comment On Method in Catholic Moral Theology
Perhaps because the Church has yet to dogmatically settle the question of probabilism vs. probabiliorism vs. aequiprobabilism etc.

comment How can Catholic churches make rules that are not in the bible?
In other words: How can there be "Ecclesiastical faith"?

@JayarathinaMadharasan Yes, I saw that question, but it is not asking what I am asking. I am not asking about the Catholic interpretation of Matt. 5:32 and 19:9, but which denomination(s) interpret them similarly to the way the Catholic Church does.

comment Can you re-enter the catholic church after leaving?
You excommunicated yourself simply "by sending a formal letter to [your] parish"‽ And the parish sent you a letter confirming your excommunication? Talk to a priest or bishop about lifting your excommunication; this will probably require going to confession and receiving absolution.

comment Are unbaptized RCIA candidates required to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation during the RCIA process?
@AndreasBlass I don't doubt baptism remits all prior sins, but I couldn't find any magisterial document saying so. thanks

comment Are unbaptized RCIA candidates required to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation during the RCIA process?
@AndreasBlass Original sin, definitely; but also personal sin(s)? Definitely not the temporal punishment due to those sins, though.

comment According to the Catholic Church, does abortion need to be confessed, and is it a mortal or venial sin?
If in doubt whether it was a mortal or venial sin, it is much safer to play it safe and confess.

comment What is the biblical basis for classifying the Eucharist as an offering or sacrifice?
@curiousdannii Priests don't re-sacrifice Him on altars. There is only one and the same sacrifice because Christ is "a priest forever" (not just when He walked the earth 2000 years ago), "according to the order of Melchisedech" (Psa. cix. 4.). Read the passage immediately before what I quoted (§§177-178).

comment Is there a future for ecumenism? What is the main obstacle for Christian unity?
"justification by faith alone have been confirmed by both Fr. Hans Kung and Emiritus Pope Benedict XVI"‽ Do you have a source for that? That's heresy according to the Roman Catholic Church.
