The Lutheran - Catholic accord on justification was a complete disaster. In the end it accomplished nothing. How can a Lutheran be justified without professing the Catholic faith?
I don't see any other context in which the statement can be taken. It is completely straightforward. Your reference to the context is a weak attempt to dodge the issue.Then why dont you prove that this is what V2 said? It didnt say that, and you know it. The Cardinals opinion is no more then that, the Cardinals opinion. You can take it as Gospel all you like, it isnt.
How can a finite mind possibly fathom the thought processes of an Infinite Intellect?
Last time I checked, faith in Christ was working pretty well.
