    "quote from article" ......But I disagree with Cal’s assumption that belief in Jesus Christ’s claims of divinity excludes the possibility of followers of non-Christians religions from finding within their own traditions a participation in the same truth. Elements of goodness and truth found outside the structure of Christianity may still lead its followers in the right direction.

    In other words, as a Catholic Christian, I believe the grace flowing from the redemptive act of the passion and death of Jesus Christ is capable of reaching out to all people of all places in ways we can never fully grasp. Christian belief in Jesus as the one mediator between God and man should not be understood as an eternal death sentence for the man born in a remote jungle who will never hear the name of Jesus. In God’s limitless creativity, he will always find ways to present himself as a gift to each of his beloved. It is fair to say, then, we are responsible to God in as much as God reveals himself to us....

    Good job I followed the link - until I did, I thought they were your own words. I must admit I was finding difficulty in imagine you as a Catholic (with a capital C)! Besides, I missed the apostrophe, and took "Cals" to mean Calvinists . :laugh:

    I once heard the late, great Dr. Adrian Rogers say that if there were any other way to come to God other than through the Lord Jesus Christ----then God's trip to Calvary was the "blunder of the Ages"

    The Caotholic nutjob in the op insists that folks are redeemed through Christs work on the cross whether they believe in him or not.

    I suspect you will find that a great majority of people will agree with this heresy. And why not? It lets them create a god in their own image.

    peace to you:praying:
