Those who give a glass of water will not lose their reward.  I have had many people give me glasses of water in my life.  I hope they all do not lose their reward.  This and the catechism.  Where does it all end, come together?
I look at all the traditionalists and wonder.  It's not for their lack of trying sometimes.  I look at some protestants and say it is.  I wonder when someone brings me a glass of water, will they not lose their reward?
I'm a Catholic by the way.  I don't call myself a traditionalist.  I prefer to call myself a member of the Church, rather than a Catholic, if I can.
...glass of water because you belong to Christ.  I wonder how many Protestants agree with Sacred Scripture so much as to say that they do what they do because we belong to Christ.  There was an article in a recent theological journal that tried to prove that the heretics during the Council of Trent and Vatican I, provide fruitful meditations for the Orthodox side of theology.  I wonder, how many heretics will not lose their reward, if they believe in Sacred Scripture like they ought.  I have been given many glasses of water.

If they believed in Sacred Scripture like they ought, they would not be heretics.

To receive their reward, they would need to either be invincibly ignorant or completely renounce their heresy and join themselves to the Church.
Foreknowledge and full consent of the will.

Invincibly ignorant.
I heard a talk once where the speaker said it was likely hard to qualify for invincible ignorance in the information age. I would imagine it would be pretty easy to come across something Catholic (EWTN, Catholic Answers, etc) either on TV or on the radio, and definitely on the computer.

Ultimately, it's up to God to sort through all that, though.
I think that there is so much truth and error out there, it might be easy or difficult depending on the circumstances.  God will sort it all out.
