucharist, but like they say, that Catholic is ‘good’ people.
Please, this piece was made not to confuse you, but to tell you that Catholicism is beautiful, that it has the entire truth, and it’s worth fighting and dying for… bear with me.
Ecumenism is nothing more than a tool used nowadays in the most wicked way, to promote, that any path leads to God, which isn’t true, there is only one door which leads to God and that’s Jesus.
Ecumenism was meant to show the bride of Christ to all religions in order to honor Christ command: “Make disciples of all nations” (Mat 28:19), St Paul had a little of Ecumenism himself when people from different believes invited him to speak about Christ:
16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols. 17 So he reasoned in the synagogue with both Jews and God-fearing Greeks, as well as in the marketplace day by day with those who happened to be there. 18 A group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers began to debate with him. Some of them asked, “What is this babbler trying to say?” Others remarked, “He seems to be advocating foreign gods.” They said this because Paul was preaching the good news about Jesus and the resurrection. 19 Then THEY TOOK HIM AND BROUGHT HIM to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, “May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting?… 22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you… 30 In the past God OVERLOOKED SUCH IGNORANCE, but now He commands all people everywhere to repent. 31 For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the Man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead. 32 When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but OTHERS said, “We want to hear you again on this subject.” 33 At that, Paul left the Council. 34 Some of the people became followers of Paul and believed. (Acts 17:16-19, 22-23, 30-34)
What St Paul did right there, that’s true Ecumenism… not the Woodstock circus that nowadays priests have around the world… TRUE Ecumenism is about the opportunity to preach the truth through and about the one true faith, hands down… but that doesn’t mean, that we should shove the truth down anyone throats, like some do.
The Nostra Aetate document signed in the Vatican II council is the excuse of some, the license to kill most priests are using today with the ambiguous preaching that ‘we are ALL CHILDREN OF GOD.’ Yes we are, but we MUST preach the truth and beauty of the Gospel at all times in word and deed.
But what about those who are innocent? What about those who never heard the Gospel? What about those, with no fault of their own, who don’t know the truth and beauty of the tradition laid by our forefathers?
Take for example the 21 Egyptian Copts who were killed by Muslims on February 2015, due to their faith in Jesus Christ, they got martyred! What about Victoria Leigh Soto an evangelical, killed on December 14th 2012 by a disturbed man who was killing children like nothing… she died upholding Jesus teaching, dying for the little ones.
What about Mohammad Gulab who defended with his own life, ex-navy seal Marcus Luttrell? Gulab, Muslim that doesn’t know anything about Catholicism neither his village ,up, in the middle of nowhere in Afghanistan, but showed virtue compared only to the Samaritan (Luke 10:30-35) by defending the weak.
Marcus wasn’t crawling there with shrapnel in his legs, flashing the beauty of Catholicism and the truth laid in the sacraments to Gulab or the village, imagine, there are many places like that, in which, the feet of those who bring the good news, never has arrived.
We would never know if some of this people, ever, were preached the Gospel the right way, the Gospel laid in the one true faith, but people still condemn them to hell without ever knowing if they were innocent or not… this is why Catholics who condemn people to hell, they live condemned.
This is why the great saints NEVER shoved the truth to anyone’s throats, they preached Catholicism by words and silence through their example of life, they left the rest to God, didn’t St Francis evangelize thieves and Muslims? Did he shove the truth down their throats? No and that’s my point.
Those who are innocent will answer to God about how they lived, but imagine God telling someone “you’re going to hell because you weren’t Catholic”, and that soul’s reply: “what is catholic?”
What am I saying? That all religions leads to God? NO… That we should relax seeking the salvation of souls and ours? NO… We must work our salvation with fear and tremble (Phil 2:12)… What I’m saying IS that we should be prepared to fight for the faith, by proclaiming at all times the truth and beauty of the one true faith without shoving the truth down their throats.
It is because of her, the Catholic Church, that innocents gets an audience with Jesus and Jesus will acknowledge if they were innocent or not.
Read the bible, about how innocence is defended by Almighty Father, but those who preach religious indifferentism? They are twisting Almighty Father’s defense for the innocent, twisting His Holy Word.
Didn’t Jesus preach to the souls in captivity when he resurrected? (1 Peter 3:19) I know, that God has His contingencies to make the impossible possible (Mark 10:27), but still so few enters heaven, even in our own Church.
Outside of the Church there’s no salvation? Yes that’s true, but it is also true that those who are innocent, fall in the lap of the one true faith and it is because of Her they face Jesus, poor those who reject Him and poor those who promote a hellish ecumenism with the intention to promote that ‘all paths are good’ to get to Heaven.
We must go to great lengths to preach the Gospel everywhere, all around the world, to places were no Catholic has ever gone, but STOP preaching the condemnation of people who aren’t Catholic to hell, pray for the salvation of souls… let the condemning be done by Jesus.
Sheeps, reject those who preach a gospel without Jesus, teaching “we are all children of God”… just get ready to promote the beauty of Catholicism to all, no matter their background, do not condemn them, just evangelize them without pushing religion down their throats, let God condemn, do everything with Love and Love shall come back to you.
Tons of blessings
