It is most widely dwscargar for its elaboration of the Catholic dogma that the Catholic Church is the sole true Church of Christ. A Catholic dogmaExtra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus literally “no salvation outside the Church” has sometimes been interpreted as denying salvation to non-Catholic Christians as well as non-Christians, though Catholic teaching has long stressed the possibility of salvation for persons invincibly ignorant through no fault of their own of the Catholic Church’s necessity and thus not culpable for lacking communion with the Church.

In descargag 20th century this inclusive approach was expressed in the condemnation of Feeneyism and in the declaration of the Second Dlminus Councilwhich said that “the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator,” although domibus is ambiguous and numerous interpretations have arisen [ citation needed ].

Vatican II further affirmed that salvation could be available to people who had not even heard of Christ cf. While affirming the teaching of Lumen gentium “Light of the Nations”, the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church that came out of the Second Vatican Council that the Catholic Church “is the single Church of Christ” [2] and that “[t]his Church, constituted and organized as a society in the present world, subsists in the Catholic Church,” [2] Dominus Iesus offers further comments on what it means for the true Church to “subsist in” the Catholic Church.


The document states that, “[w]ith the expression subsistit inthe Second Vatican Council sought to harmonize two doctrinal statements: The document reserves the word “Church” for bodies that have preserved a ieeus episcopate and the descargarr and integral substance of the Eucharistic mystery.

The document uses the term “ecclesial community” from the Greek word ecclesiameaning “church” rather than “Church” for those Christian bodies not named in the preceding paragraph, most notably including all Protestants.

The document states that, although such Christian communities “are not Churches in the proper sense; however, those who are baptized in these communities are, by Baptism, incorporated in Christ and thus are in a certain communion, albeit imperfect, with the Church.

For the spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as means of salvation. The document declares that, although the Christian church is intended by God to be “the instrument for the salvation of all humanity,” such beliefs do not “lessen the sincere respect which the Church has for the religions of the world.

The document goes on to affirm the possibility that those who subscribe to non-Christian religions descaryar be saved while insisting that the means of such salvation must be Christ, and not the religion to which such a person subscribes: If they fail to respond in thought, word, and deed to that grace, not only shall they not be saved, but they shall be more severely judged.

Criticism of the document focused on passages such as the one stating that Protestant bodies “are not Churches in the proper sense” and “suffer from defects” and the one stating that non-Christian religions are “gravely deficient,” descargr paying less attention to the accompanying positive statements about both groups.


Some critics questioned the Church’s commitment to ecumenism.

In response to these criticisms, Pope John Paul II — who had personally endorsed, ratified, and confirmed Dominus Iesus — emphasized on October 2 of that year that this document did not say that non-Christians were denied salvation: John Paul II then issued on December 6 a statement to emphasize further that the Church continued in the position of Vatican II that salvation was available to believers of other faiths:.
