So I guess that the ladies cannot answer your question?
For such a serious Catholic, that seems a rather crude and worldly thing to say.
You know, I never realized what that expression meant. I never really thought about it. I will never use it again. Also, I didn't realize you were a lady.
I don't have that knowledge, only God does.
While it is true that if he was baptized you cannot know for sure if he dies outside the Church or not, since he may have died with perfect contrition, but if he were unbaptized, you know he is outside of the Church.
Why worry about all those other people when you should really just consider your own situation and the fact that you are clearly on the road to hell yourself. The demon that is currently tormenting your mind will be the one allowed to take you there.
I definitely worry about my own salvation, but you think that I am on the road to hell because I reject your antipopes. I definitely do NOT worry about anything you
have to say.
If it were that easy to identify people who have gone to Hell, don't you think the Church would name some?
Anyone who dies outside of the Church is definitely in hell. If a baptized person showed no outward signs of repentance from heresy or schism, then it is a moral certainty that they are in hell.
To my knowledge, I haven't had a non-Catholic relative die yet, but I wouldn't hate one if they did, I would be more disappointed that they threw away the graces that God gave them. No one cares.
My grandfather was something else. He was a really funny guy and I loved him very much. He would laugh at all our jokes, even the lame ones. He would act surprised and say "Hokey doodle!" He drew caricatures and cartoons of most of the notable people in our town like the mayor, and all other sorts of people, including us kids. He taught me how to draw.
I never heard him swear, except on time when he said "da*nit", but I also never heard him say two words about God, outside of at family dinners when he would say "God is great, god is good, let us thank him for this food." Grandma is Anglican, and goes to 'church' regularly, but I never really knew Grandpa's stance.
Anyway, my Novus Ordo mother tried to get them to convert to 'Catholicism' (or what she thought was Catholicism) before he died. She brought a bunch of literature from what I understand, talking about the Early Church, but they wanted none of it. My uncle Brian got very angry about it (he is an atheist- he once said "Grandma is god") and my Uncle Michael never has any kind words for her, that I remember. I have broken all ties with the lot of them; they are evil to the core, and they love every bit of it.
There are appropriate contexts for every verse of Scripture I'm sure.St. Luke 14:26:
"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple."
My Grandfather is in hell. This is a moral certainty. He raised a family of apostates to love the world more than God, and paved the way to hell for most of them. I hate him. He is now blaspheming God and he will do so again and again for all eternity. I hate him, I hate him, I HATE him.
