Three Heresies in Dignitas Infinita?

Error #1: “The glorious Christ will judge by the love of neighbor that consists in ministering to the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick, and the imprisoned, with whom he identifies (cf. Mt. 25:34-36). For Jesus, the good done to every human being, regardless of the ties of blood or religion, is the single criterion of judgment.”—DI #12.

Truth #1: The interesting thing is that I “called it” even before it came out. In a recent Video Lectio Divina I did on Matthew 25, I explained how modernist heretics are correct that we will be judged on how we treated the poor but it is a total heresy to say that the corporal works of mercy are the “single criterion” (as the quote says above) at our particular judgment. In fact, such an assertion is the same as the ancient heresy of Pelagianism which holds we can be saved by good works without grace. Similarly, modernist heretics always purposefully ignore everything else that the Bible says is necessary for salvation. First, we know that only “the blood of Christ… [can] purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.”—Heb 9:15. (Talk about “blood ties” in there heretical sentence above!) Secondly, we know that Jesus Christ Himself claimed in Jn 14 that He alone was “the way and the truth and the life” (not a way or a truth or a life.) Finally, it’s a shocking heresy above to say one’s “religion” bares no bearing upon his salvation, for we know the Church even from Biblical times was called “the pillar and buttress of the truth.”—1 Tim 3:15.
