I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

Not only does this provide a scenareo that would result in all four testimonies, but it is the logical theological order of what he would say when you consider the events. It is finished certainly sounds as last words.

@svidgen - I mean that the Catholic church thinks many protestants who reject the proposed authority of the Catholic church have no reason for full assurance of salvation according to RC belief. i.e. little to none chances at being saved. I think I am understanding the that this answer more or less says so.

@DavidStratton - thanks for all the good info. Now I am back to my original 'biased' view that basically it is doubtful to none, which explain the protestant equal reaction as doubtful to none that Catholics can be saved, for salvation depends on how sure one is that faith in Christ can save, not faith in church. Cheers

No, but top notch question as one could easily misunderstand some of his expressions to think he did. I will post later.

comment Why appoint Matthias to replace Judas only to later appoint Paul as a thirteenth Apostle?
Hmmm...interesting idea and I never thought of that, (+1) but I am not so convinced as I think Paul would have mentioned the position he was filling then, as he said so much about how he really, really was an Apostle. He argued his case and the argument that it needs to be filled would have added strength to that argument. Also, then why not more Apostles called directly by Christ in the flesh, as more Apostles died. Why just fill the first two holes?
