saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Vatican II, Francis, Protestants Belong To The Redeemed?

Vatican II, Francis, Protestants Belong To The Redeemed?

Francis prayed on January 25 in an ecumenical vespers together with Lutherans, Anglicans, Methodists and other Christians.

At this event Francis referred to "differences [that] tear us apart" but then claimed "that we belong to the people of the redeemed, to the same family of brothers and sisters loved by the only Father.”

According to Catholic teaching Confession and Holy Eucharist are not an optional but necessary in order to be redeemed.
Can heretics make an act of faith? No, for even though in their minds they assent to such and such a point of revealed doctrine, they do not give this assent on the word of God, but their own private judgement (V. 3 ). As regards the act of faith, are heretics more to be blamed than the impious or devils? Yes , because the word of God or His authority is not the motive of their assent. Can apostates make an act of faith? No, because their mind rejects entirely what formerly they believed on the word of God (XII.)

  1. Protestants can't ALL belong to the redeemed if they are living the Apostacy...!!! The same goes for Catholics who obey the Apostate Francis...!!! Romans 6:16 says: Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey, whether it be of sin unto death, or of obedience unto justice.
