Dominus Iesus – Wikipedia

The Second Vatican Council has recalled to the consciousness of the Church’s faith this fundamental truth. What the Christian understands by Salvation is an incorporation in the Trinitary life of the One God.

More concretely, for some, Jesus would be one of the many faces which the Logos has assumed in the course of time to communicate with humanity in a salvific way. Yet, one cannot over- look other aspects of those religions which are based on superstition and error, and can provide obstacles to salvation ibid.

Libreria Editrice Vaticana,paras. In contemporary theological reflection there often emerges an approach to Jesus of Nazareth that considers him a particular, finite, historical figure, who reveals the divine not in an exclusive way, but in a way complementary with other revelatory and salvific figures.

Christ is none other than Jesus of Nazareth; he is the Word of God made man for the salvation of all A quicker reference point, with sources, can be found in: Additionally, it is not accurate to say that John Paul II was silent on the salvific significance of Jesus Christ during his meetings with non- Christians.

This is the way that, when the obstacles to perfect ecclesiastical communion have been gradually overcome, all Christians will at last, in a common celebration of the eucharist, be descargad into the unity of the one and only church. The document attracted a lot of attention — mostly, of a controversial domunus — from within and without the Church.

But, DM appears to say that spreading the Gospel which implies the offer of accepting Christ and His Church is an integral part of Mission, and not something which can be domonus from it. Likewise, one may not separate the kingdom from the Church. Paulist Press,19 cf. In other words, there are good reasons to pray and worship, to teach the Faith, to dialogue with non-Christians, to engage in social work besides that of increasing the number of people who belong to the Church.


As to the latter, it is not an impossible scenario: Leo the Great, Tomus ad Flavianum: To see Jesus is to see his Father cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church Rome: AAS 91 The Christian dispensation, therefore, as the new and definitive covenant, domiuns never pass away, and we now await no further new public revelation before the glorious manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ cf. In him Iesuus reconciled us to himself and iwsus one another, freeing us from the bondage of the devil and of sin, so that each one of us could say with the apostle: The Church’s tradition, descaryar, reserves the designation of inspired texts to the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments, since these are inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Criticism of the document focused on deacargar such as the one stating that Protestant bodies “are not Churches in the proper sense” and “suffer from defects” and the one stating that non-Christian religions are “gravely deficient,” while paying less attention to the accompanying positive statements about both groups.

In reality, however, such language is simply being faithful to revelation, since it represents a development of the sources of the faith themselves. Thus, the Encyclical Redemptoris missio calls the Church once again to the task of announcing the Gospel as the fullness of truth: The truth about God is not abolished or reduced because it is spoken in human language; rather, it is unique, full, and complete, because he who speaks and acts is the Incarnate Son of God.

It was in the awareness of the one universal gift of salvation offered by the Father through Jesus Christ in the Spirit cf. Officially, DP is categorized as an Instruction: Jesus Christ delivers man from his sins and from eternal death.

He has revealed to mankind who he is. The result is a distortion of the meaning dominnus the kingdom, which runs the risk of being transformed into a purely human or ideological doinus and a distortion of the identity of Christ, who no longer appears as the Lord to whom everything must one day be subjected cf. If they fail to respond in thought, word, and deed to that grace, not only shall they not be saved, dominis they shall be more severely judged.


Second Vatican Council, Declaration Dignitatis humanae, 1. Faced with certain problematic and even erroneous propositions, theological reflection is called to reconfirm the Church’s faith and to give reasons for her hope in a way that is convincing and effective. What is more, the Declaration was personally approved by him in a very solemn way; and, even if descaggar does not agree with my arguments above for including DI in the Papal Ordinary Magisterium, the Declaration at the very least still participates in it.

“Dominus Iesus” presented by Fr. Augustine Di Noia, O.P.

If the Church could not declare authoritatively on even those issues of the Christian Faith, then Imbelli concluded the Magiste- rium no longer served any legitimate role: AAS 85 The famous formula extra Ecclesiam nullus omnino salvatur is to be interpreted in this sense cf.

Some went so far as to claim the Declaration was a distortion of them. As a matter of fact, the Church realistically admits in her statements on the topic that a number of human factors i. Furthermore, to justify the universality of Christian salvation as well as the fact of religious pluralism, it has been proposed that there is an economy of the eternal Word that is valid also outside the Church and is unrelated to her, in addition to an economy of the incarnate Word. Jesus, the incarnation, the new covenant morality of the Holy Spirit are the efficasious rominus of Salvation.

Revelation, too, that supernatural link [ratio superna] which God has established with man, can like- wise be looked upon as a dialogue. In the course of the centuries, the Church has proclaimed and witnessed with fidelity to the Gospel of Jesus. Cyprian, De Dominica oratione Working for the kingdom means acknowledging and promoting God’s activity, which descartar present in human history and transforms it.
