Ebia,
JPII, Murphy O Connor, Balthasar all speak with authority on the scope of opinions Catholics may hold
Kalistos Ware speaks with authority on the scope of what Orthodox may believe
Rowan Williams speaks with authority on what Anglicans may believe

All say that it is legitimate to hope that God will save everybody.
I am not disputing that, I am disputing whether they say what you claim. And if you want to debate try quoting to me what they say on the matter with a link to that.
You're not bound to agree with the Cardinal is right about hell.
You would be foolish to not believe that he is right about the Catholic Church and the scope of opinion it allows.
Well you follow your Cardinal and I will follow Jesus NT teaching in Matthew 25 and Revelation 22.
Read the book first, remember.
So are you telling me the quotes were incorrect or that he corrects them?

go look in the books cited. Balthasars is a whole book on the topic. And you have the Cardinal's quote - that's sufficient for the RCC. If you claim to know anything about E Orthodoxy but aren't Orthodox you ought already to have read Timothy Ware's. When you've confined Balthazar then it's sufficient to know that he was JPII's favorite theologian - and one of Benedict XVI's for that matter.

I'm saying judge the whole of what Rob Bell says in the full context - which is largely about challenging people to think about their assumptions - rather than judging a book on somebody else's quotemining. Thats what you agreed before - that one needs to read the boom to judge it.

No, you demonstrate. I do not accept the Cardinals quote,
http://www.romancatholicism.org/fathers-will.htm
is in line with the Bible.

And I have asked you a question about the quotes. You have read the book, are they accurate or does he detract them?

I have. Reference to published works is a proper citation.

I do not accept the Cardinals quote,
he was the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. He said what he said. It's not up for you to accept or not. He speaks as an official teacher of the RCC at the highest level. If he says it without getting his knuckles rapped by the Pope then it is okay for a Catholic to hold that view.



And I have asked you a question about the quotes. You have read the book, are they accurate or does he detract them?
Anyone who wants to give informed comment on a book needs to read it. You know that.

Did you look at the website you posted - they're Sedevaticanists.
