5 comments on “The Debate on Limbo with a certain “Al Francis Sotto”

  1. Teachings and doctrines are the same. and LIMBO is not really in the bible, there are many verses that can defend the statement of Sotto.

    • Amen Ralph! I do not know if you have read the statement, which is why the Catholic Church have never declared anything as Limbo to be a teaching of the church and only a point of discussion due to the reason that it is unbiblical and against Catholic Tradition as well.

      This is the very reason why I posted this here because there was really nothing to debate about with Al Sotto, because his stand and the Catholic stand are the same, yet he forces that it was not and that at a point the Catholic taught it officially when it didn’t. Therefore, was really no point of discussion because we were debating on the same side rather than contrary.

  2. I’m still confused about the limbo thing, so what happens to all the innocent people who die before Christ? Where do they go?

    • hello queenofhopes! There is nothing to be confused about limbo. Such a teaching was never and never will be part of any dogma of the Catholic Church.

      CCC 1281 states, “Those who die for the faith, those who are catechumens, and all those who, without knowing of the Church but acting under the inspiration of grace, seek God sincerely and strive to fulfill his will, can be saved even if they have not been baptized”

      CCC 1283 continues, “With respect to children who have died without Baptism, the liturgy of the Church invites us to trust in God’s mercy and to pray for their salvation.”

      In short, those who have not known anything about God and God’s own Church and by it was never baptized still have the hope of salvation when they die as long as in many ways, they were inspired with grace during their lifetime to do what is morally good and right. As for the innocent children who died before they were administered baptism, the Church trusts that God has already granted them their salvation. But it is always good to pray for them who are already in God’s arms who are also praying for us unendingly.
