I ran across this in Dr.Alan Schreck’s book (Professor of Theology at Steubenville) when I was researching my paper on the Church dogma “no salvation outside the Church” for masters in theology:
“Catholic Christians must avoid two extremes in considering the salvation of non-Christians. THEY SHOULD AVOID PRESUMING THAT THOSE WHO DONT BELIEVE IN JESUS AND HIS GOSPEL WILL NECESSARILY BE CONDEMNED, but neither should Catholics presume that these people will be saved without accepting the gospel.” (p20 Catholic and Christian)
Doesn’t the Catholic Church teach though that FAITH IN CHRIST IS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION (at least implicitly)?
Is Alan Schreck in error?
