There IS Salvation Outside the Roman Catholic Church

Regardless of What The Roman Catholic Catechism Claims

We Can Confirm It Using the Holy Scriptures

Part III




PURPOSE

The overall purpose of this four-part document is to ensure that the fewest number of Christians - mostly Catholic - do not fall in the death trap of adoring the False Christ who will be sprung upon the unsuspecting humanity right before the true Second Coming of Christ.

We wish to remind the reader that we consider: (a) the Catholic Faith the faith with most revealed truths - thus the most effective faith to establish a solid link with God; (b) and there was a real, valid and necessary Petrine Ministry which used to be fulfilled by the Bishop of Rome.


INTRODUCTION


In the First Part [1] of this document we explained the Theology which confirmed the reality that there is Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church. To do so we used the same document that Ratzinger's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith originally published, Dominus Iesus.

In the Second Part [2] we dismantled the efforts of  the second non-Pope after John Paul II, the Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio, who was, once again, trying to pass as a Divine Truth the lie that there is only Salvation from within the Roman Catholic Church  [3][4][5].

In Part III of this document we are going to quote directly from the Roman Catholic Church Catechism and, in an unassailable manner, dismantle their claim about said requirement once and for all.


DETAILS

Quoting from the appropriate section [6] of the official Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church...

845... "Outside the Church there is no salvation"

846 How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it.

The Administrators insist in confusing the faithful with the proverbial "smoke and mirrors" as they present the Body of Christ exclusively as the Roman Catholic Church. The Body of Christ is composed by all who strive to live and uphold the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ - it does not matter what group he/she belongs to. Otherwise we would be going against a fundamental teaching of Jesus Christ:

Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you. [Luke 9: 49-50]

Any claim of exclusivity goes against the crystal clear instructions of Jesus Christ - and that, using the term frequently used by the Roman Catholic Church Administration, is heresy!

But that is not all. If one is to believe that there is no Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church then, the members of the following Christian Churches - which appear in the Holy Scriptures - were not saved.

Jerusalem
Antioch
Corinth
Ephesus
Laodicea
Thessalonia
Smyrna
Pergamus
Thyatira
Sardis
etc., etc. Just to mention a few

A consideration which is utterly ridiculous!

Now they try, with the use of more of the proverbial "smoke and mirrors", to confuse the issue further:

831... Each particular Church is "catholic"

832 "The Church of Christ is really present in all legitimately organized local groups of the faithful, which, in so far as they are united to their pastors, are also quite appropriately called Churches in the New Testament.... In them the faithful are gathered together through the preaching of the Gospel of Christ, and the mystery of the Lord's Supper is celebrated.... In these communities, though they may often be small and poor, or existing in the diaspora, Christ is present, through whose power and influence the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is constituted."

833 The phrase "particular church," which is the diocese (or eparchy), refers to a community of the Christian faithful in communion of faith and sacraments with their bishop ordained in apostolic succession. These particular Churches "are constituted after the model of the universal Church; it is in these and formed out of them that the one and unique Catholic Church exists."

As you may see, their point is that unless a group of individuals, who are striving to live by word and deed the Word of God, is not under the authoritative boot of a bishop ordained in apostolic succession, that group will not be saved.

Perhaps they have forgotten that many of the churches in the area between the time of the Crucifixion of Jesus and the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem were established by Paul who was not a member of the original twelve. As a matter of fact, Paul was "ordained" by Jesus via a direct supernatural intervention while using Ananias - a disciple, but not one of the Twelve - for the imposition of hands upon Paul. [Acts 9:1-20]

May those who have eyes, See and those who have ears, Hear!


CONCLUSION

We close the third part of this series of documents by, once again, reminding all of the crystal clear position of our Lord Jesus Christ - the True, and only, Head of the Mystical Body of Christ:

Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you. [Luke 9: 49-50]

Which is confirmed and expanded by Mark:

Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him. But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me. For he that is not against you, is for you. For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Mark 9:38-41]

miguel de Portugal directs now to the Temple Masters of our time - the Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church -  in the Holy Name of God,  the same words Jesus used when addressing the Temple Masters of His time:

Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. [Matthew 23:15]


EPILOGUE

Never forget that....

....as I have been with Moses, so will I be with thee: I will not leave thee, nor forsake thee. [Josue 1:5]

and

Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?
As it is written: For thy sake we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us.

 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. [Romans 8:35-39]
