Why do so many Catholics drop the ball when it comes to EENS?
#78
Quote:Cornelius the Gentile: "A religious man, and fearing God with all his house, giving much alms to the people and always praying to God" was a just man and performed miracles before he was baptized by St. Peter.  Obviously, despite not being baptized, he was not worshipping a false God.

...and? Who here has denied that grace can precede Baptism? But the question that should be asked was why was Cornelius baptized anyway? He was already justified. What was the piont of sending the pope to carry out, what you would consider to be an unnecessary, ritual?

And while we're bringing up scenarios from the Acts of the Apostles, what about the Queen's eunich? Did this man not have baptism if desire? Why did God bother to send Philip miraculously to baptize him right then and there?
