A CRITIQUE OF "THE CASE AGAINST FEENEY AND FOR BAPTISM OF BLOOD AND DESIRE" from the Matt.1618 web page by Adam Milller

Editor---We are posting this internet classic: A CRITIQUE OF "THE CASE AGAINST FEENEY AND FOR BAPTISM OF BLOOD AND DESIRE" from the former Tower of David Ministries site, because it seems that Adam Miller's website is no longer functioning. We hope all is well with the Miller family  and our prayers and thanks go out to you. Here is a lengthy but informative "dialog."  We hope you enjoy it! We have changed the original format slightly. "Matt.16:18", the name of Adam's opponent, will be in brown color, Adam's responses will be in black and Adam's quotes of documents will be in blue. .

This is done for the love of Holy Mother Church, her Lord and our Queen.

From MATT.16:18
THE CASE AGAINST FEENEY AND FOR BAPTISM OF BLOOD AND DESIRE
The Catholic Church teaching on No Salvation outside the church is a controversial doctrine to many people. In the latest catechism, the magisterium's understanding of the doctrine is spelled out here:
======================
Section I:
There are two erroneous presumptions present with the above opening statement.
1. Presumes that the text of the CCC is a Magisterial document. On the bottom of page 3 of the Pope's introduction to the CCC, we are told that it was compiled and put together by an "editorial committee". The Church has never exercised her binding (let alone infallible) teaching authority by means of an "editorial committee." The Magisterium is not an "editorial committee."
Also, not everything stated in the CCC is necessarily Magisterial in nature. In other words, there are numerous statements in the CCC which, IF said statements do not teach what the Church has always taught throughout her history (i.e. tradition), THEN these particular statements cannot be properly attributed to the Magisteium of the Church. They are simply the statements of Churchmen.
