It’s a dogma of the church that one can’t have infallible certainty if they are in a state of grace because man’s reason can be subject to error. The only thing they can have infallible certainty in our things revealed through the church.
So here is where I’m confused…
The Church is saying we can’t know when something is infallible simply based on our own reasoning (such as knowing when we are in a state of grace)…but yet, we use our own reasoning to understand infallible teachings of the church.
We trust our own reasoning when we believe “We can’t trust our own reasoning”
Isn’t that a contradiction?
We do have the ability to know, through our own reason, when something is infallibly true (church dogmas)…so what makes that different from knowing we are in a state of grace through our own reasoning?
