Please dont put this in the traditionalist section. I am not a traditionalist.
I saw on another thread that a Catholic was thinking of leaving t he Church. People gave reasons for not leaving: ‘Think of what you’ll be missing, Eucharist, Confession, Rosary, ect…’
But there didnt seem to be anyone mentioning that Catholics who leave the Church will be going to hell, because there is No Salvation for those who know that the Catholic Church is the True Faith, which is found in the Catechism:
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.336]
847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church:
Some mentioned that the person was ignorant of this truth. But how will they know if we dont tell them. Ignorance of a Catholic not knowing this seems to me to be willful ignorance.
What do you all think?
