Why do so many Catholics drop the ball when it comes to EENS?

Quote:The problem I have is that when many (including a few catechumens) do not, in fact, make it to the baptismal font, I am left to conclude that God has not really willed their salvation after all, which contradicts Scripture: “that God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:4).
There is no contradiction. If you believe God will provide the means of salvation to everyone who desires it and if such a person dies without said requirements then we can only conclude that they did not truly want it.

You are assuming that this hypothetical catechumen was willing and deserving of heaven.

We should not let our emotions dictate our understanding of doctrine.

If we trust that God is all loving and all merciful than no one is damned wihtout first refusing God and His grace.

Car crashes and human accidents don't stop God.
