“Whenever my efforts to provide an explanation for this strange undertaking succeeded, i'd continually pay attention, ‘Oh i am getting it. You’re writing Cliffs Notes for Karl Rahner!’ I’m definite the writers of Cliffs Notes could say a similar factor approximately their paintings as I do approximately mine. it isn't meant to replacement for analyzing Rahner’s Theological Investigations. to the contrary I in actual fact desire this reference e-book will open his treasure trove of essay either to the student in addition to to different severe readers of theology. all people accustomed to Rahner’s nice 23-volume Theological Investigations understands the sequence is tough to take advantage of since it lacks a key. The titles usually fail to explain the contents of the essays thoroughly; there's no cumulative index in English; the prevailing indices on the finish of every quantity are tedious and did not distinguish major discussions of a subject from informal references; and in need of wading via a whole essay there's no method to be aware of fast even if it includes the cloth one is seeking. This e-book makes an attempt to handle those problems.” — From the Introduction.

F) There lie hidden within this formal solution a number of theological problems. One cannot assume that everyone after Christ was prevented from embracing the church without personal fault. Nor can they be regarded as the equivalent of moral infants. Desired full membership is plainly speaking not the same as actual full membership, and it is illegitimate to introduce some concept of church other than the visible church. Furthermore the discussion of actual and desired baptism/membership confuses two orders within the church: the inner realm of grace and the outer realm of visibility.
One theory among canon lawyers argues that all baptized persons (even heretics) always remain members of the church. Only their rights largely fall into abeyance. They distinguish constitutional from operative membership. Rahner disagrees with this position because it obscures what is needed for salvation; it exaggerates the confusion on the topic in fundamental theology; it is refuted by the recent encyclical; it jumps to conclusions. 01 35 remaining conditions are always co-present. In the end canonists obscure rather than clarify the borderline between membership and non-membership (24).
