Baptism of Desire: Avoiding the Red Herrings on a Nearby Thread

It is possible that you may still reject it, but when we last spoke you stated that your rejection of it was based upon its contradiction of Church teaching. I can only presume, then, that if there is shown to be no contradiction, you will accept it in good will. Understanding the theological nature of "necessity," which teaching preceded the decrees of the Council of Trent by centuries, is the first step to understanding what baptism of desire is and why God would choose to work outside of the visible sign of the sacrament at all.

INPEFESS, presumption can be a sin against hope, to mix meanings up a little bit.
