I think we must realize that BOD is still the sacrament of baptism, only not the conventional method of receiving it. It is not salvation through desire without the sacrament. It is salvation through the sacrament of baptism given to us by virtue of our desire to receive it (or we can say "our desire to be saved").

Thanks for replying - no biggie about a late response!  :)

Any way,  BOD is not a sacrament............

St. Thomas Aquinas obviously believed that baptism of desire and blood are not sacraments at all -  he also writes that  it is the *sacrament* of baptism that is necessary for salvation, here he writes:

Objection 2. Further, Baptism is a sacrament, as we have made clear above (65, 1). Now none but Baptism of Water is a sacrament. Therefore we should not reckon two other Baptisms.

Reply to Objection 2. As stated above (60, 1), a sacrament is a kind of sign. The other two, however, are like the Baptism of Water, not, indeed, in the nature of sign, but in the baptismal effect. Consequently they are not sacraments.[" (Summa, pt. 3, q. 66, a. 11.)

Men are bound to those things without which they cannot attain salvation… Consequently, it is clear that everyone is bound to be baptized, and that without baptism there is no salvation for men." (Summa, pt. 3, q. 68, a. 1.)

Therefore, we can say that those who desire to be saved and know that to be saved one must be baptized and other requirements, that person desires to be baptized. The chances that one desires to be saved without desiring the sacrament itself are slim, and occur  when the person is totally ignorant of either the sacrament's existence or its necessity or perhaps, due to some unavoidable circumstance are not aware of it. If someone truly desires to be saved, then he must believe that he must be baptized, thus he desires it. One who desires to be saved without desiring to receive the sacrament, is not desiring to be saved at all for he rejects the necessity of baptism.

This is one opinion of many. It is not a teaching of the Church that is anywhere defined, nor is there any scriptural basis for this opinion. Again, it is one of many speculative opinions - that's all it is. I've heard opinions on BOD being able to save everyone from the unborn to Judas -  from a vague desire to a solemn desire - it just depends on how far one chooses to stretch the idea of what BOD is.

In John 3, He declares: "Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he can not enter into the kingdom of God." Christ makes no exception to this law and it is therefore general in its application, embracing both adults and infants. It is consequently not merely a necessity of precept but also a necessity of means.

I completely agree. In order to enter the kingdom of God, one must be "born again....." ie baptized. Christ made no exceptions to this law.

In the seventh session, it [trent] declares (can. v) anathema upon anyone who says that baptism is not necessary for salvation.


I agree completely that Trent defined baptism is positively necessary for salvation because justification can not be obtained, since the promulgation of the Gospel, without the washing of regeneration. Up to this point, Trent is complete agreement with the law Christ established.


(11-23-2011, 11:57 AM)LorenzoMdeVera Wrote: We have rendered votum by "desire" for want of a better word. The council does not mean by votum a simple desire of receiving baptism or even a resolution to do so. It means by votum an act of perfect charity or contrition, including, at least implicitly, the will to do all things necessary for salvation and thus especially to receive baptism.

Suddenly Trent adds a proviso to the law? I say no, absolutely not.

I am reading it with proper context in mind that says one must not only be sacramentally baptized, they must also have  the proper  intent.
For example, were one to get baptized in danger of death with no intention of converting if they live - or perhaps they get baptized in order to become heir to a fortune or marry into some royalty or some other such reason similar to the "shotgun wedding", that baptism would be rendered sinful and it would not justify the person.


Look at it this way, IF Trent was saying what most folks want them to say, they would have no way suffixed the canon with:  as it is written; unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

To me it does not make even one shred of sense for Trent to say that the desire of baptism in a pinch, is just as good as the sacrament because Our Lord said that unless we receive the sacrament we cannot see the kingdom of God...................how on earth does that make any sense to anybody I don't know.
