I'm not sure those are the right examples. You're talking about Scripture passages that have since been clarified by the Church, which is no difference than the Scripture passages on Baptism being clarified by the Church.

Quote:Thou shalt not kill is "de fide" in the moral world. So why is not every act of killing sinful?

Thou shalt not kill is an Old Testament commandment that was clarified by the Church.

Quote:Our Lord saying that you will have no life in you (sanctifying grace) if you do not eat His body and drink His blood. That's de fide. So what about children who don't receive the sacrament? What about those of us who don't drink His blood. He said literally blood, so we should take the chalice too, right?

Also in Scripture and then clarified by the Church.

The Church tells us how we are to understand the passages in Scripture, and the Church has very clearly stated that true and natural water is necessary for Baptism, even going so far as to warn those who would turn it into some metaphor.
