.@DouthatNYT there is a famous article about the right and wrong way to read the Denzinger (and Denz has been UPDATED more than 40 times)
Denzinger's 3870-3873 has a mistake.
The Letter of the Holy Office 1949 has been placed in the Denzinger-Schonmetzer.
It has a mistake.
It should not have been included in the Denzinger.
1. Hypothetical cases cannot be exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
2. We do not know any one in the present times (2016) saved without the baptism of water in the Catholic Church. Physically this is unknowable.
3. No one in the past could have seen or known someone saved without the baptism of water.This is not possible for human beings and the Church does not recognise this ability in any one.
Yet the Denzinger entry says there are exceptions to the Feeneyite interpretation of the dogma on exclusive salvation in the Church.How can be in Heaven be visible on earth ? This cannot be the teaching of the Holy Spirit.
DENZINGER SAYS THE DEAD ARE VISIBLE TO ALL OF US.IT'S OFFICIAL
The Level 4 error is there in Ad Gentes 7 and Lumen Gentium 14 of Vatican Council II
