Au contraire mon cheri.

If one were to tell Catholics they were going to Hell because of their beliefs, that might qualify as proselytism.

Simply defending the Catholic Faith, especially in the face of blatant lies and distortions, is basic evangelization, apologetics and witnessing.

Telling others they are going to Hell because of their faith is the epitome of modern day definitions of proselytism.

On the other hand, sometimes I’d like to see the Church return to her pre-VII understanding and defense and Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. All proselytism isn’t evil, but all false ecumenism is.

It's also evangelizing...The bible isn't all a one side lovey dovey book...We have to teach the 'whole' counsel of God, and that includes teaching about hell...

So that's what converted the Roman world, huh? Good to know none of those apostles actually went anywhere and challenged anyone.

I'll keep that in mind next time some Catholic tells me I'm headed there.
