The video on the websites of the University of Bristol and the Conference of Catholic Bishops of England and Wales can cite no reference text in Vatican Council II to support their irrationality.
1) The video infers there are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and the traditonal teaching on all non Catholics needing to enter the Catholic Church for salvation.
Yet it is common knowledge that we humans cannot see the dead-saved in Heaven for them to be known exceptions to all needing to enter the Church.The dead who are saved are not visible to us.Prof.Gavin D'Costa and the Bishops of England and Wales cannot name any exception in 2014.
2) In the video Gavin D'Costa indicates Nostra Aetate, Vatican Council II mentions an exception to the traditional teaching on salvation in the Church. There is no such text in Vatican Council. Nostra Aetate 2 refers to the possibility of a non Catholic being saved in his religion.It does not state that this is a defacto, known case.So how can it be an exception to extra ecclesiam nulla salus? (1)
Gavin D'Costa and the Catholic bishops may reject the traditional teaching on Catholic salvation but they have no right to claim as follows:
1. We Catholics allegedly can see the dead-saved on earth.
2.These deceased visible to the naked eye are exceptions to all needing 'faith and baptism' (Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II) for salvation.
3.Nostra Aetate, Vatican Council II alleges that Catholics can see the dead who were saved with that 'ray of Truth' etc.
4. Nostra Aetate and Vatican Council II allege there are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.So there is known salvation outside the Church.
5.Since there are personally visible exceptions and Nostra Aetate allegedly states there are defacto, known exceptions there can be a Catholic Theology of Religions!?.-Lionel Andrades
Nostra Aetate does not state there are defacto, known cases saved in other religions
