End of the Creeds!
This is the
which except a man believe faithfully and firmly,
he cannot be saved.
Faithfully and firmly —
This Creed is written for Catholics. In this sentence, a “Catholic” is an adult who understands and lives by these teachings. A Catholic who stops living by these teachings because he does not hold them faithfully and firmly will not be saved.
This Creed does not say anything about people who have never believed; Mt 25:31-46 does! Among the sheep who are saved are those who served Jesus without having recognized him....
