  • If I speak with the tongues of men, and of Angels,
    and have not charity, I am become a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
    And if I should have prophecy, and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge: and I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
    And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profits me nothing.
    Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely, is not puffed up,
    Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil.
    Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoices with the truth: Beareth all things, believeth  all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
    Charity never faileth; whether prophesies shall be made void, or tongues shall cease, or knowledge be destroyed.
    For we know in part and we prophesy  in part. But if that which is perfect shall come,
    When I was a child that which which is part shall be done away with.
    When I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away the things of a child.
    WE SEE NOW THROUGH A GLASS IN AN OBSCURE MANNER : . nOW i KNOW IN PART  : but then face to face. Now I know in part : but then I shall know even as
    I am known.
    And now there remain, faith, hope, charity : but the greatest of these is charity.    

    May Father's soul rest in peace, and eternal light shine upon him.

  • I already did. They died(and weren't even saved as such, they went to Hell first of all) under the Old Covenant. Entirely different ruleset to what we have now. There was no baptism back then, so how could BOD have saved them? And again, they weren't even saved - they were sent to Hell before Christ freed them. Unless you're implying that implicit BOD can bring souls that are already in Hell to Heaven, the scenarios aren't even remotely comparable. Obviously the OT Fathers weren't condemned to eternal damnation for being "outside "of a Church that didn't yet exist or not professing faith in dogma that had not yet been revealed. None of that has anything to do with BOD which, as the first word of the acronym suggests, is a New Covenant concept.

    Sorry, yet once again you did not answer the simple question, despite going on and on and on on your tangent. And most of the post is consumed with a concept I didn't even use, "saved" in the sense of in heaven. And even then, you made yourself look rather odd (to put it kindly) in light of your own post above, where you compared "justification" and "salvation" - here:


    Quote
    The "state wherein man is born a child of the first Adam" clearly refers to Original Sin. Therefore, the text clearly says that justification removes the stain of Original Sin and puts someone in a state of grace. No one who perishes in a state of grace can be damned, that is de fide. So one who is justified is saved, by definition(note that the state of justification can be temporarily lost by way of mortal sin).

    If one who is justified is saved, and justification can be effected by the desire for baptism, as is taught by Trent, then one may be saved by desire for baptism. 

    Now, my question, yet again, was this (with the operative words you ignored or lost focus of highlighted): how were the OT saints justified?

    It might do you well to review your own words above, too, where you say "one who is justified is saved." 

    So, unless you want to maintain the OT saints didn't need to be "justified" - or, as you correctly state, be "put . . . in a state of grace" - before they died so that they could end up "saved" in heaven -

    How were the OT saints justified?

  • Sorry, fellas, that's my fault. Someone cited the Dimonds as some sort of example of sedevacantists. I just wanted to set the record straight with those guys, but that wasn't really a relevant contribution in a thread devoted to paying last respects to Fr. Cekada.
    True.  I suggest no one post or answer anything not having to do with Fr. Cekada.

    By worshiping God, believing in a redeemer to come and living a moral life.

    You asked: "Stated differently: weren't the OT saints justified by something meeting the definition of an "implicit" baptism of desire?"

    I explained why BOD was not applicable. You complained. I explained it again in excruciating detail. You complained. And now you're getting all snarky and pretending I ignored your post because you can't even bloody remember what you said.

    I didn't care to answer how the OT Fathers were justified(which they weren't in the proper sense, at least not until centuries/millennia after death); they're completely irrelevant to the question of BOD, as I've explained multiple times now.

    Next time you want to get all snarky and play the wise guy, maybe try remembering your own words before you paint yourself like even more of an idiot.

    Right. You didn't answer the question. Glad that's done.

    Not when the question turns on St. Alphonsus's definition, which I quoted and referred to in posing the question. 

    Hopefully we're done, and I'll discuss the issue with others who want to address the question.

    Three times I've answered this question.

    Not my fault you can neither read nor remember your own words.

    Of course the problem is not that I "didn't answer the question", which I have three times now. The problem is that I haven't given you the answer you want: that Baptism of Desire somehow saved souls before either salvation or baptism was a thing.

    Thank you, Stubborn.

    I'll quote your response and continue with this issue in the other thread where more appropriate.

    Or it might be better to start a new topic.

    You keeping digging a bigger hole in an attempt to justify yourself. 

    There was a time when salvation wasn't a thing? Please. 

    And to be saved, man always had to be justified by the grace of God.

    Let's take this elsewhere. I'll start a new thread. 

    I'll end this here with: Father Cekada, pray for us
