Freedom in the church. As a visible society on earth the church has a right and duty to limit the freedom of its members so long as this is done in love. How does it balance these bonds and human freedom? The church differs essentially from a totalitarian regime because the latter refuses to recognize individual freedom whereas this freedom is the essence of the church (99f). It looks totalitarian when it extends ultimately basic but very general principles with increasing exactitude and certainty.

In addition, baptism has even clearer scriptural warrant. 36 2: Man in the Church c) The church also teaches that those outside the church living in invincible ignorance can be saved. Trent teaches the legitimacy of votum baptismi. This encourages Rahner to give a wider interpretation of the possibility of salvation even to those who never enter the church because: i) this position is increasingly maintained by Catholic theologians; ii) it has never been refuted by the magisterium. Traces of this position from earlier times argue there never was a complete dogmatic consensus, although earlier positions on unbaptized children indicate more is necessary for salvation than the absence of subjective guilt.

Offense against God is the essence of sin. 04 43 supernatural calling, against growth in holiness, and also against the church. Sin denies the holiness of the church and renders it sinful. This is borne out in scripture and the penitential practice of the early church. It is true of both mortal and venial sin. Would sinners not approach penance differently if they recalled the church too has something for which to forgive them? ” Matt 16:18; 18:18 points to the distance that arises between the sinner and the church on account of sin—a moral not a juridical effect as is excommunication.
