An Update on the Pontificator and Limbo

October 24, 2006

Al Kimel, writing on Pontifications, has posted another article on Limbo, this time doing a masterful job of stating quite clearly why the doctrine is wrong, why children, unbaptized, still enjoy the bliss of heaven. His reason is simple: the love of God. The problem that has plagued the West on this subject is accurately analyzed as well: the false assumptions by St. Augustine, et. al. concerning what we know.

Al has been a long friend of mine, and though we took different directions when we parted ways with Anglicanism (he to Rome, I to Orthodoxy), I hold him in high regard, both for his integrity and his ability to think and write. I am pleased to see that integrity and clarity put to such good use on the subject of Limbo.

How long before they send him to Rome?
