Why do we have weak christians, especially catholics?
Because of the support we give to the protestant proposition that “once saved always saved” is real.In this view, all go to heaven, so why worry? This is why there is indifferentism to the brand of church attended. How many of you have heard catholics say,“well as long as he is going to some church.” As if it dosen’t make a bit of difference.
In simple words, “I’m not going to hell ever because it can’t happen to me, not me!
So I don’t need Sunday church, because I’m never going to hell over this, no way! No matter what the church says.”
We have been acusing Protestants of “once saved always saved” and here it is in our own backyard. It’s the secret mentality that “I’ll get there some how.” Or “it couldn’t/wouldn’t happen to me because I’m really not a bad guy.” Or “It’ll all work out in the end.”
Is this idea right or wrong? Or is there a stronger idea at work here besides OSAS?
What do you think?
