Of course, this self-assuredness is based on the doctrine of the apostolic succession.
It engllsh not suitable. At the close of the second millennium, however, this mission is still far from complete. For what else can be meant by the thesis of the “Intimate and objective connection” between non-Catholic paths of salvation and Christ, if not ieus Christ himself makes superfluous the distinction between a “full” and “deficient” truth of salvation, since, if he is present as the instrument of salvation, he is always and logically “fully” present.

Catholic Theological Society of America, As a consequence, it is held that certain truths have been superseded; for example, the definitive and complete character of the revelation of Jesus Christ, the nature of Christian faith as compared with that of belief in other religions, the inspired nature of the books of Sacred Scripture, the personal unity between the Eternal Word and Jesus of Nazareth, the unity of the economy of the Incarnate Word and the Holy Spirit, the unicity and salvific universality of the mystery of Jesus Christ, the universal salvific mediation of the Church, the inseparability — while recognizing the distinction — of the kingdom of God, the kingdom of Christ, and the Church, and the subsistence of the one Church of Christ in the Catholic Church.

In the 20th century this inclusive approach was expressed in the condemnation of Feeneyism and in the declaration of the Second Vatican Councilwhich said that “the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator,” although this is ambiguous and numerous interpretations have arisen [ citation needed ].
Faced with certain problematic and even erroneous propositions, theological reflection is called to reconfirm the Church’s faith and to give reasons for her hope in a way that is convincing and effective.
