    • Tom, you’re welcome! A difficult thing for me is to hear my sweet cousin repeat the papal line about inclusivism in salvation. Perhaps inclusivism scares her because her own family is mostly noncommittal except in a general way – to Christ’s golden rule of love but not to Him as Lord and Saviour from sin and death. Yes, He wants us to welcome the lost and we must pray to be light and salt! Thank you, Tom!

  1. I must admit I’ve often become angry and frustrated with this gospel of inclusivism. It’s even seeping deep into evangelicalism. Well, it’s the Lord’s work and I’m just an unworthy vessel. Light and salt. Yup! I pray for your cousin.

  2. I read two of these when I first came out of Catholicism very good! I also like the one the former nun, Ann Collins wrote. Very helpful, too! It is called “Unmasking Catholicism”. Of course the system claims she is not real….
