Looking for comments.
How do you reconcile the existence of "saintly"persons who nevertheless steadfastly remain protestant with the fact that the Catholic church’s is the one true church instituted by Christ?
The protestants reject the sacraments, they are in a state of heresy, and even actively try to convince Catholics to convert to some form of protestantism. Yet, some seem to be wonderful, even saintly Christians that would put the best Catholic to shame. If the Church is what it claims to be, then how is it that some people can become wonderful Christians without it.
And I don’t think it’s an adequate response to simply say that God can do whatever he wants, because that begs the question.
On the other hand, this could be turned around and asked of protestants about saintly catholics as well.
