ARE PROTESTANTS SHALL ALSO BE SAVED?

Pope Benedict XVI meeting Protestant leaders in Ecumenical Dialogue

MARK 9:40 “FOR HE THAT IS NOT AGAINST US IS FOR US.”
Does it mean, Protestants are also for Christ? And shall also be SAVED? hmmm… heheh 🙂
That’s a good question you ask there [Julio Jesoro] Louie Jay. There are men who out of sincere convictions are against the Church not for what it is but for what they think it is. If they are invincibly ignorant of the true gospel of Christ and of his Church these men can still attain salvation by the grace of God (Titus 2:11) if they follow the dictates of their conscience according to the light of truth that is shown to them. These men will be saved not because of their being a Muslim, a Buddhist, or a Protestant but because of the Catholic Truth which they also hold [like Muslims believe in one God and protestants believe in the Trinity and scriptures]. But since men in our fallen state is easily deceived by the Evil One (Rom 1:23-24) then there is the most urgent imperative to convert them to the Catholic Church in which alone Christ entrusted the fullness of salvific truth and salvific means. God does not outrightly condemn a person to hell because his name is not in the Catholic baptismal registry nor outrightly will admit a person into heaven just because his name is in the list. This heresy called Feeneyism has long been condemned by the Church. In present generation, there are many protestants who are born into a protestant environment and upbringing many of which are hostile to the Catholic Church. This men cannot be faulted with the same gravity of offense as the original reformers like Luther, Calvin, et al. But again, even though they possess some elements of truth but they lack the fullness which Christ willed for his followers which can be found in Christ’s Catholic Church ALONE.
