Thank you for this… debate so necessary during these dark times…! As St. Leonard of Port Maurice stated clearly... Our Lord gives every possible means for a person to be saved...
You stated clearly what needed to be said. God bless you!
In Jesus and Mary,
It's interesting how Pinesap complained about Brother Peter's commitment to precision and accuracy when examining the documents of the Church, especially her infallible and dogmatic statements. What an astounding admission! Pinesap not only wants to promote the lie of "invincible ignorance" - he thinks everyone should be as ignorant as possible. Objective truth means nothing to him; what's important, he says, are 'nuances,' No wonder he denies that Christ is the Light of the world. Pinesap is what St. Paul warned of in 2 Cor. 11:3: “But I fear lest, as the serpent seduced Eve by his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted, and fall from the simplicity that is in Christ.” Pinesap uses the same lie Satan used: 'No, Eve, God didn't mean what he said. You've got to look for nuances."
In so many ways, this is a very useful debate for people to listen to. In addition to demonstrating the tactics heretics use to the detriment of themselves and others, it also illustrates why heretics are excluded from the Kingdom of God on earth and, unless they convert, from the Kingdom of God in heaven. Heretics worship a false god. As someone has pointed out, Pinesap denies Divine Providence. Pinesap thinks God does not know who will love and obey Him, and who will not - and that God must wait until people live out their lives on earth to find out. And then, Pinesap tells us, God will make it right by saving those persons just n the nick of time - at their death or even after their death - just prior to their falling into hell. I wonder if Pinesap thinks God might even apologize to such people for the mistake Pinesap is actually accusing God of having made: depriving these good people of the true faith while they lived on earth? Imagining that he can make his disgusting heretical position more palatable, Pinesap assures us (repeatedly) that the number of those person is very, very small. God doesn't miss that many.
Hope Pinesap has enough good will to realize that, through this debate, God has given him a golden opportunity to recognize the hideousness of his positions, repent of them, and convert to the true Catholic faith - while there is still time to do so.
