Every now and then, one can come across to questions that no matter how you answer it you end it up being left in a bad position. i.e. have you stop beating your wife?
A question with similar characteristics will be: Are you saved?…How are you supposed to answer this? Yes, I am saved and therefore and can do whatever I please and my salvation will not be compromised. Well, then No, I am not saved and then the sufferings of our Lord during His passion are not sufficient for my salvation.
Howard Kainz from the ‘The Catholic Thing” presents a reliable and well researched solution to this question that usually hunts Catholics, specially when our separated brethren ask us that same question.
