Jimmy Akins on Catholic Answers denies the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and Ad Gentes 7, Vatican Council II which says all need faith and baptism for salvation. Instead he suggests that those in invincible ignorance are the ordinary means of salvation and that all Jews(3:32) do not need to convert into the Church but only those who know about Jesus and the Church.Otherwise they just have to live good lives and they are saved.
He assumes that those who are saved through no fault of their own are people who are known precisely in the present times and so they are an exception to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus and Ad Gentes 7 which says all need faith and baptism for salvation. All Jews,Muslims and other non Catholics do not have faith and baptism and so they are oriented to Hell according to Ad Gentes 7.
(6:25) 'In terms of the need to be Catholic,' Jimmy Akins says, 'the Catholic Church would say, if you have an awareness, if you have seen enough evidence that the Catholic Church was founded by Christ and that it's his will for you and you need to embrace it and if you consciously say,"Hey I'm not going to even though I know Jesus wants me to" ,that's to turn your back on Jesus and not accept salvation on his terms one can endanger one's salvation in that way'.
Those who know or do not know are known only to God. So why does Jimmy Akins consider this an exception to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus. There is no such known case in 2014. Is he assuming that these are known cases in the present times and so are physical exceptions to extra ecclesiam nulla salus ? Does it mean that LG 16 ( invincible ignorance) contradicts AG 7 ( all need faith and baptism for salvation) for him? Vatican Council II contradicts itself for Catholic Answers? This is irrational.LG 16 is not a known exception to the traditional interpretation on salvation. This is a false inference of Akins.
(7:00) 'The majority of people who are outside the Catholic Church have not seen that evidence presumably ,'continues the Catholic Answers EWTN,National Catholic Register apologist,'so as long as they are working with God and following him the best that they are able then God still works with them and they still can be saved.' This is false. The majority of people are oriented to Hell according to Vatican Council II, Ad Gentes 7, since they do not have 'faith and baptism'.
He does not even tell the Lutheran who has asked the question, that he is on the way to Hell since he does not have Catholic Faith (AG 7) which includes the Sacraments and the faith and moral teachings of the Catholic Church.
