January 11/12, 2020 - The Baptism of the Lord
Are All Religions Equal?
(Responding to Amazon
The Amazon Synod, which happened in Rome in October 2019, is leaving some with the impression that there are many paths to heaven, that local traditions and indigenous beliefs are part of God’s revelation, that Catholic Salvation is consistent in celebrating the diversity of religions, and that we have a reasonable hope all are saved. The message coming out of Rome seems confusing.
In this video, Catholic Speaker Ken Yasinski addresses Catholic Salvation and questions like:
Do we have a reasonable hope that all are saved?
Does God actively will the diversity of religions?
Are all religions equal?
Is hell empty?
What about paragraph 846 in the Catechism that states "Outside the Church there is no salvation."
Ken Yasinski has been speaking full time for 20 years within the Catholic Church. He is the founder of Face to Face Ministries, a Lighthouse Catholic Media Speaker, author, and songwriter.
