Are all properly Baptized Christians, Catholic? In other words, are non-Catholic Christians, Catholic and don’t know it, or at least, “part” Catholic?
Can we agree that, on all the points where Catholics and Protestants agree that those beliefs were Catholic beliefs before they were Protestant beliefs?
Therefore, all non-Catholic Christian beliefs the originate in Catholicism are Catholic beliefs, shared by non-Catholic Christians?
Additionally, if a non-Catholic Christian agrees with 90% of what the Catholic Church teaches, isn’t that person, in a sense….90% Catholic in his/her beliefs?
First came Jesus (New Testament era.) …Then came the 12 Apostles….Then came His Catholic Church….Then, 300-500 years later, came the Bible. ….Then another 1000 years came Protestant, non-Catholic Christians.
The Bible is a Catholic book, which was collected, sorted, with some verses accepted and others rejected, approved and authorized by the Roman Catholic Church and by Roman Catholic Popes; protected, preserved and passed down to all the world, including non-Catholic Protestant Christians.
Are all properly Baptized Christians, Catholic? How is it possible for a non-Catholic Christian denomination to use a Catholic book, the Bible and who share Catholic beliefs… not be “part" Catholic”?
